UCLA Football Schedule What To Know: Who do the Bruins miss from the Pac-12 slate?
Last year USC missed Oregon and Washington. Now it’s UCLA’s turn.
Considering the missed teams in conference play still fall along former divisional lines, not having to deal with the Ducks or Huskies from the former Pac-12 North is about as big a break as it possibly gets.
UCLA Football Schedule What Really Matters
It’s not all happy and fun in Pac-12 play.
Going down the road to USC isn’t exactly a road trip, but having to open up the conference season at Utah is a bear. In all there are five conference road trips. Arizona – a massive loss for UCLA last year – is even better this season and it’s in Tucson.
That’s tough, going to Oregon State is even nastier, and while Stanford shouldn’t be a problem, it’s a part of a rough run of three road games in four weeks.
UCLA Football Schedule What To Know: What does it all really mean?
It’s not bad.
UCLA didn’t exactly extend itself last year in non-conference play – Bowling Green, Alabama State, South Alabama – and there aren’t any Power Five programs among this year’s crop. Coastal Carolina is interesting and going to San Diego State is dangerous, but if UCLA is any sort of a player this year, those two have to be wins.
Again, no Oregon and no Washington means the world – that’s a beauty of a parting gift before going off to the Big Ten. It’s a slate built to push for ten wins if everything reloads in a hurry, but those three road games against USC, Utah, and Oregon State will mean everything.
