Bears go on a Holiday
Facing off against the Bears will be the UCLA Bruins, the second place team from the UCLA. The Bruins (9-4, 6-3) lost their last two games of the year against Stanford, with the second being in the Pac-12 Championship game. While the Bruins are on a 2-game losing streak, the Baylor Bears (7-5, 4-5) won four of their last five games, including the last three games of the season.
"It is very exciting to be going to a bowl game for the third straight year and the Holiday Bowl is widely recognized as one of the best in terms of hospitality, student-athlete experience and atmosphere," said Ian McCaw, Baylor's Director of Athletics. "We need Baylor Nation to rise up and support the Bears by contacting the athletic ticket office to make arrangements to purchase tickets and come to San Diego to be a part of this special event. This is Baylor's first out-of-state bowl game in 20 years, so it is imperative that we have a great turnout to cheer on the Bears against UCLA."
The Bears and Bruins will both be making their debuts in the Holiday Bowl and against each other. The game will be televised on ESPN at 8:45 p.m. CST.
