PASADENA, Calif. -- There were three scenarios for Stanford and the program's Pac-12 title hopes coming into Saturday. For the Cardinal players and coaches, there was only one.

 

Win.

The program many thought would slip to the middle of the pack with the departure of quarterback Andrew Luck delivered an emphatic 35-17 statement at the Rose Bowl against UCLA to capture the North Division title and setup a rematch six days later. The Cardinal will host the 2012 Pac-12 Championship Game Friday night at 5 p.m. PT. The winner will play in the Rose Bowl on January 1.
