In episode 139 of the ‘What’s Bruin Show’ we preview the first game of 2017 against Texas A&M. Joining in on the analysis is sports broadcaster and UCLA cheer alumna Danielle Alvari.

In the latest episode, hosts Bill Shirley, Jake Merrifield and I welcome Emmy nominated sports broadcaster and all-around Bruin, Danielle Alvari, as we discuss the start of UCLA Football’s 2017 season.

We begin with a quick introduction of our guest and talk about her journeys from the Bay Area to Westwood to Wyoming and back as she is out to conquer the world, Josh Rosen-style.

Alvari has covered a vast amount of sporting events which has led her to her current position as a sports broadcaster and host of The 2 Minute Warning which you can find on YouTube.

Then we shift to a segment we have been waiting all summer for, ‘The Game That Will Be’ as we preview the matchup between the Bruins and the Texas A&M Aggies in their Sunday afternoon game at the Rose Bowl.

After an off-season full of alternations to the fabric UCLA’s offense, will Josh Rosen and the Bruins come out ready to play? What does this mean for Head Coach Jim Mora if they lose? What does it mean if they win? We get into all of that as well as give out predictions for the game.

We also check in on the rest of the Pac-12 and preview the squeezably soft season openers for the majority of the Pac-12 Football teams.
