Notes[edit]

  1. ^ National Champion UCLA was ineligible for the Rose Bowl due to a "no-repeat" rule, with USC (a team UCLA had beaten 34–0) sent instead and losing.
  2. ^ 9–1, #5 ranked UCLA was voted out of the Rose Bowl by the AAWU conference in favor of 7–4 USC due to it having one more 'conference game win", 4–1 to UCLA's 3–1. UCLA beat USC earlier that year.
  3. ^ a b c UCLA finished the 1977 season 7–4 overall and 5–2 in conference, tied for 2nd in the conference. They later forfeited the 7 wins due to having an ineligible player.
  4. ^ UCLA was ineligible for post season play after the 1980 season due to probation.
  5. ^ Coach Toledo was fired before the bowl game, so offensive line coach Ed Kezirian coached the 2002 Las Vegas Bowl.
  6. ^ Coach Dorrell was fired before the bowl game, so defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker coached the 2007 Las Vegas Bowl.
  7. ^ USC had a better conference record, but was ineligible for postseason play due to probation, so UCLA, the 2nd place finisher, was the Pac-12's first South Division Champions.
  8. ^ Coach Neuheisel was fired before the bowl game, so offensive coordinator Mike Johnson coached the 2011 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.
  9. ^ Mora coached of 11 of 12 regular season games prior to dismissal, Jedd Fisch coached the final regular season game and the bowl game. Record reflects combined record.
  10. ^ Coach Mora was fired after the USC game, so offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch was head coach against Cal and in the 2017 Cactus Bowl.
