The Bruins (4-5, 2-4), coming off a win over Oregon State, are also two wins shy of becoming bowl eligible, but have a less grueling closing schedule, with games against Washington, Arizona State and USC left.
"Certainly, there's a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel but we have to focus only on Washington," UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel said.
Arizona State's bowl chances took a hit over the weekend with a wild 34-33 loss at USC.
Because two of the Sun Devils' (4-5, 2-4) wins are against FCS programs, they need to win their final three games or win two, ask the NCAA for a waiver and hope there aren't enough winning teams to fill contracted bowl slots.
With games against Stanford, UCLA and Arizona left on the schedule, it might be tough to even get the two wins.
"They understand where they're at and they understand what's left in our season," Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson said of his players.
So do the rest of the conference's teams, even if the outlook doesn't look so great.
