The Pac-12 on Monday announced the Saturday, Oct. 2,  football schedule will be capped by a South Division matchup between the Arizona State Sun Devils and UCLA Bruins.

The Sun Devils and Bruins kick off at 7:30 p.m. at the Rose Bowl in a primetime game airing on FS1.

Both ASU and UCLA are coming off a disappointing loss in the third week of the season. Arizona State fell to the BYU Cougars, who have three wins over Pac-12 teams, dropping the Sun Devils from No. 19 to out of The Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

UCLA’s defeat to Fresno State this past weekend dropped the Bruins from No. 13 in the nation to No. 24.

To begin the year, UCLA defeated Hawaii and the then-No. 16 LSU Tigers. Meanwhile, ASU had wins over Southern Utah and UNLV before suffering the loss to BYU.

Before the ASU-UCLA matchup, the Sun Devils host the Colorado Buffaloes this coming Saturday. The Bruins face the Stanford Cardinal on the road.
