Las Vegas Bowl: Brigham Young vs. UCLA

8 p.m. [ESPN]

The bowl game du jour features sort of an awkward situation. The Bruins (6-6) did so well this season that the school fired the coach, Karl Dorrell, leaving a lame-duck interim, DeWayne Walker, on the sideline for this bowl game. But one of the teams UCLA did beat was BYU, 27-17, in September. The Cougars (10-2) have won their past nine games and, as usual, have a prolific quarterback in Max Hall (more than 3,600 yards, 24 TDs, 12 interceptions). Ravens offensive coordinator Rick Neuheisel is a candidate for the UCLA job.
