The No. 18 UCLA Bruins will take a trip to Palo Alto this week to take on the No. 15 Stanford Cardinal.

The Bruins are coming out of their bye week, but suffered their first loss of the season the week prior, a 38-23 home defeat at the hands of Arizona State. The Sun Devils jumped out to an early lead and rode senior QB Mike Bercovici (273 yards, 2 TDs) to victory. UCLA QB Josh Rosen completed just 55% of his passes (22 for 40), and the team fell 13 spots in the AP poll from No. 7 to No. 20, although they moved up two spots after the bye week.

Stanford, meanwhile, has won four in a row after dropping its opener to Northwestern. Since managing only 6 points against the Wildcats, the Cardinal averaged over 42 points over their next four games, and won their most recent game in blowout fashion, a 55-17 win over Arizona. Like UCLA, Stanford is coming out of a bye week.

Stanford currently leads the Pac-12 North division, and is 3-0 in conference play. UCLA has a 4-1 record overall, but is 1-1 in the Pac-12 and currently holds the third spot in the Pac-12 South.
