After a dramatic win over then No. 9 USC on Oct. 27, Arizona fell to UCLA, 66-10, and are now projected to participate in the Kraft Fight Hunger bowl versus Navy on Dec. 29, according to Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com.

Arizona State lost to Oregon State, 36-26, last Saturday and are projected to play Nevada in the New Mexico bowl.

Both Arizona and Arizona State are 5-4 on the season overall and need one more win to become bowl eligible this season.

Arizona State opened the season with a 5-1 record but has since lost three consecutive games to Oregon, UCLA and Oregon State. The Sun Devils travel to play No. 19 USC this Saturday.

Arizona's two-game winning streak was snapped on Saturday after its 56-point loss to UCLA. The loss was Wildcats' worst of the season. Arizona also lost to Oregon 49-0 on Sept. 22.

Palm predicts that Oregon will represent the Pac-12 in the National Championship game versus Alabama while Oregon State will play Nebraska in the Rose Bowl.
