Is it possible to ground pups on something other than the bridge?
If you think things can't get worse it's probably only because you lack sufficient imagination.

The trem claw, if it has one,

or the stop tail, if it has one.

That's the bridge...

TS no, there is other logical way. Why do you ask? You have to ground them to bridge so it will go away when you touch the strings. It's the same as running a wire to the tuners.

Cause I just got a Saga body and there isn't a hole drilled to the bridge.

What type of bridge is it? TOM or a Tremolo?

Neither a trem claw or a stop tail are technically the bridge.

tune-o-matic with a tailpiece.

Stop tail can be a bridge, and the trem claw is part of one and what an FR uses to mount it's ground, so you're still grounding to the bridge.

Now then, how much room do you have to work with in the control cavity? I would advise taking a 24" drill bit or so, which should give you enough angle to drill a hole for a ground.

AGH!
I'm such an idiot...
I just realized I already put in the little peg for the tailpiece
I've drilled up to that but cant go any further.

How can I get it out?

The bushing? Drop a small screw down in it. Then put in the post the bridge mounts on as far as it will go, and then tighten it with a screw driver. This should drive the screw into the wood and the the stud/bushing out. Afterwards, shake or unscrew the screw out*

*This will only work if the bushing has an open bottom.

Ah great! That worked. And I got the thing grounded too.
Thanks!
