UCLA will be fielding one of the best teams in the Jim Mora era this fall and even though they lose three-year starting quarterback Brett Hundley, the Bruins are expected to do big things, mostly because they return 18 starters from last season.

Last year, UCLA Football ended the season 10-3, defeated USC for the third straight year, defeated Kansas State in the Valero Alamo Bowl and ended the season ranked 10th in the Final AP Poll. Needless to say, it was a very successful 2014.

This season, the Bruins will try to improve off of that as they look to capture the South Division, Pac-12 Conference and possibly earn a trip to the Rose Bowl or the College Football Playoff. Though not impossible, reaching these goals will be tough as they will take on several other Pac-12 teams who also made the AP Top 25.

In order, here are the listed Pac-12 teams: #7 Oregon, #8 USC, #15 ASU, #21 Stanford and #22 Arizona.

Though they are not ranked, the Utah Utes are also in the mix to, at the very least, win the Pac-12 South Division.

The Top 5 of the poll has Ohio State as #1 team in the nation (with 61 unanimous first place votes), TCU as #2, Alabama at #3, Baylor at #4 and Michigan State at #5.

Here is the full Top 25 rankings:
