Utah (2-3, 0-2) at UCLA (4-2, 1-2)
SATURDAY, 1 p.m. MDT
Rose Bowl (91,500)
Grass, Pasadena, Calif.
Weather: 71 degrees, mostly sunny
For Utah ... Like the Bruins, the Utes are trying to avoid a third loss in Pac-12 play. With a road game at Oregon State next week, a victory would be especially welcome.
For UCLA ... The Bruins are looking to regain lost momentum after falling from the top 25 last week. Another setback would put their division title hopes in jeopardy.
For Utah ... The Utes have won the past two meetings — both at Rice-Eccles Stadium (2007, 2011) — by a combined score of 75-12. The Bruins, though, prevailed at the Rose Bowl in 2006 — winning handily, 31-10.
For UCLA ... Last week's 43-17 loss at California was a surprise after the Bruins opened the season with a 4-1 record under new coach Jim Mora. UCLA has won 16 straight when holding opponents under 20 points.
Johnathan Franklin, UCLA: The Pac-12's leading rusher (133.33 ypg) is reportedly "dinged up" with a bruised hand and a calf contusion.
UCLA's offense vs. Utah's defense: The Bruins are averaging 529 yards of total offense per game, 179 more than the Utes' defense is giving up after two uncharacteristically subpar outings.
Utah: OL Vyncent Jones (knee) will not play.
UCLA: WR Darius Bell (shoulder) will not play.
Utah visits Oregon State next Saturday, while UCLA has a bye. The Bruins return to action Oct. 27 at Arizona State.
