What’s Bruin Show – Episode 73 – UCLA Football and the “W” Against BYU


In Episode 73 of the What’s Bruin Show, we examine the heart-attack inducing spectacle that was UCLA Football defeating BYU. We then look ahead to Arizona as the Bruins open Pac-12 play.

In our latest episode, hosts Bill Shirley, Jake Merrifield and I examine the the latest victory for UCLA Football as they defeated BYU 24-23 at the Rose Bowl. What a game it was as the Bruins eked out a win in what was one of the best defensive efforts and worse passing efforts this season.

As far as the running game goes, Paul Perkins is THE MAN!

Indeed, but we have more to talk about as we look ahead to the Pac-12 opener for UCLA Football. This Saturday, the Bruins take on the Arizona Wildcats in a game against ranked opponents. This game is so big that ESPN has College Game Day is heading out to Tucson to cover the contest. Now that is big!

Joining us to talk about Arizona is Zona Zealots Editor, Shareen Rayan who gives us her opinion on the Game That Will Be.

We then get into some Pac-12 talk, specifically the USC debacle against Stanford. To help us understand what is going on with the Trojans, we talk to Reign of Troy Editor, Alicia de Artola.

We then get a special “Cal Report” from LA Sports Hub writer, Jamaal Artis, who thinks he is in Chicago.

DISCLAIMER: We recorded this podcast the night before the information on Myles Jack came out, so disregard our preview of him against Arizona. Also, we will have a special podcast specifically about Jack in the next few days.
