Arizona Vs. UCLA: Wildcats open as 3-point underdogs

Both the Wildcats and the Bruins will want to continue the momentum built from big wins on Saturday when they face one another in their next Pac-12 contest.

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The Arizona Wildcats and the UCLA Bruins are both coming off huge wins within conference on last Saturday and will face off against one another this weekend in another big game for both teams.

The Bruins open as 3-point favorites over the Wildcats but that may just be respect to the Bruins' overall season and not necessarily how well both teams are playing right now.

The Bruins are coming off a 45-43 win over the Arizona St. Sun Devils that took a last-second field goal to pull out. The Wildcats are coming off a 39-36 upset over the USC Trojans that showed the nation that the Wildcats' offense can play with anybody.

Two teams playing with plenty of momentum. The Bruins are 6-2 overall, 3-2 in the Pac-12 and the Wildcats are 5-3 overall, 2-3 in the Pac-12. A 3-point margin seems about right with these two teams coming in hot. If neither team has a letdown from last week, the Pac-12 could be in for another epic matchup.
