Cal (0-0) at UCLA (0-1)

When: 9 a.m. Sunday

Where: Rose Bowl, Pasadena

TV/Radio: Fox Sports 1 / 570 AM

Records: UCLA (0-1); Cal (0-0)

UCLA stats:

QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson: 20-40 completions, 303 passing yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT; 9 carries, 109 rushing yards, 1 TD

TE Greg Dulcich: 4 recs., 126 yards, 1 TD

DB Stephan Blaylock: 11 tackles

DB Quentin Lake: 9 tackles, 1 PD

LB Caleb Johnson: 4 tackles, 1 sack

UCLA injury report: OUT: DE Myles Jackson (patella)

UCLA wins if: The Bruins offense limits turnovers, which proved costly last week against Colorado. In order to regroup, the Bruins will have to get the running back group involved after Thompson-Robinson led the team through the air and on the ground.

2019 Cal stats:

QB Chase Garbers: 131-215 completions, 1,772 passing yards, 14 TDs, 3 INTs; 223 rushing yards, 3 TDs

RB Christopher Brown Jr.: 208 carries, 914 rushing yards, 8 TDs; 22 catches, 166 receiving yards, 4 TDs

LB Luony Deng : 119 tackles, 7.5 TFL, 3 sacks, 1 FR

DB Camryn Bynum: 63 tackles, 3 TFL, 1 INT

LB Cameron Goode: 57 tackles, 14 TFL, 9.5 sacks, 1 FF

Cal injury report: N/A

Cal wins if: Christopher Brown Jr. has the same opportunity to capitalize against the UCLA run defense. The Bruins gave up 187 yards and three touchdowns against Colorado’s backup running back last week in the season opener. UCLA may have some opportunities against a returning offensive line that allowed 47 sacks to rank 124th in the country.

Prediction: UCLA 31, Cal 27
