2017 UCLA Season Preview
The UCLA Bruins were not able to maintain their success from the past 3 years in 2015, where they had won no less than nine games in a season. UCLA ended their 2015 season with 8 wins, including a loss in the Foster Farms Bowl against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Head coach Jim L. Mora has shown that he has strong recruiting skills in the past and has the ability to work his magic coming into the 2016 season. The Bruins should have a strong offensive side of the ball in 2016, with 12 returning starters and talented sophomore quarterback Josh Rosen, who threw for 3,669 yards and 23 touchdowns last season. UCLA’s defense is in need of the most improvement in 2016 based on their lack of ability to stop the run during the previous season against opponents. With the return of Eddie Vanderdoes from a last season injury, and the combination of defensive end Takkarsit and linebacker Jayon Brown UCLA's defense could come out stronger and ready to take on their opponents. The UCLA Bruins are a favorite for the championship in the PAC 12 South division. The 2016 schedule for the UCLA Bruins is favorable for the team, but an important game to get closer to a division win will be against the USC Trojans on November 19th. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Bruins at home games or supporting UCLA on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all UCLA Bruins’ tickets, including home and away games.
UCLA Bruins Football at Rose Bowl Stadium Address: 1001 Rose Bowl Dr, Pasadena, California, 91103
The UCLA Bruins play their home games at the beautiful and historic Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California. The stadium holds over 91,000 fans for Bruins games and even more for the Tournament of Roses Parade and for the yearly Rose Bowl game. Watching a UCLA game at the Rose Bowl is one of the quintessential college football experiences a fan can have. The UCLA Bruins home bench is on the Rose Bowl Stadium sideline with sections 1-9. Rose Bowl Stadium parking information is covered in our Bruins event guide.
A rivalry that divides one of the biggest cities in the country, USC and UCLA are only 10 miles apart geographically but are on two opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to everything else. The winner of the crosstown game gets to claim the Victory Bell and many times the games puts the winner into the Rose Bowl (which is also UCLA’s home field).
UCLA in the College Football Playoff, Bowl Games, and Pac-12 Championship
Despite the vacancy in the BCS National Title department, fans support the powder blue and gold relentlessly. The Bruins have seen their share of bowl game appearances and have amassed about a half dozen wins in those appearances. They won seven Pac 10 conferences before it become the Pac 12 in 2012. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the Pac 12 Championship Game.
2015 UCLA Football Preview
UCLA failed to live up to the expectations of a PAC-12 South Division title last season, and lost possibly their best player to the NFL. Despite this, the UCLA Bruins enter 2015 as one of the PAC-12’s hottest teams. Junior quarterback Jerry Neuheisel will take over under center for the Bruins, and will have a veteran cast around him headlined by junior running back Nat Lese. While the expectations for the Bruins are diminished from a season ago, UCLA has its sights set on an appearance in the PAC-12 title game, and should have the talent to be in contention. Look for the season ending matchup with arch-rival USC to possibly be for the 2015 PAC-12 South crown. Top games on the 2015 UCLA Bruins schedule include at home against Virginia, Arizona State, and Cal, and on the road against Arizona, Stanford, and USC.
2014 UCLA Football Preview
UCLA’s 2nd season under Jim Mora saw the Bruins move closer to the top of the Pac-12. The team beat crosstown rival USC and dominated Virginia Tech in the Sun Bowl. The anticipation for the 2014 season is as high as it has been in almost a decade for the Bruins. Returning quarterback Brett Hundley is a preseason Heisman candidate and will have plenty of weapons to dish the ball to, including wide receivers Devin Fuller and Jordan Payton. The defense looks to be equally as stout and will be anchored by seniors Anthony Jefferson and Eric Kendricks. The Bruins will fight their way through one of the most exciting schedules on the West Coast. UCLA has two big non-conference games at Virginia, and against Texas in Dallas. In the Pac-12 the Bruins will take on the other 3 top ranked programs in the conference Oregon, USC, and Stanford. If Jim Mora and company can make it through this schedule without a hiccup, there will be no doubt that they will be present in the inaugural college football playoff.
