Bruins beaten by Kansas State
The UCLA Bruins were unimpressive as they were steamrolled in the second half by the Kansas State Wildcats in the Cactus Bowl.
Chip Kelly will take over the UCLA program for the upcoming season, and will be looking to breath life into a side that folded far too easily.
Kansas State scored 28 unanswered points on their way to a 35-17 triumph at Chase Field in Phoenix.
The Bruins did not play quarterback Josh Rosen, ruled out because of a concussion at the end of the regular campaign, and freshman Devon Modster completed 21-of-34 in his place for 295 yards and two touchdowns. The issue for UCLA was on the other side of the ball as the Bruins allowed 344 yards on 49 carries as Kansas State averaged seven yards per carry.
Wednesday there are a couple of interesting match ups as Arizona takes on a useful Purdue side at the home of the San Francisco 49ers, Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara while the Texas Longhorns and Missouri Tigers clash at the NRG Stadium in Houston. Missouri is an interesting side with Josh Heupel's offense putting up big numbers and earning him the UCF head coaching spot.
Thursday the ranked teams start to appear in the Bowl season with Stanford, #15 in the final Associated Press Top 25 Poll facing off with #13 TCU, #17 Oklahoma State matching up with 22nd ranked Virginia Tech and a potentially entertaining affair between the Michigan State Spartans and the Washington State Cougars, 18th and 21st respectively.
The Alabama are 2.80 to win the NCAAF Championship and Clemson are priced at 3.25.
