UCLA Simply Has Not Been Able To Beat Stanford

UCLA’s season has already been too much to handle for fans and it may not get any easier against Stanford this weekend. The Bruins have lost nine straight games against the Cardinal – covering just once in that span – by an averaging scoring margin of 18.3 points per game.

Shark Bites
  • In 2 games against Stanford, Josh Rosen has 574 passing yards with 4 TDs and 2 INTs.
  • UCLA is 1-6 SU in its last 7 games against the Pac-12.
  • Stanford is 6-0 ATS in its last 6 games after losing as a favorite.

UCLA has gone from one extreme to the next this season with a huge fourth-quarter comeback in its season opener and then a depressing defeat last week. Quarterback Josh Rosen has been spectacular at times and rather pedestrian in key moments. His two interceptions last week were a huge factor and he looked mediocre until the fourth quarter in Week 1. Calling more running plays and taking some of the onus off of Rosen could go a long way.

Stanford enters this game coming off back-to-back road losses. In the combined 120 minutes of play in those two contests, the Cardinal had possession for just 48:11 with 24 first downs. Outside of stud running back Bryce Love, who has accounted for 42 percent of the team’s yardage, the offense has been stagnant.
