I don't think UCLA has any hopes in this game. I think this kind of exposes the Pac 10 as a one team conference, like FSU used to be in the ACC.
Texas plays good hard physical football, especially defensively, and I'm not sure the Trojans have seen anything like that this year. I give Texas a very good chance to beat USC in the Rose Bowl.
I'll also admit to falling for all the hype circulating about UCLA this week. I thought they had a great offense and a solid defense. They may have a decent offense, but, Hell, this is one god awful defensive product they have on the field right now.
