The Bruins missed their shot for a trip to the Rose Bowl.

After missing its chance to secure a spot in the Rose Bowl, the UCLA Bruins will have to take a wait-and-see approach to find out where and when their next game will be. Their options are between the Holiday and Alamo Bowls.

The Alamo Bowl is typically reserves a spot for the Pac-12's second-best team. But with Oregon likely headed to a BCS bowl, that honor should go to UCLA.

Their opponent will be the Big 12's third-best team, which could either be Oklahoma State, TCU or Texas.

Our expert at SBNation.com has UCLA headed to the Alamo Bowl to take on Oklahoma State. The game, which would take place on Dec. 29, would pit the Bruins against a Cowboys team that is 7-4 entering today's game against Baylor.

Meanwhile, TCU sports a 7-4 record going into its game against Oklahoma today. The Longhorns are 8-3 entering their trip to Kansas State.

if for whatever reason UCLA does not go to the Alamo Bowl, it will be headed to the Holiday Bowl.
