The bowl speculation will finally end for Arizona tonight.

The Wildcats will huddle for their team banquet around 5 p.m., and at the end, find out what bowl game they are headed to.

Most bowl projections have the Pac-12 only getting one team into the BCS with Oregon being left out in favor of a second Big 12 team.

If that happens, Arizona is likely headed to either the Gildan New Mexico Bowl on Dec. 21 or the AdvoCare V100 Bowl on Dec. 31 in Shreveport, La. The Texas Bowl in Houston is also an outside possibility.

The Houston game, scheduled for Dec. 27, is supposed to feature a Big 12 team and a Big 10 team. But if the Big 12 sends two teams to the BCS, the bowl will need to select an at-large team to fill that spot.

If Oregon is selected for the BCS, which is still a possibility, Arizona could head to the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 21.

The Wildcats returned to practice on Saturday and will hold another session today before the banquet.
