UCLA vs. Utah odds: Bruins favored by 6 points over Utes

Despite dropping out of the AP Top 25 in embarrassing fashion, the UCLA Bruins are still considered early favorites over the Utah Utes for Saturday's Pac-12 duel.

The UCLA Bruins (4-2) may be coming off a devastating 43-17 loss to Cal, but they're still considered six-point favorites by Vegas for their home matchup against the Utah Utes (2-3) this Saturday.

UCLA's most recent defeat dropped them out of the AP Top 25, but they still have a chance to salvage their 2012 Pac-12 campaign with important games upcoming against Arizona State and USC.

The Utes have failed to register a win in conference play so for this season, losing to ASU 37-7 a few weeks ago before dropping their first game out of the bye to USC, 38-28.

The Bruins will be seeking revenge for last year's 31-6 loss to the Utes in Salt Lake. But if they're looking for better results, they'll have to find a way to stop John White. The senior running back ate UCLA's front seven alive in 2011, rushing for 167 yards with three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving) on 33 carries.
