UCLA has not looked sharp this season, losing at Kansas State and home against Stanford. They did win against a ranked Houston team at home, but that does not mean they are on track.
UCLA will head in to Texas to face the Longhorns this weekend. The Longhorns hold a huge crowd advantage.
This game will be strength versus strength. UCLA is averaging over 200 yards on the ground, while Texas is leading the country in rush defense, giving up only 44 yards per game.
Texas definitely has history on its side, as the Longhorns are protecting two streaks in this game. They have a 17-game home winning streak as well as a 17-game regular season out-of-conference win streak.
UCLA needs to throw everything they have at Texas. Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert proved he can be rattled, throwing three interceptions against Texas Tech. UCLA needs to pressure Gilbert.
When Texas has the ball, they need to remain focused to win. Despite throwing three picks, Gilbert still controlled the offense well last week and proved he can stay poised in the pocket.
