No. 9 UCLA will head north to take on the suddenly struggling No. 13 Stanford Cardinal. 

Stanford is coming off a tough loss to Utah in Week 7. That came just a week after the Cardinal narrowly avoided a home upset against the Washington Huskies. 

Things are still on the upswing for the undefeated Bruins. UCLA is off to its best start in years at 5-0, and coach Jim Mora has his team in the national championship picture. However, UCLA hasn't faced an opponent near Stanford's quality yet.

 

When: Saturday, October 19 at 3:30 p.m. ET

Where: Stanford Stadium

TV: ABC/ESPN 2

Spread: Stanford -6 according to Bovada

Top Storyline: Can Stanford Save Its Season?

Just a week ago, the Cardinal were in prime position to make a run at the national championship game. The loss to Utah hurt, but it isn't the end of that dream. Win or lose last week, a Nov. 7 home game against No. 2 Oregon always loomed pivotal.

If the Cardinal can right the ship against UCLA and handle Oregon State next weekend, they will be on the inside track to the Rose Bowl with a win over Oregon. 

To do that, the Cardinal defense is going to have to start playing better.

The defense has looked increasingly vulnerable. The Huskies shredded it during a late comeback, while Utah last week went for over 400 yards while controlling the ball for over five more minutes.

Prediction: UCLA 27, Stanford 20

I don't see Stanford's defense improving against Brett Hundley and the solid UCLA defense. The Bruins have already rushed for over 1,100 yards at an average of 4.8 yards per carry. That attack will help the Bruins wear down the Stanford defense as the Bruins dominate in time of possession.
