UCLA Football Gets Another Night’s Game at the Rose Bowl

PASADENA – The stakes are high in Saturday night’s Pac-12 South game. Although it’s still early in the season and both teams still have common rivals like USC and Utah left on schedules that could shake up the division standings, the winner has a lot to gain.

This season both the Trojans and the Utes seem to be “down” but each team has won the division twice in the past four years.

What can be taken away from Saturday’s game is an advantage in the event of a potential tie-breaking situation.

UCLA will play in Arizona, with ASU another common rival, for the next week straight starting at 7:30 p.m. PT (10:30 p.m. ET). Arizona has lost its last 16 games, but a late start is no good for the Bruins, who may have the opportunity to display an impressive performance that few see, especially on the East Coast.

Pac-12 football teams already know the date and location of the games when the schedule is released, but the start times of the games are announced approximately two weeks due to the selection process by the televised rights holders.

For what it’s worth, the Bruins’ conference-debut victory at Stanford was broadcast on the Pac-12 network but the channel is unplayable for some viewers.

Coach Chip Kelly told the media last week that he would like to play during the day, much like kickoff time against Stanford at 3 p.m., but he knows his team will “play in the parking lot” or “2 a.m.”. ready for. “

The Bruins began the season with a three-game non-conference homestand before traveling for the first road game against the Cardinals.

Each game during that homestand had a later start time than the next, including the Hawaiian at 12:30 p.m. PT, the primetime game with LSU at 5:30 p.m. PT and the Pac-12 after dark game against Fresno State. started.

“I don’t like playing sports at night because then I have to sit all day,” Kelly said. “I wish we could play at 9 in the morning”

Tight end Greg Dulcich uses the extended time to do extra drag, if needed, or just stay off his feet and watch some of the other sports taking place across the country.

“It’s not something we’re really worried about when we’ve started late,” Dulcich said. “It gives us more time to prepare.”

Kelly believes that late start times can affect a variety of situations, including recruiting and post-season awards.
