The Colorado Buffaloes rolled past Arizona last weekend for their first Pac-12 win and now they hope to build on that on Saturday against the UCLA Bruins. Against Arizona, Colorado scored a season-high 48 points and generally had their way with the Wildcats. The offense put up over 200 yards through the air and on the ground. To pick up a win in the Rose Bowl, they're going to need to carry some of that offensive momentum into this weekend.
UCLA is coming off a disappointing 31-6 loss at Utah. At 5-5 overall, the Bruins are not yet bowl eligible and should be motivated for what is their final home game of the season.
The Bruins rank 9th in the Pac-12 in total offense despite averaging nearly six yards per play, while the Colorado offense ranks 11th. On the defensive side, the Bruins are 9th in the Pac-12 in total defense, and the Buffs are 11th.
