ESPN is projecting two different bowl scenarios for UCLA and USC.

In the Week 9 bowl projections, ESPN is predicting two different scenarios each for UCLA and USC this bowl season.

The Bruins are projected to either play Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl or Navy in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

UCLA is coming off a 45-43 win over Arizona State that improved them to 6-2 overall and 3-2 in conference play.

The Trojans are projected to either play Texas Tech in the Valero Alamo Bowl or Texas in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl.

Arizona defeated USC, 39-36, on Saturday to drop the Trojans to 6-2 on the season overall and 4-2 in the Pac-12. The loss dropped USC to No. 17 in the BCS standings and 18th in the AP poll heading into their game versus No. 4 Oregon this Saturday.
