Ok, I really have no idea how much fight the Bruins will have tomorrow against Tennessee, but I just love that cheer for some reason. The week is going well so far (well, except for misfiring on my alma mater’s pick) and I got two upset picks in the bag. Will there be a third? Read below.
Tennessee (-7.5) at UCLA
On paper, this should be an extreme mismatch. Tennessee is a traditionally upper-level team in the SEC, which is regarded as the top conference in the nation. If you don’t believe me, just ask any SEC fan, they’ll be happy to tell you. UCLA is starting a junior college transfer at QB because two others have already gotten hurt and have some turmoil in the offensive line.
However, that whole Eastern timezone team playing on the West Coast has me thinking that UCLA could have a chance. I hope they do, just so I don’t hear some sort of “SEC, SEC, SEC” chant in Pasadena. That stuff is annoying and tired. But I just don’t think UCLA has the guns at this point.
Tennessee 24, UCLA 13
Straight up record: 8-1. Record against the spread: 6-3.
