Pac-12 uniform watch: Week 14
Rivalry week means that the philosophical debate between tradition against new-age fashion takes a front seat alongside the outcomes of the games themselves. UCLA and USC are expected to continue their tradition of both wearing their home jerseys in their rivalry matchup at the Coliseum. Meanwhile, the Arizona schools are going with something a little more black and white.
In this week's Pac-12 teleconference call, Bruins coach Jim Mora said he was proud that neither USC or UCLA are "dilly-dallying" with their traditional uniforms. On Saturday, UCLA and USC are both wearing their home combos at The Coliseum.

Gold and maroon clashing with cardinal and navy isn't much of a thing in this year's Duel in the Desert. ASU is wearing black jerseys and pants to offset Arizona's all-whites. The Sun Devils are also keeping the checkerboard theme alive with white tops. Territorial Cup, more like Checkerboard Cup ... am I right?
