2011 Bowl Projections: UCLA In Line For Alamo Bowl Bid, Wants More

With their decisive win over the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday evening in Pasadena, the UCLA Bruins are now bowl eligible. The only question now is where will the Bruins end up during college football bowl season. Jason Kirk at SB Nation projects UCLA going to the Alamo Bowl on December 29 against the Oklahoma Sooners, but the Bruins still have the Rose Bowl in play.

UCLA (6-5, 5-3) needs a win over the USC Trojans on Saturday night (or losses by both Arizona State and Utah) to win the Pac-12 South Division and secure a spot in the inaugural Pac-12 Championship Game, though the Bruins will likely be heavy underdogs against the No. 10 Trojans. Even if UCLA beats USC, they would then have to win a road game in either Oregon or Stanford to go to their first Rose Bowl in 13 years.

The Bruins have a four-game home winning streak, but have also lost their last three road games by a combined score of 141-37. To secure another home game, on January 2 in the Rose Bowl, they would have to win two road games against two top 10 teams. That would be quite a feat for UCLA.
