Football: UCLA vs. USC

At press time, Head Coach Chip Kelly hadn’t yet chosen his starting quarterback from several strong candidates, including redshirt sophomore Devon Modster, Michigan transfer Wilton Speight and freshman Dorian Thompson- Robinson. At this point in the season, however, Bruin fans will have a good idea of the caliber of this team. Though the Bruins lost quarterback Josh Rosen and 11 other players — including offensive tackle Kolton Miller, linebacker Kenny Young, offensive lineman Scott Quessenberry and wide receiver Jordan Lasley — there’s opportunity for any of the new recruits to become breakout stars. USC has won this game for the past three years, so it’s time for the Bruins to start their own winning streak.

NOV. 17 / SAT / TBA. Location: Rose Bowl Stadium, Pasadena. Tickets: TBA. Phone: (310) UCLA–WIN. Web:

Women’s Volleyball: UCLA vs. Oregon

UCLA is looking to improve on a 21-11 record last season, despite having reached the third round of the NCAA championships. Aided by the return of six starters, the Bruins will be led by All-Americans Zana Muno, a senior defensive specialist, and junior middle blocker Madeleine Gates. The women defeated Oregon in 2017 and will face them twice this season, once at home and once in Eugene.

OCT. 5 / FRI / 7 P.M.. Location: Pauley Pavilion. Tickets: $10 adult (general admission); $5 youth and military (general admission); free for UCLA students. Phone: (310) UCLA–WIN. Web:

Women’s Soccer: UCLA vs. Arizona

The UCLA women’s soccer team opened the season ranked No. 2 in the United Soccer Coaches’ preseason poll and was also chosen as the preseason No. 2 by the Pac-12 coaches. The NCAA runner-up a year ago, the Bruins also tied for second in the Pac-12 in 2017 with an 8-2-1 conference record. The reason for UCLA’s high ranking? Nine starters are returning from last year’s squad, including first-team All-Americans Jessie Fleming and Hailie Mace.

OCT. 7 / SUN / 3 P.M.. Location: Wallis Annenberg Stadium, UCLA campus. Tickets: $10 adult; $5 children; free for UCLA students. Phone: (310) UCLA–WIN. Web:

Men’s Soccer: UCLA vs. California

With an incoming class ranked the best in the country by national publication Top Drawer Soccer, the future of UCLA men’s soccer looks bright. The class includes four members who have been ranked nationally in the top 20 players for 2018, while five players also have U.S. soccer experience: Justin Garces, AJ Vasquez, Franuel Amaya, Matthew Hundley and Cody Sundquist. UCLA has also added talented junior transfers Mohammad Kamara and Carlos Rincon.

NOV. 1 / THURS / 7 P.M.. Location: Wallis Annenberg Stadium, UCLA campus. Tickets: $10 adult (general admission); $5 youth and military (general admission); free for UCLA students. Phone: (310) UCLA–WIN. Web:

Men’s Water Polo: UCLA vs. Stanford

UCLA men’s water polo is the team to beat after nabbing the NCAA championship last year. The Bruins, however, have had to deal with the holes left when center Matt Farmer and four of their six top scoring players graduated. UCLA will be looking to avenge last year’s loss when Stanford comes to town.

NOV. 3 / SAT / 12 P.M.. Location: Spieker Aquatics Center, UCLA campus. Tickets: free. Phone: (310) UCLA–WIN. Web:
