A short time ago, Ben Bolch of the LA Times tweeted that it looks like UCLA will be without DTR again today.
Thuc Nhi Nguyen went a little further.
Personally, I think that’s good for the Bruins as long as Chase Griffin can avoid turning the ball over because, when turnovers become points for UCLA’s opponents, the Bruins lost. Overall, though, I think for a quarterback making his first collegiate start last week, he looked good and, dare I say it, I think he looked better than DTR looked in his first game and at least as good as DTR has played so far this season.
There. I said it.
Let’s look at the game time weather forecast.
It will be a mild and clear night at the Rose Bowl. The temperature will be about 65° degrees at kickoff. While there will be a slight breeze, it shouldn’t have much effect on the game.
Look for it to cool off a little as the game progresses. The temperature should be about 60° around halftime and will drop into the upper 50s during the fourth quarter.

Freshman QB in for AZ?
Aside from the 25 yard QB scramble, that was a good D series.
Our history of making backup QBs look like Payton Manning isn't lost on me though
Rose Bowl looks even emptier than usual.
STOP RUNNING UP THE MIDDLE OUT OF SHOTGUN ON 3RD OR $TH AND 1 TO GO!!!!!!
Same as a TO.
Essentially a turnover on our first drive.
What are we doing!!!!
Nice little bailout with the penalty. Good drive so far.
I’m not sure our playcalling is doing our QB any favors right now.
1 for 1 on FGs this season.
We're doomed if AZ doesn't get their starting QB back.
We need to pass on first down, that’ll open up the running game.
D pretty solid so far.
I still haven’t gotten used to the soundtrack vs. the empty stadium. It just feels wrong.
That’s what I’m talking about.
Felton will break a long one tonight.
So far our kickers are our best players.
Best D has looked in years....keep running the ball and az will be gassed by 3rd qtr
Sigh. I miss the edit function lol
oof. Bad decision by Griffin. Lucky to get that one back
This game is moving right along. It feels like it just started.
There's the big one Army was predicting, but that hold is gonna kill it.
Felton! Even though it didn’t count.
That call was bs though.
Good time for some tempo. Phew
Fortunate. But then, I didn’t see a hold on Fernea, either. SPTRs in force!
Great pass pro, nice check down by Griffin, great run after the catch by Brown. That was some good looking football!!!
That kid’s a bruiser too.
Kind of an unfair question, but does DTR make that TD pass?
Man, I'm surprised he didn't get forward progress on that.
Got lucky there.
Lots of good QB pressure tonight.
Felton is so damn great.
OL really doing a nice job tonight
UCLA 20 UofA 7 at halftime
And it's not that close.
Felton with 123 yds on 20 carries at the half
Staying here for the second half?
We’re due to pick one off.
Nice sack by Eboh!
The 2nd Half thread is up! Closing comments here....
