The teams are set, the guest coaches are on board. The UCLA spring game is officially a go.

Head coach Jim Mora has finalized plans to have a live spring game on Saturday at Drake Stadium. He hasn’t revealed the rosters for the blue and white teams yet, but said there will be two national-championship-winning guest head coaches on the field.

In front of what they hope will be a big crowd, the Bruins intend to impress their fans while climbing back from their disappointing season last year.

“It gives us a chance and an opportunity to show them (the fans) what we’ve been working for and working at this whole spring ball,” sophomore running back Brandon Stephens said.
