UCLA is trending up and USC is trending down

The latest rankings have UCLA at 13 while USC is not even ranked.  The days when USC dominated Southern California look to be over as Brett Hundley and UCLA have looked amazing this season as well as last season.  Head Coach Jim Mora has instilled a mental toughness to this program that was lacking in the past and now has everyone believing that they can win the south division again this season and play in the rose bowl.

With UW playing against Arizona this weekend and looking like the favorites to win, that would allow UCLA to take over first place in the south division of the PAC-12 standings.  I do believe that Utah will be a tough test for the Bruins, but I think that UCLA will handle business and walk away with a Win this weekend.

USC will have their hands full with the ASU passing attack.  Even at 3-1 to start off the season, I can tell you that not many teams in the division are scared of USC.  They are not the terrors they used to be and no longer strike fear in the PAC-12 division.

Glad to have this weekends line up of football games as last weeks line up was pretty lame across the country.

Have a great day everyone

Coach Dan
