“Part of the journey is the end.”
The flagship university of California will end our regular season against the UC Los Angeles Bruins, who are ending their entire season after failing to qualify for a bowl. Hopefully we’ll witness the ends of our two-game losing streak to the Bruins and our four-game losing streak in Westwood.
Also, why won’t Chip Kelly ever wear his school’s colors and embrace the baby blue?
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PT on FS1.
