LOS ANGELES (AP) -- UCLA plans to play its scheduled game against San Diego State at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on Saturday despite the giant wildfire burning to the north in the Angeles National Forest.

Athletic director Dan Guerrero said in a statement Thursday that the decision was made based upon information from local air-quality officials and Pasadena city fire and health authorities.

Guerrero says there were also consultations with the university's own medical staff.

A university statement also quotes an air pollution official as saying that weather conditions are expected to improve on Saturday.
