Based on the latest College Football Playoff rankings, UCLA looks like it’s on track to play in the Alamo Bowl.
The Bruins dropped seven spots to No. 15 after losing to Stanford last week, but the more notable move happened above. Arizona jumped four spots to No. 7 after clinching the Pac-12 South, and is now positioned to stay in the top 10 even if it loses to Oregon in the conference title game on Friday.
If that happens, the Wildcats would earn a spot in the Fiesta or Cotton Bowl as an at-large selection. The Alamo Bowl would have the next pick out of the Pac-12, and seem likely to pick UCLA over Arizona State and USC given the Bruins’ head-to-head wins. Ninth-ranked Kansas State is the Big 12’s probable candidate for San Antonio, unless it upsets No. 6 Baylor this Saturday.
