UCLA Bruins 2016 Schedule Breakdown

The PAC-12 schedule breakdown tour stays in LA with the Bruins:

9/3 at Texas A&M
9/10 UNLV
9/17 at BYU
9/24 Stanford
10/1 Arizona
10/8 at Arizona State
10/15 at Washington State
10/22 Utah
11/3 at Colorado
11/12 Oregon State
11/19 USC
11/26 at California

Notes: The opener against the Aggies should be a win, but UCLA normally does not win these kinds of games on the road. Edge goes to A&M. The Bruins should then handle UNLV and BYU, although the BYU game is a tough get on the road. I potentially see the Bruins beating Stanford at the Rose Bowl, but being the Cardinal has a solid win streak in the series, I take Stanford there. Looks like the Bruins start of 2-2. 
The Bruins could start off strong in October with wins over Arizona and Arizona State, but I see a shot to lose in Pullman to Washington State. The Utah game should be a tough go, but the Bruins should beat the Utes at home. UCLA looks like a 5-3 team at the end of October. 
The Bruins have a relatively light slate in November, which would be good to get a strong finish going on, something the Bruins did not have last fall. I see a sweep in the final month with wins over Colorado, Oregon State, USC, and California. 
Overall Projected Record: 9-3
