— Foster Farms Bowl (@FosterFarmsBowl) December 6, 2015
UCLA will end its season a day after Christmas.
The Bruins (8-4) have been officially picked to play in the Foster Farms Bowl at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, with a 6:15 p.m. kickoff on Dec. 26 set against Nebraska (5-7). This will be UCLA’s third meeting with the Cornhuskers in four years, after sweeping a home-and-home series in 2012 and 2013.
Bowl officials have been high on the Bruins due to the school’s strong alumni presence in the Bay Area, as well as the close proximity that would allow fans in Los Angeles to drive up on the day of the game.
The matchup also pits fourth-year UCLA coach Jim Mora against Mike Riley for the second time. Riley handed Mora his first loss in the college ranks in 2012, when Oregon State defeated the Bruins, 27-20, at the Rose Bowl to open Pac-12 play.
