UCLA VS. OREGON Tonight at Eugene, Ore. 7:15, FSN Prime

It's been no traveling party for Bruins

October 11, 2008

Oregon will be looking to continue a few trends against a UCLA team focused on ending a losing streak. What to look for in tonight's game:

Uphill road: UCLA, a loser of 11 of its last 14 on the road, faces an Oregon team that rarely loses in front of its always-raucous home crowd.

Run off: Each of Oregon's top two tailbacks has nearly equaled UCLA's total rushing offense.

Beating the spread: We're not talking betting here, we're talking about the spread offense. And the Ducks run it well no matter who is playing quarterback.

Betting the spread: OK, now we're talking betting -- using the not-very-well-known Cougars Index.

Devils in the details: It's a faceoff between former Diablos as Oregon's Nick Reed opposes UCLA's Jeff Baca.
