UCLA Bruins Football Schedule
There are few college football venues in the country that can compare to the Rose
Bowl, the Pasadena, California home of the UCLA Bruins, especially in recent years as the team has climbed back to the top
of the heap in the PAC 12 conference. Playing in the PAC 12 assures the Bruins of going up against many of the best teams
in the country during the regular season including USC, Oregon, Stanford, Arizona State, and others but the Bruins have the
talent to take on any team in the country. Hopes are even higher than normal for the 2014 UCLA Bruins after an impressive
spring workout that saw the offense adjust quickly to the new system being installed by first year offensive coordinator Noel
Mazzone. Despite the offense being more pass-happy this season, running back Johnathan Franklin had an impressive spring which
assured that he will remain a vital part of the offense under Mazzone. There appears to be plenty of depth on the other side
of the ball and returning stars defensive end Datone Jones and linebacker Damien Holmes will lead the charge. This could well
be the year that the Bruins recapture the PAC 12 title but they will need the support of all of their most loyal fans to give
them a significant home field advantage if they are going to accomplish that goal.
This season the UCLA Bruins have
the honor of being part of one of the biggest regular season games of the year when they are part of the Cowboys Showdown
at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This year's Cowboys Showdown will pit the Bruins against the Texas Longhorns in what
is sure to be one of the most exciting and highly watched games of the year. On October 11th the Oregon Ducks come to Pasadena
for a high-octane PAC 12 showdown that will be one of the biggest games of the year. Speaking of big games there is nothing
bigger in Los Angeles than when the UCLA Bruins take on the USC Trojans, a game that will be held at the Rose Bowl on November
22nd. All of the biggest college football fans in the Los Angeles area will be in the stands for this one and you will not
want to miss out when the rivalry is renewed with a PAC 12 South championship on the line. There are plenty of other great
home games including match ups against Memphis, Utah, Arizona, and Stanford. Be sure to get your tickets to any or all of
these great games from StubHub early while you can still choose from some of the best seats in the house.
Last season the UCLA Bruins finished second in the PAC 12 South and this year they appear poised to make another
serious run for the division and conference championship. The team has been on a major upswing since Jim Mora took over and
2104 could be the year that the Bruins and their fans have been waiting for. The offense should be humming under new coordinator
Noel Mazzone, especially with key returners like tight end Joseph Fauria and running back Johnathan Franklin. The defense
should once again be formidable especially if Joseph Fauria, Patrick Larimore, Datone Jones, and others can play as well as
they did last season.
The level of enthusiasm and passion that surrounds UCLA Bruins football
is unlike anything found at the professional level. Cheering for your alma mater or favorite school and watching the student
athletes lay it all on the line for school pride and a shot at playing at the next level is one of the most intense feelings
in all of sports. College football fans plan their entire Saturday to celebrate everything that comes with the game. These
hard core fans get up early and head off to the stadium parking lot for tailgating before the game. Once inside the stadium,
fans join together to make as much noise as possible and help the home team leave with a victory. It is incredibly thrilling
to be in the crowd when the star player takes the ball into the end zone for a big win. When you head out for a UCLA Bruins
football game you are sure to experience all of the excitement that comes with a top tier college football game. The parking
lot at the Rose Bowl will be filled with people gearing up for the big game, grilling up some grub and sipping on a few beverages
as well. It's all one big lead up to the main event, which is the game itself. There is simply no better way to spend a day
off than at a college football game cheering and celebrating with thousands of other hard core fans.
PAC 12 Football
The Bruins play in the PAC 12 conference which is annually one of the top conferences in all of football.
One of the things that makes the PAC 12 so special is that each of the schools who were members of the PAC 10 have in-state
rivals with whom they engage in bitter battles each season. Teams like UCLA, Oregon, Stanford, and USC are the traditional
powerhouses in the conference but all of the other schools in the conference are capable of pulling off big upsets and seemingly
coming from out of nowhere to win their division as Arizona State did in 2013 when they emerged as the champions of the PAC
12 South. If you are looking to see some of the best college football games of the year featuring athletes competing at the
highest level you have come to the right place in the PAC 12.
The UCLA Bruins have been playing
football since 1919 and over the years they have produced a Heisman Trophy winner in Gary Beban, and won one national championship,
two division titles, and 17 conference titles. In 2011 and 2012 the Bruins won the PAC 12 South and played in back to back
PAC 12 championship games but could not make it back for a third consecutive year in 2013 after finishing second in the division
behind Arizona State.
