Washington looks like a Top 10 program and UCLA looks like… UCLA. Unless the Huskies all miraculously get sidelined with academic probation, it’s going to be another looong day at the Rose Bowl. Washington 42 – UCLA 10
Washington gets the win. UCLA gets… some sun and exercise. Washington 45 – UCLA Vitamin D
There will be Bruin blood. Washington 41 – UCLA 3
Bruins look for modest improvements against a better opponent but never threaten. Washington 31 – UCLA 13
What would happen if the Wile E Coyote ever caught the roadrunner? This is probably the worst matchup for UCLA as currently constructed but the defense will probably play over their heads to keep it close. And by close, I mean a 3 touchdown loss. UCLA football has a really tough schedule and this one is probably the toughest game thus far. Washington 31 – UCLA 10
Should I be covering this game? Should I maybe go to the movies and see a bad Tom Cruise film? Should I just go to sleep early? None are appealing though I figure I have to pick one. Though UCLA is not doing that well this year, there are glimmers of hope in each game. If anything, that should get me motivated for the next chapter of the Chip Kelly era, which will not begin for another 11 months.
So for now, I guess I will fight through the pain and continue to look for the positives with the Bruins. Hey, I need something to write about for my ‘Way Too Optimistic Monday’ tweets. Washington 38 – UCLA 10
