Bruins Clinch Championship Game Berth
WALNUT CREEK, Calif.--The UCLA Bruins have secured a spot in the inaugural Pac-12 Football Championship Game to be played Friday, December 2.
With Utah's loss to Colorado earlier today, UCLA locks up a berth as the South Division representative in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Regardless of the outcome of tonight's California-Arizona State game in Tempe, Ariz., and Saturday's UCLA-USC game in Los Angeles, the Bruins can do no worse than finish league play in a tie with Arizona State at 5-4. Should a tie occur, UCLA will have the advantage in the tie-break procedure over Arizona State as it defeated the Sun Devils in head-to-head competition on November 5.
The Pac-12 Championship Game, which will be televised by FOX at 5 p.m. PT, will be hosted by the school with the best Conference record. At this point, either Oregon or Stanford from the North Division will host the game. Should Oregon defeat Oregon State on Saturday, it will host the Pac-12 Championship Game. Should Oregon State defeat Oregon, Stanford will host the game.
