We have a full slate this week, with both Howland's squad gearing up for the beginning of Pac-12 play with a road-trip to the Bay Area, and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl on Saturday against Illinois. It isn't exactly the kind of bowl we imagined when we said we wanted a Pac-12 vs. Big-10 end-of-the-year match-up. Oh well. Anyway, we find ourselves in the middle of bowl season (with the Holiday Bowl between Cal and Texas kicking off in a few hours). So I won't waste a lot of time pontificating in this edition of Bruin Bites.

With that, let's get right to the bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Alright folks, those are your mid-week edition of Bruin Bites as we count down the days until our final football game of 2011. Fire away with your thoughts, additions, and comments in the thread.
