UCLA under consideration for BCS bowl

Ezra Shaw

The BCS announced on Tuesday that UCLA is under consideration for a bowl game even if they don't win the Pac-12 title.

The Bowl Championship Series listed the UCLA Bruins as a team under consideration for one of the five BCS bowl games, the BCS announced on Tuesday.

The champions of the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC all automatically qualify for a BCS game. The highest-ranked conference champion from the CUSA, Mid-American, Mountain West, Sun Belt and WAC also earn a bid if they are ranked higher than No. 13 in the BCS rankings.

UCLA sits on top of the Pac-12 South with a 6-2 record. Even if they do not win the Pac-12 championship, they are still in consideration for one of the five BCS bowls. No conference is allowed to place more than two teams in the BCS games, and the Bruins are competing with Oregon, Stanford and Oregon State.

UCLA's title opponent isn't quite known yet, as Stanford and Oregon are tied at 7-1 on top of the Pac-12 North standings. Stanford finishes the season against the Bruins and Oregon plays Oregon State in the Civil War.
