Arizona State (3-0) at No. 15 UCLA (3-1)

* Kickoff: 7:15 p.m. Saturday at the Rose Bowl. Fox Sports Net.

* Story line: The Bruins have lost three consecutive games to the Sun Devils, including a 28-27 defeat last year in which UCLA blew a 14-point halftime lead and lost on a 49-yard screen pass with 23 seconds left. That loss dropped the Bruins to 0-2 in the Pacific 10 Conference and out of the Rose Bowl race, the same fate that will befall the Bruins should they lose Saturday.

* UCLA update: Cory Paus is back at quarterback after missing three weeks because of a separated right shoulder. The UCLA coaches believe they have settled their quarterback situation.

* Arizona State update: Ryan Kealy has been reinstated to the team after a suspension, but Sun Devil coaches have yet to settle their quarterback situation, insisting redshirt freshman Jeff Krohn could start ahead of Kealy, a senior who has passed for more than 6,000 career yards.

* Edge to UCLA: Cory will be the Paus that refreshes.

* Line: UCLA by 8.
