    This will be another huge test for the Utes. I'm glad they have them at home however I just hope that people will actually show up to cheer them on.

    I would love to see them get a victory over one of these good teams. Hopefully they can keep it close and put themselves into position to win it. I think their defense can slow down UCLA along with some good elevation but they will need guys to step up on offense to keep up UCLA's freshmen.

    Go Utes!

    A team that lost at home to Cal Poly is certainly capable of losing to Utah.

    The Bruins are a decent, but not a great 3-point shooting team.

    If UCLA can hit some early 3s, it'll open the middle and Utah's chances of pulling the upset will be slim.

    This will be a good game and great test for this team. If the Utes bring the same intensity they have had the last 2 games on D and can shoot just a bit better (in the HC), they'll win.

    Go Utes!

    I'm excited for this one. It's UCLA's first true road game of the season, so hopefully that throws off their shooting a little bit. It willll be a solid test for our D either way though.

    This will be a good test for the Utes to see if they can not only play good enough defense, but also score enough to beat a good team like UCLA.

    These are the types of games the Utes have to win if they're going to finish above .500 this season.
