The Texas Longhorns will take on the UCLA Bruins at 7:15 p.m. CT in Arlington, Texas.

The game will break a 3-3 series tie between the teams. The last game came in 2011, when the Longhorns blew out the Bruins 49-20 in Los Angeles behind 488 yards of total offense and four takeaways. On offense, tight end DJ Grant had one of the best games of his career, catching six passes and scoring three touchdowns.

The three previous contests were all resounding wins for UCLA -- the Route 66 in 1997, a win in Los Angeles the next year, and a 34-12 victory in Austin in 2010 that heralded the downfall of the Texas program under former head coach Mack Brown.

UCLA is 2-0 on the season after struggling to close wins against Virginia, 28-20, on the road, and at home against Memphis, 42-35.

The numbers

Rankings and records: UCLA is ranked No. 12 in both the AP and Coaches polls. Texas is not ranked in either poll. The Bruins are 2-0 this season, while the Longhorns are 1-1. The all-time series between the two schools is tied at 3-3.

Vegas: UCLA opened as a 6-point favorite. The line has since moved to 7.5.

Weather forecast: 74 degrees and cloudy.

Two things at stake

The Longhorns are looking to avoid embarrassment for the second straight week and prove that the team can show a greater level of intensity on the field after head coach Charlie Strong said his team wasn't ready to play against BYU.

For the Bruins, there's still a potential playoff spot at stake, as well as the potential Heisman candidacy of junior quarterback Brett Hundley. After two underwhelming performances, UCLA wants to prove that they are more than an impressive team on paper and can win games with the ease that the overall talent level would indicate is possible.

One key matchup

UCLA front seven vs. the Texas offensive line. The Texas offensive line now has 10 starts after entering the game against BYU with only five. So the good news is that the group is now basically twice as experienced as it was when the game kicked off in Austin against the Cougars. The bad news is that the group missed numerous blocks last week and generally failed to create any push with a limited gameplan.

The UCLA front seven features three five-star returnees and five more former four-star recruits, so there's a great deal of talent along the defensive line and at linebacker, where senior Eric Kendricks has been making plays with a forced fumble and interception returned for a touchdown, while sophomore Myles Jack has been his typical rangy self.

If the Horns can't manage to get some push, the running game will look as broken as it did against BYU and sophomore quarterback Tyrone Swoopes will face long down-and-distance situations all night.
