Pac-12 Championship Game scenarios: UCLA will battle Stanford or Oregon

Jeff Gross

The Bruins are in the Pac-12 Championship Game for the second straight season, and Saturday's results will determine whether UCLA will battle Stanford or Oregon, and where, for the conference crown.

The UCLA Bruins have already won the Pac-12 South Division and are assured a spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Their opponent will be either the Stanford Cardinal or Oregon Ducks, and a scenario still exists in which the Bruins would host the conference title tilt.

The Pac-12 Championship Game will be played on Friday, Nov. 30 at the site of the Pac-12 division winner with the better conference record. The 5 p.m. PT game will be televised by Fox. Two games on Saturday will decide the Bruins' opponent.

  • 12 p.m. PT - Oregon (10-1, 7-1) at Oregon State (8-2, 6-2), Pac-12 Networks
  • 3:30 p.m. PT - Stanford (9-2, 7-1) at UCLA (9-2, 6-2), Fox

For UCLA to host the title game, they would need two things to happen on Saturday: a home win over Stanford, and for the Oregon State Beavers to win The Civil War. That would mean the Bruins host the Cardinal for a second consecutive week, with the winner on Nov. 30 headed to the Rose Bowl.

Stanford's scenario is the simplest. The Cardinal need to beat UCLA to clinch the North Division, which would set up a rematch six days later in Palo Alto.

Oregon, which just last week had thoughts of playing in another BCS Championship Game, need help on Saturday. They need to beat the Beavers, and need UCLA to beat Stanford. If both of those outcomes happen, the Ducks would host the Bruins in the Pac-12 Championship Game for the second consecutive season.
