Washington and the UCLA Bruins will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 10:30 p.m. ET Friday at Rose Bowl. These two teams have set a high bar for this game after stand-out offensive performances in their previous games.

Meanwhile, UCLA turned the game against the Colorado Buffaloes into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 515 yards to 309. The Bruins blew past Colorado 45-17 last week. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point UCLA had established a 38-10 advantage. RB Zach Charbonnet had a stellar game for UCLA as he rushed for three TDs and 104 yards on nine carries.
This next matchup is expected to be close, with Washington going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (3-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.
