After a thrilling road win against Arizona, UCLA (16-5, 6-2) relinquished all momentum two days later when it fell in a listless loss to Arizona State.
The Bruins have now returned to Westwood, where they’ll tip off a three-game home stretch with a game on Wednesday night against crosstown rival USC (8-13, 3-5). This is a must-win game for the Bruins after their inconsistent display in Arizona.
UCLA is the favorite in this rivalry game, but nothing is guaranteed for this Bruins team, which was also favored to beat Arizona State after a strong performance against No. 6 Arizona.
