The December 31 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl will have 6-7 UCLA against 6-6 Illinois in San Francisco on ESPN.

The two teams had disappointing seasons despite getting off to good starts. Both have one thing in common, they beat Arizona State; the Illini by three points and the Bruins by a single point.

The original head coaches were fired on back-to-back days. Ron Zook was fired by Illinois on November 27 and Rick Neuheisel was fired on November 28, but was allowed to coach in the Pac-12 title game.

The game will feature two interim head coaches, defensive coordinator Vic Koenning for Illinois and Mike Johnson, UCLA’s offensive coordinator.

Illinois’ offense which let the team down in its slide from 6-0 to 6-6. The Illini defense held them in most games, keeping opponents to 28 points or fewer, that kept the team in most games. Illinois was seventh in total defense.

UCLA’s problem was defense as it was outscored 130-37 in its final three losses.
