Pac-12 Championship Game set: UCLA vs. Stanford, Friday in Palo Alto

Stephen Dunn

Stanford's 35-17 win over the Bruins on Saturday at the Rose Bowl clinched the Pac-12 North Division for the Cardinal, who will host UCLA on Friday in Palo Alto.

The UCLA Bruins lost to the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday, 35-17 at the Rose Bowl, and the two teams will meet again on Friday for the Pac-12 championship in Palo Alto. With the win, the Cardinal clinched the Pac-12 North Division and will host the Bruins in six days.

The 2012 Pac-12 Championship Game will be held on Friday, Nov. 30 at 5 p.m. PT, and will be televised by Fox.

This is the second straight season the Bruins are on the road in the Pac-12 title game, as they lost 49-31 to Oregon. But this year's Bruins squad is much improved at 9-3, already with three more wins than last season. Head coach Jim Mora tied Terry Donohue's school record for most wins by a first-year UCLA coach.

UCLA, with it's spot in the title game already clinched heading into Saturday, essentially held their fate in their own hands. With the Oregon Ducks' win over Oregon State earlier on Saturday, the Bruins were guaranteed to have a road contest for the conference crown. UCLA could have clinched a rematch with the Ducks by beating Stanford, but with the home loss, the Bruins will now have to beat the Cardinal on the road for a trip to the Rose Bowl.
