In the beginning on the season, the UCLA Bruins were a mess after the slow and a lot of talk happening whether they made the right decision or not. Here in October, the Bruins find themselves right in the thick of things in the Pac-12 race.
After wins against Cal Berkley and the Arizona Wildcats, a win against Utah on Friday at 7:30 p.m. PT can put UCLA at 2-5 and 2-2 in the Pac 12 which could possibly put them on top of the division standings. They will need losses from Colorado and USC to make this all possible.
A big reason for the last two wins has be running back Joshua Kelley who has been a star this season rushing for four consecutive 100-yard games and averaging 4.2 yards a carry. This Friday, UCLA will go up against the best running defense in the nation in Utah, which is going to put more pressure on QB Wilton Speight to throw against this defense.
