UCLA is working through a bye week, which is a balancing act for Coach Jim Mora.
The Bruins face Arizona State, the Pac-12’s South Division leader, on Oct. 27. Arizona State plays second-ranked Oregon on Thursday.
The danger with the extra week, Mora said, is, “You don’t want them getting stale, talking about Arizona State too soon. You plant the seeds in their mind. I’m sure they will all be watching the game on Thursday night.”
