No. 24 Arizona State looks to bounce back at UCLA
No. 24 Arizona State (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) at UCLA (2-5, 2-2), Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EDT (Pac-12 Network).
Line: Arizona State by 3 1/2.
Series record: UCLA leads 20-14-1.
WHAT'S AT STAKE?
Arizona State can get bowl eligible with a win but is looking to bounce back after a 21-3 loss at No. 12 Utah last Saturday. UCLA has lost four straight at home but is coming off a 34-16 victory at Stanford on Oct. 17 that was its best game in all three phases. It is also a matchup of two of the youngest teams in the nation. UCLA's roster is 52.8% freshmen — second-most in FBS — to Arizona State's 52.5%, which is fourth.
Arizona State QB Jayden Daniels vs. UCLA's front seven. Daniels leads the conference in yards per completion (14.22) but looked very much like a freshman last week as Utah held him to 4-of-18 passing for 25 yards. The Bruins recorded seven sacks against Stanford, which was the most since the 2015 Alamo Bowl against Kansas State.
PLAYERS TO WATCH:
Arizona State: RB Eno Benjamin is fourth in the conference with 633 yards and has three straight 100-yard games. The junior has forced 42 missed tackles, which is tied for 11th nationally among running backs.
UCLA: WR Kyle Philips has become one of Dorian Thompson-Robinson's favorite targets. He has 23 receptions in the past three games, including 10 against Stanford.
