Wrapping up Year 5 with his most talented team to date, Chip Kelly came up just short of reaching the Pac-12 Championship while still having a successful 9-3 season this year.

Heading into the Sun Bowl seemingly at full strength, the Bruins should be able to put up a double-digit win season.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by ‘Locked On UCLA’ host Zach Anderson-Yoxsimer.

They discuss what’s at stake for UCLA, and why it’s in the conference’s best interests to have the Bruins emerge victorious—even more so than other bowl games.

They dive into the details of the game and what sort of challenge Pitt presents for the Bruins down in El Paso.

Perhaps simply enough, UCLA should rely on what got them to this 9-3 position, their two best offensive players: QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson and RB Zach Charbonnet.
