UCLA Bruins vs. Utah Utes Pick
We are going to lean towards the Bruins and the points. We would love to discover if Cameron Rising is going to be in good health for this game, but even if he were to be so, we think that Nate Johnson has earned at the very least a look.
Utah’s defense is also going to be a key factor, but Dante Moore has been looking really good thus far and we think that, worst case scenario, this will come down to a field goal if UCLA doesn’t get the chance to win the game outright.
