The USC Trojans (5-1), 24-14 winners on Saturday over the Washington Huskies, are currently being projected to win the remainder of their games this season and face the Alabama Crimson Tide in the BCS National Championship Game.
Jerry Palm of CBS Sports is predicting the Trojans move into the No. 2 slot in the BCS rankings by year's end by winning all of their contests, with no other major title contender remaining undefeated by season's end. The BCS title game will be played on Jan. 7, 2013, at 5:30 p.m. PT, in Miami.
The UCLA Bruins (5-2), 21-14 winners over the Utah Utes over the weekend, are being slated for the Sun Bowl, played in El Paso, Texas on Dec. 31, 2012. The Sun Bowl pits the ACC's No. 4 team against the Pac-12's No. 4 team, with the projection in this case showing Al Golden's Miami Hurricanes taking on the Bruins.
UCLA has a bye this weekend, while USC will host the woeful Colorado Buffaloes at Los Angeles Coliseum.
