UCLA doesn’t have many reasons to be confident. Its defense is ranked 128th out of 129 FBS teams in rushing yards allowed. Its offense has turned the ball over 15 times this season. It has a disappointing 3-3 record after losing its first game to Arizona since 2011.

But with half of their season left, the Bruins are trying to rebuild their belief on whatever shaky foundation they have going into this Saturday’s game against Oregon at 1 p.m. at the Rose Bowl.

“We have to move away from being fragile and move into being confident,” head coach Jim Mora said.
