PASADENA – UCLA is expected to start quarterback Chase Griffin tonight against Arizona.
Griffin made his first college start at Autzen Stadium last week against then number. 11 Oregon.
Dorian Thompson-Robinson stays out due to contact tracing of the corona virus.
Griffin managed to pull off the offense on his debut as a starter, completing 19 of 31 passes for 195 passing yards and one touchdown. He had only three incompleteness in the first half. He also had three of the Bruins’ four turnovers against Oregon.
“Any turnovers I have in a game are up to me,” Griffin said. “It’s unacceptable in the quarterback position, and every game you play you want to minimize the turnover, not to two, not to one, you want to have zero turnover.”
Griffin’s two interceptions and a fumble were among the four turnovers that turned the Ducks into four touchdowns to secure the 38-35 win.
The Bruins have allowed four turnovers in each of their two defeats this season.
