Head Coach Jim Mora and his team has had two weeks to regroup. UCLA has dropped seven in a row to Stanford including a 31-10 loss in the 2014 season. The Bruins are going to be without All-American linebacker Myles Jack who is out for the season with a knee injury. The latest casualty on the UCLA roster is wideout Mossi Johnson who also is out for the season. Freshman signal caller Josh Rosen is more than capable of making big plays but must play smart against a tough Stanford defense. The current UCLA coaching staff has been dominated by Stanford. In the past, UCLA has not been able to adjust to the hybrid offense ran by Stanford. Mora knows the Cardinals are stout up front on both sides of the football. Stanford has one of the best defensive lines in College Football. The key to a UCLA victory is to be ready for a physical style football contest.
