When UCLA plays Arizona State on Saturday, the outcome will go a long way toward determining which team is a true challenger to favored USC in the Pac-12 South.
The Bruins (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) already have an ugly road loss at California. A victory on Saturday would put UCLA back into contention with three of its final four games at home, capped by visits from Stanford and USC.
Arizona State (5-2, 3-1) must regroup from its debacle at home against No. 2 Oregon, a loss far more one-sided than the 43-21 score would indicate. A victory over the Bruins could be essential for the Sun Devils to remain relevant heading into a pair of tough games at Oregon State and USC.

If there's one positive to take from the NHL lockout, it's that a few Bruins are doing very well overseas. NESN Daily gave us updates on how Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley are doing while the NHL lockout continues.

The Bruins' road to the team's first Stanley Cup in 39 years was not an easy one, but it was certainly memorable.
The first leg of that journey came to a close in Boston, with the B's hoping to beat the Montreal Canadiens in a winner-take-all Game 7. It would be the first of several Game 7's that Boston would face in their quest for the Cup, but there was no way...
First it was Tuukka and his delicate groin. Now Bergeron is questionable for games with an injury, according to Naoko Funayama.
Patrice Bergeron (HC Lugano) has upperbody injury. Day-to-day. Missed last game but practiced today. Questionable for tomorrow's game.

Hartford, CT, October 27, 2012 - Despite being outshot 40-23, the Connecticut Whale defeated the Providence Bruins 6-3 Saturday night at the XL Center.
