Last year, UCLA went 51-17. The Bruins went 2-1 against the Beavers in 2010.
This season, UCLA began the season 7-2 before dropping five of their next six games. That stretch dropped the Bruins out of the polls, but they slowly climbed their way back in after big Pac-10 series wins against USC, Washington, Washington State, and Arizona. If the season ended today, UCLA would likely be a 2 Seed in the NCAA Tournament.
The weather is is expected to be great for the duration of the game.
