Sports

Love watching Bruins on the field...or the court...or the pool? This weekend offers a cornucopia (sorry) of UCLA athletic events. In chronological order:
  • Wednesday night, the men's basketball team takes on #6 Villanova at Madison Square Garden in the NIT Preseason Tournament semifinals. The game will be televised on ESPN2, and the tournament continues Friday.
  • Friday, our football team goes up against Arizona State. Kickoff is at 12:30 PM. Catch the game on Fox Sports.
  • Starting Friday, the men's water polo team will compete in the MPSF Tournament. The weekend's matches begin at 1:30 PM on Friday against University of the Pacific.
  • Women's volleyball takes on crosstown rivals USC at 5 PM Friday in Pauley Pavilion.
  • Our #13 women's basketball squad will take on Temple at Pauley on Sunday. Tipoff is at 2 PM.
  • And men's soccer continues in the NCAA tournament, going up against Dartmouth in Drake Stadium at 5 PM Sunday.
Alumni Activities

Not in driving distance of Westwood? No worries! The NYC Bruins will gather to watch men's basketball in Madison Square Garden on Wednesday and Friday and host a Thanksgiving Dinner for Twelve Strangers. In Northern California, the Bay Area Bruins will host a football watching party Friday.
