As the Washington Huskies travel south to the Rose Bowl to face the UCLA Bruins on Friday night, both teams need a victory to keep pace in the Pac-12 conference standings and gain bowl eligibility. Here are three things to watch for in Friday night's matchup.1. Will Brett Hundley finally show up in a game against a good team? He was awfully quiet in UCLA’s only tests this season against Stanford and Oregon. UCLA has not played Washington in several years, so his only marquee conference victory has arguably come against USC last year. He does deserve credit for playing well in victories at Utah and Arizona, but the Bruins need a win tomorrow to keep pace in the Pac-12 South, and with the injuries at running back, Hundley will have to lead the way. As the team’s leading passer and rusher this season with 2,225 and 487 yards respectively, Hundley should be up for the challenge.2. Myles Jack at running back again. It is extremely rare to see two-way players at physically demanding positions such as running back and linebacker, but UCLA freshman Myles Jack may be an exception. With Jordon James out with an injury last game and likely out again on Friday, Jack should have a chance to add to his 120 yards from last week, gained on just six carries. Recruited heavily as a running back, Jack wanted to try playing linebacker and has earned a starting spot this year for the Bruins and played well. Not only is Myles Jack is great player, he also has the coolest name out of any player in this game.3. Bishop Sankey will give the UCLA defense fits. He is one of the leading rushers in the nation with over 1,300 yards and nearly six yards per carry. The UCLA defense is better built to rush the quarterback, as they struggled to slow down Oregon and Stanford’s running games in those losses. With outside linebacker Anthony Barr likely getting after Washington quarterback Keith Price for most of the day, look for the Huskies to try to establish Sankey on the ground.   He rushed for 292 yards and 4 touchdowns against the Oregon and Stanford defenses, so in what should be a closer game against UCLA, he could go over 200 yards for the third time this season.
