2012 bowl game projections: Alamo Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl on horizon?

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans are projected for upcoming bowl games in December.

By finishing first and second, respectively, in the Pac-12 South, the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans could be headed for bowl games in December.

According to SB Nation's bowl projections, the Bruins are likely to play in the Alamo Bowl against the Oklahoma St. Cowboys, who tied for third place in the Big 12 with the Texas Longhorns. The Trojans, meanwhile, are expected to take part in the Sun Bowl with the N.C. State Wolfpack, who finished third in the ACC Atlantic with a 4-4 record.

In CBSSports' latest bowl projections, UCLA is also slated for the Alamo Bowl, but with the TCU Horned Frogs as the opponent. TCU finished just behind Oklahoma State and Texas in the standings at 4-4. CBSSports also believes USC will not play in the Sun Bowl, but rather in the Las Vegas Bowl against the No. 20 Boise St. Broncos. Boise State finished with a 9-2 overall record and in third place in the Mountain West at 6-1.

While the Trojans will not play again until their bowl game, the Bruins will meet up with the Stanford Cardinal in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Nov. 30.
