2016 UCLA Season 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.
