Pac-12 college football fans can watch one of the biggest games on the conference schedule live online when Number Nine UCLA travels to Arizona Saturday night to face the 16th-ranked Wildcats in the conference opener for both schools — a game that features two undefeated teams, each coming into the crucial matchup at 3-0.
UCLA barely escaped with a 24-23 win over Number 22 BYU last Saturday as true freshman quarterback Josh Rosen, the nation’s top quarterback recruit coming out of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California, struggled. Rosen threw for just 106 yards, connecting on fewer than half of his pass attempts (11-23) while coughing up three interceptions.
But Rosen, at just 18 years old, now faces the brightest spotlight of his young life as he must lead the Bruins into Arizona Stadium in a nationally televised Saturday night Pac-12 rivalry game.
To find out how to watch the UCLA vs. Arizona college football game live online, see the streaming information in the final paragraph of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 5 p.m. Pacific Time, 8 p.m. Eastern, at 57,000-seat Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Arizona, on Saturday, September 26.
The Arizona offense comes into the crucial conference matchup averaging 54 points per game, good for third in the nation, over its first three contests. But all three of the Wildcats’ lopsided wins have come against unranked and unheralded opposition.
But Arizona Coach Rich Rodriguez believes his team will be prepared for the challenge of the ninth-ranked team in the nation when the Bruins roll into Tucson.
“All the games are big, as I told the team, but you can sense or feel the big-game feel on campus this week, whether I want to preach or not, it is going to be there… There will be a lot of buzz about it all week. It is a division game against a highly ranked and undefeated team. Our guys came to Arizona to play in these big games and they get a chance to do it on Saturday.”
As if the atmosphere was not already electric there, ESPN College Gameday will broadcast from the Arizona campus on Saturday as well.
Will UCLA get another boost in the national rankings by winning their Pac-12 opener? Or can Arizona pull off the upset and stake their own claim to a College Football Playoff berth.
