Baylor and UCLA matchup in the Holiday Bowl this season. The Big 12-Pac 12 pairing is always one that turns out a great game.
Unlike other mid-tier bowls, the Holiday Bowl has a history dating all the way back to 1978 and includes games that feature players like Steve Young, Jim McMahon, Terrell Suggs and Marshawn Lynch. This year will be no different.
The spot was up in the air all day for Baylor and UCLA. Originally, this game was expected to be a Texas Tech and Oregon State matchup. Once the Alamo Bowl took Oregon State and Northern Illinois earned a BCS bowl berth, the Big 12 slots forced Baylor into this game over Oklahoma State or Texas Tech.
