Stanford, Arizona State to play in Pac-12 Football Championship Game
Both participants in the 2013 Pac-12 Football Championship Game are known: Stanford and Arizona State.
Stanford clinched at least a share of the Pac-12 North and will play in the FCG Dec. 7 (on ESPN at 4:45 p.m. PT) by virtue of its win over Cal in Saturday's Big Game coupled with Oregon's surpising loss to Arizona. Though Stanford and Oregon could still finish tied in the North, the Cardinal holds the tiebreaker by virtue of its head-to-head win over the Ducks earlier this season.
Arizona State's 38-33 win over UCLA Saturday also gave the Sun Devils at least a share of the Pac-12 South title. Although USC can still tie ASU with a win next Saturday against UCLA, ASU holds the tiebreaker due to its win over the Trojans earlier this year.

The lone remaining questions is, where will the game be played?
The Sun Devils host if they beat Arizona in the Territorial Cup next Saturday in Tempe (6:30 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Networks).
Stanford hosts if ASU loses, regardless of how the Cardinal fares vs. Notre Dame in their regular-season finale (4 p.m. PT on Fox).
