In a game from NCAAF Week 5, we will see UCLA Bruins at Colorado Buffaloes.
The UCLA Bruins started the season surprisingly with 3 losses. In their defeat against Fresno State, 38-14, UCLA struggled both on offense and defense. UCLA are averaging just 17 points per game and 319 total yards on offense. QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson has completed 54.7% of his passes for 2 TD & 2 INT while averaging 174 passing yards per game. Defensively, they are allowing 37 points per game and 403 total yards.
The Colorado Buffaloes continued their good start of the season with a win against New Hampshire Wildcats by 45-14, improving to 3-0. The main man on offense is their running back Travon McMillian who had 162 rushing yards and 2 TDs on 15 carries against UNH. QB Steven Montez has completed 73.4% of his passes for 8 TD & 2 INT while averaging 285.0 passing yards per game. Defensively, they are allowing just 18 points per game and 373 total yards.
Chip Kelly’s UCLA squad is talented but they are lacking cohesion. The team had many off-the-field distractions in recent weeks and they’re not helping themselves. There are questions if the players believe in Chip Kelly’s game plans. It is tough to trust the Bruins at the moment. I’m going with the points.