2013 UCLA Football Preview
Under new head coach Jim Mora, the UCLA Bruins improved by three wins in 2012. This is significant because it was the first time the Bruins won at least nine games since 2005. Mora knows more work needs to be done, evident by the three straight losses to end the season including in the Pac-12 Championship game. Star running back Johnathan Franklin has moved on to the NFL, but UCLA returns quarterback Brett Hundley. The sophomore impressed the college world during his freshman campaign by throwing for 3,740 yards and 29 touchdowns. He also added 355 yards on the ground with nine touchdowns and has already catapulted himself as one of the top signal callers in the country. The Bruins will need to replace Franklin, but UCLA has playmakers on the outside in Shaq Evans and Jordan Payton that will be able to stretch the field and give Hundley someone to throw to.
Mora’s squad is aiming for another chance at a PAC-12 championship and the season begins with an early showdown at Nebraska in week 2 of their schedule. The Bruins will also travel to Stanford, Oregon, and rival USC with Nevada, Washington, and Arizona coming to Pasadena.
2011 UCLA Football Preview
With USC facing sanctions from the NCAA, cross-town rivals UCLA were primed to pick up the players in ‘SC’s backyard that NCAA laws said they couldn’t. It was supposed to save the Bruin program, which had been in a tailspin, even before the arrival of coach Rick Neuheisel in 2007. But that progression never materialized, not even after beating a supposed powerhouse in Texas last year. In 2011, Neuheisel is looking to a revamped staff (with five new coaches) to right the ship, but the players who were supposed to be the link to a renaissance may or may not be lurking on the sidelines.
Nowhere is that more apparent than the quarterback position. The season is approaching rapidly, but the Bruins are still trying to figure out who their signal caller is, Kevin Prince or Richard Brehaut. This overshadows the trouble they’re having solidifying the passing attack overall. It may be left up to tailback Johnathan Franklin, who rushed for over 1,100 yards last season, to lead the offense until the rest of that side of the ball is on the same page.
Defensively, the Bruins are in much better shape. They will return starters at all tiers of the ball—front line, backers and secondary. All-Pac-10 honorable mention strong safety Tony Dye is leading the way in the back, while linebackers Sean Westgate and Patrick Larimore return to strengthen the linebacking corps. The line suffers from losing Akeem Ayers to the NFL last season, but tackles Cassius Marsh and Justin Edison will bring strong 2010 seasons into 2011. They, and the rest of the defense, will hope the strong core will help opposing teams from scoring while its own offensive tries to find its identity.
2010 UCLA Football Preview
The Pac 10 Conference is so jammed with talented football teams that even the UCLA Bruins, who finished in 8th place, were able to end their season with a bowl game victory. To complete head coach Rick Neuheisel's first winning season, the Bruins defeated Temple 30-21 in the 2009 EagleBank Bowl. UCLA hopes to take some lingering momentum from the bowl game win with them in the start of the 2010 season, when they count on a few top-caliber stars to account for a lack a depth on both sides of the ball.
The Bruins were forced to replace two of their three starting linebackers this season, but the returning member, Akeem Ayers is entering the season as a strong All-American candidate. Ayers, Neuheisel and fans of the UCLA Bruins will be closely watching for defensive contributions from cornerback Sheldon Price, who many believe is primed for a breakout year. Throw in the return of Kai Forbath, a Lou Groza Award-winning kicker - arguably the best at his position in the conference - and the Bruins have a distinct advantage in many areas entering the new season.
UCLA starts the year at Kansas State and plays its first home game at the Rose Bowl on September 11, against their conference rival, Stanford.
2009 UCLA Football Preview
The UCLA Bruins head into the 2009 season looking to improve upon their 4-8 record from 2008. Head Coach Rick Neuheisel started 2008 with things looking strong in Pasadena, but hit hard times once Pac 10 play started. This is year two for Neuheisel who now has more of his own recruits in the program, so the wins should start to come more easily. If things go right for UCLA, then they could have a shot at the Pac 10 title when they face their cross town rival, the USC Trojans, late in the season. Expect the Bruins to be one of the dark horse BCS bowl contenders throughout the 2009 season.
2008 UCLA Football Preview
The UCLA Bruins football program has a rich tradition and history and is always one of the top teams in the country. Although the Bruins are coming off of a rare losing season, they will look to again climb the ranks of the Pacific 10 Conference this year and compete for another conference title and BCS bowl bid. The Rose Bowl, UCLA’s historic home field, will roar as the Bruins faithful cheer their team on to another era of greatness.
