Welp, with basically no notice, we’ll be opening the season with a road trip to SoCal! After our game against Arizona State and their game against Utah were cancelled due to positive COVID tests, this contest between UCs was thrown together at the last minute.
UC L.A. wasn’t on our latest football schedule, so this gives us the opportunity to continue our streak of games against them—otherwise we would have snapped our streak of games that started in 1933. This will be our 91st meeting, with the Baby Bears leading the series 54–34–1 (with a forfeited and a vacated game in there, which is why the numbers don’t add up).
UC Los Angeles is 0–1 on the season, losing their opener to Colorado last week, 48–42.
Use this thread to comment on the game and also join in on our livestream if you’ve ever wondered what Rob’s bedhead looks like.
Kick-off is scheduled for 9 a.m. PT on FS1. But at this rate, something’s probably gonna happen between now and then and the game will be cancelled. Thanks, world! I’ve told y’all that life sucks and none of you believed me.
That's disappointing to give up a TD to such a one-dimensional offense.

this is not the garbers we are used to seeing
Nice run from Garbers
Our Bears just had to get used to the SoCal time zone. LOL
DTR truly is a dual threat QB - he can throw picks AND he can fumble
This is an absolute shitshow in all phases.
yikes, garbers picked off a tip
Yikes: UCLA QB DTR is 10/18 for 163 yards passing, 2 TD, 1 INT and 44 yards on the ground on 9 carries and 1 rushing TD
Wake up, offense!!
what an easy td for ucla :(
oh my goodness
Dang, UCLA is having the best time running against us in this drive
I understand this is the first game, but this is ridiculous
Garber runs for TDs are always the best
These announcers suck, obviously chase knew it was a free play
Missed tackles spotted the Bruins 14 points and dropped passes cost us at least 2 first downs. All this is self inflicted.
Guys, we might suck
Keepin it real: cal football is like crack for me. Most of the time, I'm messed up in the head bc of it, but that high when things go well. Woooooo
Wow, this is getting ugly. Our tackling is all arms.
Looks like a team that hasn't played in 11 months, playing an unknown opponent on an unknown special.
its as if this defense has been quarantining for the last couple weeks or something
Well this sucks. The tackling is very Sonny Dykes like
We need to stop the run and challenge dtr to beat us on the pass. Trust our dbs
WTF was that tackling?!
Blerg offense... Also, these announcers suck. Brady Quinn should go back to the studio.
Hey everyone. Nice start to the season. This is my ideal kickoff time as an east coaster. Hope to see some good sustained drives by our offense!
I should be happy that we are playing and the blocked punt and the 3 points but... man we should've had 7 there.
Pick/fumble sixxxxxxx (please)
We’re a joke. Classic Cal Football
This would've been a sack for 20ish yards loss, but can't tackle.
offense is hot garbage. season is fubar. meh
Score doesn't reflect how lopsided the game has been
It might have been better if the game was canceled!
No pass rush whatsoever.
Okay, D. Be Wilcox D.
Chase Motheffin Garbers!
Now THAT'S what we want to see!
Run garbers run!
I was wondering when Chase was gonna run the rock.
How do you run a screen with no lead blockers?
I’m going to resist criticizing anybody else until our offense puts real points up against a defense that gave up 50 last week to a bad CU team. But yes.
Think these announcers are in the bag for UCLA?
That was a hell an INT. Glad it doesn't count.
UCLA just looks faster...
Cal looks totally unprepared to play at all levels.
You know, friend, this is a gahdamn b!tch of a unsatisfactory situation
If this is the whole game I'd seriously consider ranking Cal last in the conference
Well this sucks
