The key to this game will be how UCLA defends the Washington State passing attack. If Washington State can keep their offense rolling like they have been in recent weeks, UCLA will have their hands full in this one. Even though Washington State is on the road, I think they will have keep this game close and may have a chance to win it at the end. I am taking Washington State.
