UCLA Completes 2002 Football Schedule
Feb. 24, 2001
UCLA announced today that it will open the 2002 schedule on Sept. 7 with a home game against Colorado State. In 2000, the Rams compiled a record of 10-2 and were ranked No. 14 on the final Associated Press poll.
UCLA had an opening because of Missouri's decision to default on a home-and-home series scheduled for 2001 and 2002, despite a signed contract between the two schools. Last September, UCLA filled the hole in the 2001 schedule with a road game at Kansas.
The Bruins will open the 2001 schedule on Sept. 1, traveling to Alabama, and will play at Kansas the following week. They will play the first of five home games on Sept. 15 against Arizona State and will host Ohio State the following Saturday.
In 2002 and 2003, the Bruins will play 12-game schedules with six home games and six road games. In 2002, UCLA's four non-conference games include Colorado State and Colorado at home and Oklahoma State and San Diego State on the road. In 2003, the Bruins face Colorado and defending national champion Oklahoma on the road and host Illinois and San Diego State.
Oklahoma will make a trip to the Rose Bowl in 2005 (Sept. 17) as will BYU (Sept. 10). In 2006, UCLA will travel to Notre Dame and the Fighting Irish will visit the Rose Bowl in 2007 (Oct. 6).
