LAS VEGAS (AP) -UCLA and BYU will play in the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 22, a rematch of a regular-season game won by the Bruins.
The Bruins (6-6, 5-4) tied for fourth in the Pac-10. They lost 24-7 to Southern California on Saturday.
BYU (10-2) won the Mountain West with an 8-0 record. The Cougars lost to UCLA 27-17 on Sept. 8.
``UCLA is extremely happy to be playing in the Pioneer Las Vegas Bowl,'' fifth-year coach Karl Dorrell said Sunday. ``We are looking forward to facing an outstanding opponent in BYU.''
Dorrell's job appears in jeopardy. The Bruins entered the season with 20 returning starters and high expectations. Erratic play caused in part by injuries to several key players including quarterbacks Ben Olson and Patrick Cowan short-circuited their hopes.
Dorrell was given a one-year extension in February to put him under contract through the 2011 season, but athletic director Dan Guerrero said several weeks ago he'd evaluate the program at season's end.
The Bruins played in the Las Vegas Bowl in 2004, and lost to Wyoming 24-21. In 2002, they beat New Mexico 27-13.
UCLA has won seven of eight meetings against BYU.
The game will be played at UNLV's Sam Boyd Stadium.
