2012 bowl projections: UCLA could play Texas Tech in Holiday Bowl

Rick Scuteri-US PRESSWIRE

CBS Sports currently envisions the Bruins playing the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Holiday Bowl two days after Christmas.

The UCLA Bruins are currently projected to face Texas Tech in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 in San Diego, California, according to CBS Sports.

Texas Tech is at No. 18 in the BCS rankings after they were pounded by Kansas State, 55-24, Saturday for their second loss of the season. The Red Raiders have been quite impressive offensively at times this season though as evidenced by their 49-14 win over then No. 5 ranked West Virginia earlier in October.

The Holiday Bowl is usually reserved for the third-best team in the Pac-12 to play the fifth-best team in the Big-12 but CBS has Oregon in the championship game against Alabama which changes plans slightly. With Oregon State going to the Rose Bowl instead and USC settling for the Alamo Bowl, UCLA is boosted up to the Holiday Bowl rather than the Sun Bowl.

Stanford is instead currently slated for the Sun Bowl with Arizona participating in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and Arizona State earning a spot in the New Mexico Bowl.
