Earliest Cash - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach CFB Rotation #233 Saturday 10* Top Play OVER the total in UCLA Bruins vs California Golden Bears @ Noon ET - This one follows the similar analytics we used with yesterday's totals play which was the Colorado over. California is known for defense and their last dozen games at UCLA have resulted in 8 unders. That's a 67% win rate for unders long-term but that was then and this is now. The Bruins play extremely fast and their game at Colorado last week totaled 90 points! The Golden Bears personnel losses were significant on the defensive side of the ball as they lost 3 guys to the NFL. That is some big-time talent to have departed the defense. On offense, California returns nearly everyone and they surged late last season and looked stronger on offense in their last 5 games (including bowl game) to wrap up the season. Now they also have a new offensive coordinator on board this season and Bill Musgrave has been an offensive coordinator in the NFL and had some great turnaround success in some of his stops. You know he'll be itching to put on a good show right out of the gate and here he has the perfect set-up. He is going against one of the worst defenses in the nation and plus the Bruins offense plays so fast that the Golden Bears offense will get plenty of opportunities on the field. The fact this is a game that was oddly scheduled actually helps the offenses in my opinion. UCLA had their defense preparing to face Utah while the Bears had been preparing to face Arizona State. Then, due to covid issues those games were cancelled for Saturday and now these teams face off early Sunday in an oddly scheduled game. Don't let the early start time concern you either though. Last Saturday USC kicked off the Pac-12 season with a  9 AM Pacific time start versus Arizona State and the game had 31 points in the first half. These teams both will enjoy plenty of success early, often, and throughout this game. Beautiful weather expected for this one too. 10* OVER the total in UCLA
