The University of Arizona Wildcats versus the University of California Los Angles Bruins
The Rose Bowl, Pasadena, California Noon
UCLA Facts: This is Rick Neuheisel first season at UCLA, just a few years aftering being let go from fellow Pac-10 school Washington. The Bruins play there home games in The Rose Bowl, wich seats 91,000 (one Arizona Stadium and four fifths of another). In 1998 UCLA had a chance to win a title, but since then they have been down, despite the fact they have been bowling several years in a row.
Good Cat News: No one knows how good UCLA is going to be. First year head coach Rick Neuheisel has a history of building programs quickly, but who knows. Arizona also has a chance to be on a nice little roll going into Pasadena, while UCLA has to play two top twenty five teams in BYU and Tennessee. That could very well be good news.
Bad Cat News: One name, Norm Chow. Arizona fans can only hope that he runs out of time or something and doesn't figure out Arizona's d. It's likely the Brunis will be able to put up a lot of points against Arizona. Can Willie T and crew keep up with that? I hope.
