Arizona vs. UCLA 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

After a wild 45-43 win on the road last week, the UCLA Bruins will face Arizona at home on Saturday.


The UCLA Bruins return home on Saturday to face the No. 22 Arizona Wildcats. UCLA has won two straight games and could be playing for first place in the Pac-12 South.

At 3-2 in conference play, the Bruins are currently tied for second place in the division, behind 4-2 USC. The Trojans, however, play No. 4 Oregon on Saturday. If they lose and UCLA wins, the Bruins would move into first place in the division.

Saturday's game will feature two of the best offenses in college football. Arizona is fourth in the nation in yards per game at 553.6, while UCLA is 12th at 502.9. Freshman quarterback Brett Hundley leads the Bruins. He threw four touchdown passes last week and has thrown for at least 250 yards in six of UCLA's eight games.

Running back Johnathan Franklin surpassed the 1,000-yard mark last week and could set a new career high on Saturday. Franklin has rushed for 1,042 yards this season, just 85 yards shy of his previous season high of 1,127. Arizona has the 73rd-ranked rush defense, allowing an average of 167.5 rushing yards per game this season.

The Bruins have lost five straight games to Arizona, including a 48-12 loss in Tuscon last season. UCLA has not beaten the Wildcats at home since 2006.
