Colorado completely implodes.
The Bruins could have Michigan transfer Wilton Speight back from injury, but he is not guaranteed the starting job.

If Speight does see the field, he could invigorate a Bruins offense that has not looked comfortable in Chip Kelly’s system.
UCLA needs to get their running game going–their leading rusher, Kazmeir Allen has 161 yards on the season, but 74 of those yards came on one play.
If the offense can’t run the ball, control the clock and more importantly keep their defense off of the field–it could be a long day for the Bruins.
In order to win, the Bruins will need to win the time of possession battle. Colorado has won the time of possession battle in two of their three games this season–the outlier being their first game in which they scored at will against Colorado State.
