Staff Prediction

UCLA will finally be able to end their losing skid in this one. They are averaging 40 PPG and over 500 YPG. DTR will be able to light up the Bears defense that allows over 280 passing YPG while Charbonnet should have no problem complimenting his QB with a solid ground game. UCLA will roll in this one and get some momentum ahead of bowl season.
