How to Watch Arizona State at UCLA: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio and More
After beating Stanford last week, the Bruins return home tonight to host the Sun Devils in a key Pac-12 South matchup.
This evening, the UCLA Bruins return to home after beating Stanford on the road last weekend. Tonight’s game looks to be a good one. It’s a battle for first place in the Pac-12 South between the Bruins and Arizona State. ASU likes to run the ball in the red zone and their defense is excellent. As a result, UCLA will need to play well on both sides of the ball in order to win.
Keys to the Game
The keys to this week’s game are pretty simple.
1. Keep Running the Ball.
Given that ASU has one of the top pass defenses in the country, UCLA needs to keep running the ball well. The thunder-and-lightning combination of Zach Charbonnet and Brittain Brown have led the Bruins with 627 yards rushing already this season. If the Bruins can manage to run for another 200 yards as a team, they should win.
2. Contain Jaylen Daniels.
Jaylen Daniels is not much of a deep threat, but he is the Sun Devils leading rusher. UCLA needs to contain him with the guys up front and keep the defensive backs and linebackers close to the line of scrimmage to stop the short to intermediate passing game.
UCLA has done an excellent job of holding onto the ball. The Bruins currently have a +3 turnover ratio. Meanwhile, ASU has a -1 turnover ratio. If UCLA can turn the ball over more than ASU, it should bode well for the Bruins.
4. DTR’s Shoulder
Normally, I have three keys to the game. This week, I’m adding a fourth. While there were reports that UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson was able to practice on Monday after taking a beating against Stanford, if he is unable to go or gets hurt again, the Bruins will need to rely on Ethan Garbers, who has looked good in his limited playing time so far this season.
