Since UCLA’s season opener against Rice is now right around the corner. By that time, we’ll all have abstained from pizza, wings and alcoholic beverages for about nine days so we can binge on all three on August 30.
Fans are getting pumped, too. We asked them on Twitter for their predictions vs. Rice, and they weren’t too kind to the Owls from Houston. Here’s what they said:

The average score that fans gave for our game against Rice is 32 to 8, which is not exactly the closest game ever in UCLA history.
It should be fun, and fans are getting pumped. Just get here already, football season.
