The bowl is held at Qualcomm Stadium on December 27th and will be televised nationally by ESPN with a 6:45 kickoff.
Its the second straight year the Bruins will play in a bowl game in California, last year playing in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco.
The Bears finished the regular season 7-5, having won three straight, the streak starting with a 52-24 pasting of then #1 Kansas State in Waco.
A year after losing Heisman Trophy Winner Robert Griffin III, the Bears started the season fast, going 3-0 out of the gates, before losing four straight. After splitting their next two, to stand at 4-5, they peeled off the three straight wins, which also included victories over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.
For the Bruins, they've had their most successful regular season since going 9-2 in 2005, winning the Pac-12 South before falling to Stanford 27-24 on Friday night in the Pac-12 Championship Game, missing out on the Rose Bowl.
It will be the first time the Bears and Bruins have ever met.
