It has been a rough start for Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins this season. After dropping to 0-5 after the recent loss to a Top 10 team, Chip Kelly is still searching to try and get into the win column.
On Saturday, UCLA was within 7 points of Washington until the Huskies just took over in the fourth quarter of the game.
This Saturday, the Bruins take on Cal Berkley and Chip Kelly didn't seem to stress the importance of this one particular game only.
It is always important to get a win. You don't say it's important this time as opposed to another time.
Each week, you can see this UCLA team progressing and this Bruins team doesn't seem to be as bad as their record suggests. They are tenth in rushing, eleventh in scoring defense, as well as tenth in rushing defense.
The big problem is the passing game hasn't been consistent enough to finish off teams. With a couple of chances last week, UCLA couldn't find a way to keep consistent drives going to close out Washington.
This week, Cal has a good reason to worry that UCLA could possibly get their first win of this season. They just might be catching on to what Chip Kelly is trying to teach.
