    The Bruins Take on the Aggies in Hostile Territory

    For those people who were impressed by the way UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen performed last season, you may not have seen anything yet. Rosen, who came to Westwood with a lot of ballyhoo and did not disappoint, comes back for his sophomore season as his Bruins take the field against the Texas A&M Aggies in a game that will begin at 3:30 PM ET on Saturday at KyleFfield in College Station. Please keep in mind that if you are a customer at Chinese Bookie, you can keep the action going even after the opening kickoff, as you take advantage of the state-of-the-art software provided through Live Betting Ultra.

    UCLA vs Texas A&M – College Football BETTING LINE:

    In the college football odds posted on this game by the people at Chinese Bookie, the Aggies are the slight favorites at home:

    UCLA Bruins +3
    Texas A&M Aggies -3
    Over 56 points -110
    Under 56 points -110


    UCLA finished with an 8-5 record last season, losing to Nebraska 37-29 in the Foster Farms Bowl. But obviously, a highlight was the play of Rosen, who as a true freshman came in and threw for 3668 yards with 23 touchdowns. UCLA is going to more of a pro-style offensive system this season, as Kennedy Polamalu takes over as coordinator, after three years as the running backs coach. This obviously helps Rosen’s pro prospects, but the question is how will it affect the Bruins in the short run?

    Texas A&M doesn’t have a new system, necessarily, but they do have a new offensive coordinator, and guess what? He’s the guy who held that position for UCLA last year. Noel Mazzone comes to College Station, and he’ll be working with a new quarterback, Oklahoma transfer Trevor Knight.

    Texas A&M, which competes in the Southeastern Conference, employed two blue-chip quarterbacks last season – Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray – both of whom transferred. Knight comes here with 15 career starts and a 57% accuracy rate, and he knows hwo to run an up-tempo offense. Obviously, Mazzone, who called the plays for UCLA the last four seasons, is going to try to increase that.

    In the last 16 seasons, A&M has had only two running backs rush for at least 1000 yards, and another Oklahoma transfer will try to change that. He is junior Keith Ford, who was a highly-touted recruit a few years ago and rushed for 5.8 yards per carry with the Sooners as a true freshman. There is a load of talent at the receiver positions, and we imagine that the UCLA secondary, which has three seniors and a junior, will be challenged by the combination Kevin Sumlin throws out there, which includes Speedy Noil, Christian Kirk, Josh Reynolds and Ricky Seals-Jones.

    Of course, Chinese Bookie patrons are well aware, or should be, of the effect of Texas A&M’s hiring of Mazzone. Certainly, UCLA is not going to be surprised at the offensive approach from the Aggies, and at the same time, Mazzone is very familiar with most of the defensive personnel UCLA has. One guy who will not be on the field for the Bruins, and who will be missed, is Myles Jack, who got hurt last season and held out for the NFL draft (second-round pick by Jacksonville), but otherwise would have been on the stop unit and a viable All-America candidate. That having been said, almost all of the leading tacklers return for Jim Mora Jr., with five defensive starters from last season back on campus.
