It Is Time… Beat Stanford!


Forget the past, the future is now and for UCLA Football, their future is a clash with the troublesome Stanford Cardinal.

This last week was pretty much the worst for UCLA. The Bruins lost to Arizona State at home. Myles Jack official left UCLA. Jim Mora had the national media come down on him and other problems occurred. What a way to spend a bye week.

But that is now OVER (technically)! With the weird shift in schedule to accommodate the Thursday Night Game phenomenon, even though the rest of the Week 6 games have not been played yet, the Bruins start game week a little earlier.

Because of that, so will Go Joe Bruin as we will start to trickle in information about one of toughest games on the schedule against Stanford.

Yes, the Mighty Cardinal. The game that Bruin fans have been dreading all preseason is next on the docket and UCLA has to put something truly special together if they want to defeat Stanford for the first time in eight tries.

But consider this, UCLA just lost at home to Arizona State behind a weak offensive output as stated by Offensive Coordinator Noel Mazzone. Along with that, the Bruins are coming out of a bye week and under Jim Mora, UCLA has not lost a game following a bye week. Additionally, this is going to be played on a Thursday night and as we have recently seen, Thursday night games can be wacky.

Now I am not saying that this is going to be a straight up victory for UCLA, instead, I am saying be prepared for anything.

We will start our UCLA-Stanford coverage starting tomorrow as we will bring you everything you need to know about the Fight at the Farm. We will also recap what is sure to be am exciting weekend in the Pac-12 with Oregon State at Arizona, Washington State at Oregon, Colorado at Arizona State and the big one, the one ESPN College Gameday calls home on this Saturday, #23 Cal at #5 Utah.

Get ready to embrace the chaos folks!
