UCLA coach Jim Mora hinted at there being some changes to the offense this week, but those changes turned out to be a massive overhaul. The Bruins look like Noel Mazzone is back running the offense -- shotgun, up-tempo, four wide receivers – and, so far, it's working. The Bruins moved the ball with ease on three straight touchdown drives. Utah clearly wasn't ready for this, so it will be interesting to see what type of adjustments it can make to account for the change in scheme.

Here is the Cubs' Game 6 lineup against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw: 1. Fowler CF; 2. Bryant 3B; 3. Rizzo 1B; 4. Zobrist LF; 5. Baez 2B; 6. Contreras C; 7. Russell SS; 8. Almora RF; Hendricks P. Obviously the headliner here is Almora in for Heyward in right.

UCLA backup QB Mike Fafaul again started for the Bruins. Coach Jim Mora was hopeful earlier this week that Josh Rosen would play, but it was clear during pregame warm-ups that Fafaul would get his second start. Rosen suffered upper and lower-body injuries two weeks ago against Arizona State.

The Dodgers team buses just pulled up to Wrigley Field. Can they stave off elimination?

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

UCLA backup QB Mike Fafaul took all the snaps with the offense in pregame warm-ups. Josh Rosen did not take any. The Bruins do not plan to make an official announcement about who will start at quarterback, but, at this point, it would be a shock if it is not Fafaul.

It's a festive atmosphere already outside the confines of Wrigley Field.
