The UCLA Bruins put themselves in a good spot to make it to a bowl game with their 31-14 win over Oregon on Saturday at the Rose Bowl.
The Bruins are 4-3 on the season and 2-2 in Pac-12 play. UCLA is also perfect at the Rose Bowl this season, going 4-0 so far with games against Arizona State and California later in the season. The team only needs 2 more wins to become eligible for a bowl game.
ESPN’s most recent bowl projections, which were released Sunday, have the Bruins playing in the inaugural Frisco Bowl, which is played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.
Toyota Stadium, Frisco, Texas

UCLA’s next 2 games are on the road against Washington and Utah. If the Bruins are able to split those 2 games, they would be in a great spot to end the season with more than 6 wins.
