UCLA head coach Chip Kelly knew coming into this season that there were going to be a lot of growing pains in his first season. In just 3 weeks, UCLA has fallen to 0-3, quarterback Devon Modster announced on Twitter he is transferring, and the father of freshman quarterback Darrian Thompson-Robinson has made it public that Chip Kelly's time at Oregon was basically a fluke.
A win on Friday against a tough Colorado team that has scored over 40+ points twice already this season could be what this young UCLA team needs to start turning things around.
The offense of Colorado has been clicking through three games and have opened up as huge favorites to win this game.

This UCLA team is very young on both sides of the ball, which is why coming out with a victory Friday could be what this team needs to rally around Chip Kelly. Showing the program that they can go on the road against a very tough offense to defend and come out with a win can be huge.
