UCLA leads series 7-1.
UCLA: 1 Loss.
BYU: 9 Game Winning Streak
They beat BYU earlier in the year, 27-17.
They've had big wins, beating California and Oregon.
They are an unpredictable team, but if they somehow turn it on for this game (Hopefully, it's a bowl game) they have a sizeable chance of winning.
They are much more experienced in playing big-time Pac-10 teams, and if you look at their schedule, it looked like a 6-6 season any way you slice it.
They have an excellent kicker, which could come in handy for their tired offense.
Their coach got fired, and their Defensive coordinator is the head coach.
It has been considered an overall dissapointment of a season for the usually stronger Bruins.
Their defense has been easily broken by any decent offensive team....those shoes are easily filled by BYU.
They've lost against some real stinkers, such as Washington State and Notre Dame.
They have lost multiple players on offense, so it's unlikely they'll be able to compete in a shootout.
THEY LOST TO NOTRE DAME!!!!
Uh....can you say 10 wins?
Their only losses came to UCLA itelf (when they were ranked #13) and against a very strong Tulsa team.
They lead one of the best offenses in the nation, and could beat UCLA in a shootout.They have one of the nations top defenses.
Their Kicking has been inconsistent.
Zorgon: BYU. UCLA is coachless, has lost players, has been in a slump....I just don't know what else to say. Lopsided.
OKLuschen: BYU. UCLA has lost to a lot of teams worse than this in the course of the season. Brigham Young usually plays well in their bowl games, and and they are most likely the oldest team in the NCAA, which is good for maturity and experience.
Jason Frost: UCLA. The head coach is gone, but is this really a bad thing. The defensive cordinater is now coach, and he did an amazing job managing the only unit that did anything for the Bruins. Now with full controll over the team, expect a defensive battle with UCLA winning by a FG.
Bottom Line: BYU 2, UCLA 1
