UCLA Bruins at Southern Cal Trojans Game Thread

It’s been an up and down season for UCLA and Southern Cal. While the Trojans appeared to have thrown in the towel on the season when Clay Helton was fired after just the second game of the season, the fate of Chip Kelly remains undetermined. A loss today will likely go a long way towards deciding his fate.

The Bruins have lost the last two games to the Trojans and they have not won at the Coliseum since 2013. But UCLA’s 3-1 road record is the best in the Pac-12.

More than likely, it looks like the game will go to the team who can force the other to turn the ball over. UCLA has a +4 turnover ratio while Southern Cal’s ratio is -1. That would seem to favor the Bruins.

But make no mistake…today’s game is going to be a war.

Let’s look at the game time weather forecast.

Game Time Weather Forecast

Today’s game will be about as perfect as you can get for the third Saturday of November. It should be a cool 65° degrees and partly cloudy at the Coliseum for kickoff. The temperature should remain pretty constant through halftime before slipping a little into the lower 60s during the fourth quarter.

Listen to the Game With TMB!

TuneIn.com now has UCLA’s football games listed as “premium” content. So, rather than using TuneIn, you can just listen through the official website like we have done with the small sports for a long time in order to listen to Josh Lewin and Matt Stevens call today’s game instead of Joe Davis, Brock Huard and Bruce Feldman. So, it;s probably worth it to turn the sound off. If you do prefer UCLA’s radio team, be sure to right-click on it so that you can open up another tab and have it going while you chat in the comments below. Listen to today’s game online.
