UCLA Football will kick off its season on November 7th in Boulder against the Colorado Buffaloes. Let’s take a look at how the Bruins match up against CU.
UCLA Football will play just six regular-season games this upcoming season, meaning that every game is twice as big.
The Bruins will be thrown into the fire early on, as they will have a big road test to start the season in Colorado.
While the Buffaloes had a down season, finishing 5-7 in Mel Tucker’s first season as head coach, the Buffaloes have always put a competitive team on the field since joining the Pac-12, and this season is no different. This season will be their first under new head coach Karl Dorrell.
As a matter of fact, there probably aren’t two more comparable or evenly-matched teams in the conference than the Buffs and the Bruins.
Both teams have their questions marks, both had signature wins last season, and both will look for improvement from mediocre 2019 seasons.
Colorado will have a new quarterback under center, while UCLA will have a new look on defense and in the offensive backfield. The openeer should be an intriguing game that will give us a good sense of the level of play that each team will provide the conference in 2020.
With a little under a month to go before kickoff, let’s take a look at how the two teams match up on offense, defense, and special teams.
