This is a list of UCLA Bruins bowl games. The UCLA Bruins football team has played in 32 bowl games in its history, compiling a record of 15–16–1. From 1946 to 1974, no team could participate in the Rose Bowl two years in a row. This is why the 1954 team, which won the conference, did not participate in the 1955 Rose Bowl.
