UCLA, Florida International Projected As 2011 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Participants

Getting to watch a football game played at AT&T Park is quite the experience, one that Cal football fans have been getting a nice taste of all season long. But before Cal made their temporary move to shores of McCovey Cove there was only the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl to take in some college football action, which will take place again this New Year's Eve. 

The University of Nevada took out the Boston College Eagles last year in a East-meets-West showdown, which may very well happen again this year as UCLA is projected to take on Florida International in the city by the Bay. 

Both the Bruins and the Golden Panthers have had themselves an up and down season thus far, as UCLA sits at 4-4 while FIU is 5-3. The Golden Panthers schedule shouldn't prove to be too difficult moving forward as they have Western Kentucky, Florida Atlantic, Louisiana-Monroe and Middle Tennessee left on the docket, though they are projected to finish 6-6 on the year. The Bruins still have a meetings with No. 19 Arizona State, Utah, Colorado, and USC, and are also projected to finish 6-6. 

A lot could still happen over the next few weeks as both schools are going to need to get some wins if they want to make a bowl game at all.
