It's not exactly a fall classic

October 04, 2008

Two first-year-on-the-job coaches, two struggling football teams. Someone will feel a little better. What to look for in tonight's game:

Big O or little d: UCLA's newfound running game faces a defense that's about as bad as it gets.

Quite a spread: Bruins, outscored 90-10 in two of their losses, are a big favorite in this one.

Game time: Washington State will try to repeat the ball control it enjoyed in last year's victory over UCLA.

The quarterbacks: Bruins junior Kevin Craft, in his fifth game as starter, is the wily veteran in this game.

Storm warnings: Cougars can always pray for rain -- and they might get it.

History lesson: Washington State is right at home at the Rose Bowl.
