UCLA Hopes Third Time Is The Charm Visiting Stanford For PAC-12 Showdown

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:56:44 AM

The Stanford Cardinal have taken down the conference-rival UCLA Bruins in both of their meetings over the past 10 months, including in last year’s PAC-12 Championship game. UCLA football fans are hoping the third time will be the charm for their football program, with the chance to shake up the BCS standings even further when they visit Stanford this week. The Cardinal dropped to No. 13 in the nation after losing on the road at Utah last week, and now the Bruins will try and send them to their second online sports betting loss in as many weeks with the chance to shock the world on the road.

Coming up just short on the road at Utah last week was not the way that Stanford wanted to enter arguably their toughest stretch of the year, which includes playing UCLA this week, at Oregon State next week, and then home to second-ranked Oregon the week after that. A win over the Bruins would help the overall outlook, but it won’t be easy.

That’s because the UCLA offense has been on fire through five-straight wins to open the year, ranking in the top-12 both on the ground and through the air while scoring at least 34 points in each of their victories. Quarterback Brett Hundley has thrown for 1,469 yards and 12 touchdowns, including a career-best 410 yards against California that matched the third-highest total in program history. Hundley will need another big performance to get the Bruins past Stanford, as they have lost five-straight in this series. Ultimately the defense will need to be able to make stops as well, and that could be tough in a difficult environment on the road.

The loss to the Utes ended a 13-game winning streak, and marked quarterback Kevin Hogan’s first defeat as a starter. He will need to put that loss in the past in a hurry, especially considering how the offense has stalled in the past two games. Stanford will need better balance on offense, and that means feeding senior running back Tyler Gaffney more and letting him pound the rock while keeping the defense on the sideline so that they are fresh. The Cardinal defense has given up more than 400 yards in consecutive weeks for the first time since October of 2011, and can’t afford not to be better in this week’s match up at home.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Stanford has dominated this series and has the home advantage as six-point online betting favorites, but even if they are able to turn things around it will be tough to cover the touchdown against this determined Bruins’ team. UCLA is looking to make a statement on the road this week and the Cardinal have had major issues on both sides of the ball of late, so even if Stanford wins this game the Bruins should have a good chance to cover.
