UCLA to Host California in Final Pac-12 Season Game at Rose Bowl Saturday

UCLA, boasting a winning record in 19 of its last 27 games, is set to host California at the Rose Bowl Stadium this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.. The game will also serve as a tribute to UCLA’s senior student-athletes.

This marks the end of UCLA’s journey in the Pac-12 season. The university has a long history in the conference, having joined the Pacific Coast Conference (PCC) in 1928 before transitioning to the Athletic Association of Western Universities in 1959 along with Cal, Stanford, USC, and Washington. The association later evolved into the Pac-8 and then the Pac-10, before finally becoming the Pac-12 in 2011.

The Bruins and Golden Bears have a longstanding rivalry, meeting at least once each season since 1933. UCLA has maintained a strong home record over the past two seasons, with a 10-3 record at the Rose Bowl. The Bruins have also dominated recent meetings with Cal, winning five of the last six games.

UCLA has shown impressive stats this season, leading the Pac-12 in several categories including rushing defense, team sacks, team tackles for loss, yards per play allowed, rushing offense, and yards per rush allowed. The Bruins are also tied with Cal for turnovers gained and rank second in passes intercepted. UCLA’s defense has been particularly strong, holding eight of its 11 opponents this season to fewer than 20 points.

The game will be broadcast live by ESPN starting at 7:30 p.m. PT. Fans can also tune in to the Bruin IMG Radio Network, SiriusXM, or the Varsity App for coverage.

Parking lots open at 1:30 p.m. The FanFest starts at 3:15 p.m. Gates open at 6:00 p.m.

For assistance on the day of the event, please call the Rose Bowl Resident Hotline at (626) 397-4141.
