The UCLA Bruins will travel to face #11 Oregon Ducks on Saturday, November 21. The game can be seen on ESPN at 12 p.m.

The Oregon Ducks hold a 2-0 record after defeating Stanford and Washington State.

UCLA sits 1-1 after getting a definitive win over California despite the game coming short notice after the Utah cancellation. This win came in the aftermath of an upset the week prior to Colorado. 

The Ducks have won their last five games while the Bruins have lost four of their last five.

According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, the Ducks have an 87.1 chance of coming out as the winner.

While Oregon leads the PAC-12 in total offensive yards (538.5), UCLA is top-5 in every defensive category in the conference.

Despite Oregon having a superior offense, UCLA’s offensive unit seemed to come alive against Cal. The team will hope to continue their offensive momentum on Saturday.

Oregon will be without key contributors on both sides of the ball. Receiver Mycah Pittman, and defensive backs Steve Stephens and Daewood Davis will be out for the second straight game.

Oregon starting safety Nick Pickett will sit out the first half after a targeting call in the second half against Washington State.

Ducks freshman linebacker Justin Flowe is out for the remainder of the season after suffering a torn meniscus.

The final result will simply come down to which team’s strength will be superior to the other’s.
