Coach: Karl Dorrell (3rd year at UCLA)
Team Name: Bruins
2004 Record: 6-6
2004 Pac 10 Conference Record 4-4
2004 ATS Record: 8-3-1
Returning Starters: 15

It has been 2 years on the job for Karl Dorrell and the jury is still out on how good of a coach he truly is. Although the 2004 campaign only produced 6 wins, the Bruins showed improvement from the 2003 team. For this years offensive crew it all starts with the quarter back. UCLA will need to name Ben Olson the starter and stick with him for the long haul. The Bruins figure to score a lot of points this season, as they have an experienced line, and plenty of options at running back and wide receiver. On the other side of the ball the Bruins are stacked at linebacker, but the questions the Bruins have on defense are in front and back of the line backing core. Overall the defense should be solid and one of the better units in the Pac 10. The Bruins have a load of talent on both offense and defense, but how far they go will depend on the development of Ben Olson. With Ben Olson’s progression UCLA could be a major player if not this year, the year after. We are predicting 8 wins and a bowl bid invitation to a minor bowl.
