Pac-12Chip Kelly and Dorian Thompson-Robinson helped lead the UCLA Bruins to a win over then-15th-ranked Washington, the highest-ranked opponent Kelly’s Bruins have defeated during his tenure.

Now they are home once again facing a Utah team that has long been the favorite to win the Pac-12 in 2022. Can UCLA do it again and stay undefeated?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by ‘Locked On Utes’ host JT Wistrcill.

We look at the most intriguing matchups, both individual and entire units, that will define who walks away with a win on Saturday in Pasadena.

UCLA’s top WR, Jake Bobo, will have his work cut out for him against Utah DB Clark Phillips, who leads the country in interceptions with four—three of which came last week against Oregon State.

My Pac-12 Prime Picks are back for the best bets across the conference heading into Week 3 of league play. I’m taking UCLA and the points at home against Utah—and even like them outright.

Oregon State and Washington, both coming off losses on the road, are both away from home once again this week. That shouldn’t be too much of a concern for either team.
