Kickoff from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA is set for 4:00 ET. After (4-3 SU, 4-3 ATS) Stanford’s 24-23 come from behind victory over visiting Arizona, Cardinal head coach, Jim Harbaugh, again gave credit where credit is due.
“We have three good QB’s,” said Harbaugh, who had to use all of his signal callers Saturday night, and watched an unlikely hero run to victory. Starter, Tavita Pritchard, suffered a concussion in the second quarter, back-up, Jason Forcier didn’t produce, so the Cardinal called upon third-stringer Alex Loukas.
While trailing 23-17, Loukas finished 1/1 for 21-yards and ran for 32-yards during Stanford’s final drive, which was capped off by RB Toby Gerhart’s one-yard plunge with twenty-five seconds left on the clock.
Despite UCLA (2-4 SU, 4-2 ATS) cutting it’s 14-point halftime deficit in half as the fourth-quarter loomed, Oregon’s running attack put the game away with just over two-minutes remaining, giving the Ducks a 31-24 victory last Saturday at Autzen Stadium.
After Ducks Jr. RB LeGarrette Blount scampered for his second score of the day, 69-yards, UCLA and QB Kevin Craft completed a touchdown drive with fifty-five seconds left in the game, but that was all the Bruins had left in the tank.
NCAAF gamblers were pleased however; as UCLA racked up its third consecutive win against the College Football betting line. Though UCLA controlled the clock and the air, the ground bled green; Oregon ran for 323-yards while only allowing 63 to the Bruins ground attack.
At least the Westwood faithful can hang their hats on the past four meetings with Stanford, as UCLA has won each contest, while covering the college football betting line in three of the four victories.
UCLA can even out their conference record with a victory Saturday over Stanford; the Bruins are favored by 2.5-points. For all of your week-eight NCAA football betting needs in and around the PAC-10, make sure to visit Sports-Gambling.com Sportsbook.
