It’s time for Pac-12 play, friends. UCLA starts its conference slate with Stanford on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Stanford Stadium. Both teams are coming off upsets that knocked them out of the AP rankings.

UCLA links: Despite underwhelming start, Stanford still powerful

Stanford has a very un-Stanford-like record and rushing defense, but UCLA head coach Jim Mora is not convinced this year’s version of the Cardinal are any different than previous iterations.

“They’re still Stanford,” Mora said. “They’re smart, they’re tough, they’re physical, they’re disciplined.”

The Cardinal have allowed 478 rushing yards in the past two games — both losses — and the Bruins are hoping to maintain an upward trend in their running attack. UCLA had a season-high 170 rushing yards last week against Memphis.
