EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Coach Jim Mora wants to make sure one loss doesn't derail UCLA.
The No. 12 Bruins, coming off a disheartening loss to Stanford, have a chance for redemption — in a big way — against the No. 2 Oregon Ducks this Saturday.
Mora says that so far UCLA's body of work has been good, but it needs to get better by the end of the season to truly see where the Bruins are. The Ducks are part of that process.
But the Bruins (5-1, 2-1 Pac-12) face a considerable challenge in Oregon (7-0, 4-0), which is favored by more than three touchdowns. UCLA has not won at Autzen Stadium since 2004, and the team hasn't defeated the Ducks since a 16-0 blanking in 2007.
