By Kyle Kensing, 4 months 6 days ago
After a dismal, 4-8 finish in the 2016 season, UCLA football needs to bounce back in 2017.

By Athlon Sports, 4 months 2 weeks ago
After winning at least eight games in each of the past four seasons, UCLA cratered to 4-8 in 2016.

By Steven Lassan, 4 months 2 weeks ago
Predictions for any FBS conference and all 130 college football teams are an inexact science.
