Every game is critical at this point in the season, but the UCLA Bruins need a signature victory on their resumé. With the nationally ranked Arizona State Sun Devils making the trip to Los Angeles this weekend, that victory can be achieved if the team can avoid the silly mistakes that have plagued them throughout the season.
The Sun Devils will not fall easily. Quarterback Brock Osweiler has been excellent in 2011 and Vontaze Burfict is one of the best linebackers in the country. Arizona State has been prone to falling behind early on the road and they will look to buck that trend this afternoon.
