Chip Kelly won’t coach UCLA in its bowl game, but his words could resonate in the minds of the Bruins. “As I told them [Monday],” Kelly said at his introductory news conference, “‘Great teams finish.’” The Bruins (6-6) will get a chance to complete a disappointing season on a high note when they face Kansas State (7-5) in the Cactus Bowl on Dec. 26 at Chase Field in Phoenix. It will be UCLA’s first appearance in the Cactus Bowl, but the Bruins have some recent postseason history against Kansas State. The Bruins defeated the Wildcats 40-35 in the 2015 Alamo Bowl, a victory that appeared to come with some hard feelings. UCLA was taking a knee on the game’s final play when a Kansas State player leaped over the line of scrimmage toward Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley. UCLA’s Eddie Vanderdoes prevented the player from making contact with Hundley. Bruins linebacker Deon Hollins said that day that he tried to shake Wildcats lineman Cody Whitehair’s hand after the game “but he didn’t want to.” Then-UCLA coach Jim Mora and Kansas State counterpart Bill Snyder appeared to have only a perfunctory exchange near midfield after the game. Mora tweeted afterward, “I will defend the safety of my players forever.” UCLA secured bowl eligibility this season after beating California in its final regular-season game. Bruins quarterback Josh Rosen has said that he would play in any bowl game, which could be his final collegiate appearance before heading to the NFL.
