The No. 4 UCLA Bruins haven’t been afraid to test themselves in non-conference play this season, but they likely didn’t expect to have to battle the elements as well as an issue with the team plane has pushed back today’s scheduled contest against Marquette.
UCLA vs. Marquette was originally scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET, but that will now be 9:30 p.m. ET. That’s 8:30 p.m. local time in Milwaukee, and because of it the broadcast will move from Fox to FS2.

Due to an issue with UCLA's aircraft on Friday, the team's travel plans were altered.

The flight was originally scheduled to get in last night, but was diverted to Denver. And as of this writing, the Bruins still haven’t left the ground in Colorado.
That means no walkthrough at Fiserv Forum before today’s game for the visitors, but for most teams that just gives you something to do when you land. You can figure out how the shooting background looks in warm-ups just as easily.
Despite the issues, the line has moved in favor of UCLA at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Bruins opened as 5.5-point favorites, but have already been bet up to -7.
