Arizona could face some Big Ten heavyweights in San Diego

NCAA Football: Arizona at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats had their four-game winning streak snapped against the USC Trojans this past weekend, but there is still plenty of reason to be optimistic about the team from Tucson.

Arizona (6-3, 4-2 Pac-12) is already bowl eligible and has three winnable games — vs. Oregon State, at Oregon, at ASU — remaining on its schedule, so there’s still an opportunity to win eight or even nine games this season and make it to a noteworthy bowl game.

And here are the bowl games experts think Arizona could play in:

Foster Farms Bowl (Dec. 27 — Santa Clara, CA)

Holiday Bowl (Dec. 28 — San Diego, CA)

Alamo Bowl (Dec. 29 — San Antonio, TX)

  • CBS (vs. Oklahoma State)

Sun Bowl (Dec. 29 — El Paso, TX)


Pac-12 bowl tie-ins

  1. Alamo Bowl vs. Big 12
  2. Holiday Bowl vs. Big Ten
  3. Foster Farms Bowl vs. Big Ten
  4. Sun Bowl vs. ACC/Notre Dame
  5. Las Vegas Bowl vs. Mountain West
  6. Cactus Bowl vs. Big 12

(Note: The Rose Bowl is a CFP Semifinal game this season so the Pac-12 champion is not automatically eligible for a spot in the game.)
