How to Watch Stanford at UCLA: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio and More
The Bruins face the Cardinal at home in the final game of the 2020 season.
Today’s game will be the final game UCLA plays during the 2020 season. That’s because, win or lose, the Bruin players have chosen to decline to play in a bowl game this season. That essentially makes today’s game the Bruins’ bowl game and it may be a better matchup than UCLA would have had if they did go to a bowl game as these teams look to be pretty even.
Let’s look at the keys to the game.
Keys to the Game
Of course, anyone who has followed along this year knows what our keys to the game are going to be. Some may say that it’s lazy to have the same three keys each week, but I argue that anyone who has followed this team understands what they need to do to succeed.
There is no bigger difference maker than turnovers. When the Bruins lose the turnover game, they lose the game. When they don’t lose the turnover game, they win. I’m not sure how much simpler it can be.
Stanford holds the season edge with a +4 turnover margin while UCLA have a -4 turnover margin for the season. That may not bode well for the Bruins. UCLA needs to create turnovers while avoiding mistakes on their side of the ball.
2. Demetric Felton.
Is there a bigger playmaker for the Bruins? The game is different when Felton is in. Does anyone really doubt that UCLA gets the first down last week against Southern Cal if Felton was in the game instead of Keegan Jones? I’m not knocking Jones, but he missed the obvious hole that Felton would have scampered through for the first down. Bruin fans across the country were left wondering why Felton wasn’t in the game for that critical play and Chip Kelly offered no explanation afterwards for the boneheaded move by him and his coaching staff. Give Felton the damn ball, especially when it counts!
The Bruin defense has shown a lot of improvement this season. They managed to effectively employ a pass rush which was non-existent last season. The Bruins did a much better job against Kedon Slovis this year than last year. Now, they need to finish strong with an effective pass rush against Davis Mills, who has not thrown an interception all season, and they need to force him to make some mistakes.
