Welcome back to Bruins Nation’s opponent preview series for the 2019 UCLA Bruins football season! We are taking a look at an upcoming opponent this year, examining their strengths and weaknesses, and making a bold prediction regarding the outcome.
It’s time to take a look at UCLA’s twelfth opponent: the UC Berkeley Golden Bears.
Honestly, I don’t do this a lot, but I do want to give a lot of sincere credit to UC Berkeley head coach Justin Wilcox. Part of this has to do with the low expectations I had for the former Steve Sarkesian defensive coordinator, but I didn’t think he had what it took to turn the Bears around and he has absolutely exceeded my expectations.
