UCLA vs. Nebraska the Pac-12 game of the week

Big game of the week is UCLA vs. Nebraska. Who are you liking in this game?

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

Sean Reynolds, Block U: I think UCLA wins.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: The Huskers really struggled with Wyoming in their opening week, but this one is on the road, and starts at 9 a.m. pacific time I believe, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Bruins get off to a slow start. Still, I like the Bruins as Brett Hundley looks like he is going to be an unstoppable force and Pac-12 teams have done really well recently against Big Ten offense that like to keep the ball on the ground.

Trevor Wong, Conquest Chronicles: Nebraska's young defense will certainly be challenged from a UCLA offense that put up 58 points and 647 total yards in Week 1. Remember: this Bruins team put up 653 total yards in last year's win over the Cornhuskers, led by Brett Hundley's 305 yards through the air and four touchdowns. Can Taylor Martinez match Hundley and can Nebraska get enough stops on defense? I feel this will be a close one, but the Bruins pull this one out on the road.

Patrick Flower, Pacific Takes: Tough to gauge this one but I like the Bruins chances in Lincoln. UCLA has a highly potent offense that will test the Nebraska. The Cornhuskers looked shaky against Wyoming and make that was just first game jitters. We will learn a lot about both teams this Saturday. Both teams have electric QBs running their offense but I think UCLA's defensive playmakers will make the difference and will the Bruins to victory.

Phil Fraser, Ralphie Report: UCLA, mostly because I absolutely hate Taylor Martinez and all of Nebraska as a whole. It's curious to continue to see the Blackshirts backslide under purported defensive genius Bo Pelini, and I think Hundley goes HAM.

Jason Bartel, AZ Desert Swarm: Emotional week this week in Westwood. I think they rally up and take down the Huskers. Close game, sure, but they've proven under Mora that they win these types of games.
