First off, we welcome LA Sports Hub (part of the Fansided Network) writer Jamaal Artis who talks UCLA, Pac-12 Football and a bit of LA Sports. We also welcome back a cult figure of the What’s Bruin Show, “The Sports Godfather” Jim Bendat as he shares his knowledge of UCLA.

BUT THAT IS NOT ALL! We welcome Leah Falcon and Emil Shallon, Co-Presidents of UCLA’s Student Section, THE DEN, as they talk about the return of UCLA Football, what THE DEN has in store for us this year and their predictions for the 2015 season.

See, we told you this was a huge episode!

So what do we talk about? UCLA Football, of course!

We start things off by addressing the arrest and suspension of Bruin defensive back Ishmael Adams and what this means for the season opener.

Speaking of season opener, we get back to form as we preview the Virginia Cavaliers with ‘Jake’s Trivia’ and ‘Know Your Opponent’! And finally, after a long summer, we can finally get back into the weekly segment, ‘The Game That Will Be’!

We then go over the first big weekend of Pac-12 and college football! We also bring back a special segment, the ‘LA Sports Express’ as we talk Dodgers, Shaq and Kobe and a little bit of the LA Kings. It is huge I tell you!
