The UCLA Bruins and the USC Trojans will face off in a colorful Pac-12 matchup at the Memorial Coliseum on Saturday. The UCLA quarterback situation has been up in the air recently due to various injuries at the position throughout the past several weeks. Here, we’ll break down all the news on who will start for the Bruins ahead of the crosstown game. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.
Who will start for UCLA today?
Ethan Garbers will reportedly be healthy enough to play against USC on Saturday. Garbers missed last week’s game against Arizona State with a leg injury that he sustained against Arizona earlier this season. Freshman Dante Moore is also dressed for the game in warmups.
