    Play like yesterday and this is a close game, play like the first 3 games and UCLA wins big.

    Coming up to see my brothers and bought a ticket for this game before the season started and I thought we'd go in at least 2-1. I think we lose big, but at least it's more interesting now.

    Buffs have to prove they can be consistent. And lets not forget who we just beat, someone that got crushed by BYU and should have lost to UNLV. I will say that Wazzu is better than any of the 3 previous teams we played. I do think it will be a good close game if we can bring it like yesterday though.

    Don't care. The game wasn't even 24 hours ago. Enjoy the win. Worry about UCLA in a day or two.

    UCLA is a much better opponent. And we were lucky to win against Wazzou by one point with the help of blown coverage on a 55 yard TD pass and the safety taking a horrible angle on the 84 yard TD run all in the fourth quarter. This is still the team that lost to Sac State at home.

    You can still enjoy a win while predicting the next game. They aren't mutually exclusive.

    I've been making the prediction threads the Sunday after a game since before you were an Allbuffs member, so shut your pie hole!

    Doesn't matter, still got the W. Teams get breaks, both lucky and unlucky, every week. Not sure why people feel the need to downplay the win. After getting drilled the week before it's impressive that they came out and won on the road

    I think UCLA comes in here pissed off and wipes the floor with us. We have issues in the defensive secondary and our O-Line is a sieve. On top of that, our special teams still suck. UCLA probably overlooked OSU, but they won't make that mistake again.

    Bruins trying to figure out who they are this week. Team that pounded the Corn or the team that lost to the Beavs. Buffs need to take another step forward in confidence to keep his close. I chose CU over fUCLA as a student, and hae NEVER looked back. CU 31, fUCLA 27

    Our running game has shown flashes. Would be nice to see Powell duplicate Brown's performance against UCLA in 2002.

    It does matter, but there's no point in explaining it to you. You rarely listen. And when you do listen, you don't understand.

    Uh huh...

    Just don't see the point in downplaying a road win, which have been few and far between because we played Wazzu. Yeah they're not good but neither are we. We came out, after getting beat by 55, were down for nearly the while game, didn't quit, and won the game.

    Their last 3 games were home games, your last two were away. This has to count for something as should playing at altitude...

    Great to see the effort & heart result in the win, especially after the Fresno pounding. But I'm skeptical that'll be the norm going forward (or at least going into this game against UCLA)

    I just don't think we match up well against UCLA. They have some serious weapons on offense that we don't have an answer for. I'll be simultaneously crying and laughing if we try to cover Joseph Fauria with Terrell Smith again. And even if we don't, we still don't have an answer for him. Hundley is mobile as hell, so that'll be a problem. Not to mention, their NCAA leading rusher Jonathan Franklin could be hard to stop.

    Not as afraid of their defense, but they do have that Barr kid who will probably live in our backfield.
