Series history: First meeting
It's a battle of the Bears in the 2012 Holiday Bowl with Baylor facing UCLA for the first time in school history. This could be a bit like the 2011 Alamo Bowl -- except the roles may be reversed. Last year it was a ranked Baylor team trying to hold off the challenge from the Pac 10. This year, it's a ranked Pac 12 team that will hope to slow down Baylor's offense and prevent the upset.
