Rose Bowl on the line as Stanford and UCLA square off in Pac-12 Football Championship Game
By the Pac-12 Conference
WALNUT CREEK, Calif.--The STANFORD Cardinal (10-2 overall, 8-1 in the Pac-12 North) will host the UCLA Bruins (9-3 overall, 6-3 in the South) on Friday, November 30 in the second annual Pac-12 Football Championship Game with the right to represent the Pac-12 Conference in the Rose Bowl Game.
With Oregon's 48-24 win at Oregon State earlier in the day, Stanford needed a victory over UCLA to remain tied with Oregon in the North Division. In defeating the Bruins, 35-17, the Cardinal earned a share of the North Division crown with the Ducks. By virtue of its 17-14 overtime win last Saturday in head-to-head competition with Oregon, Stanford earned the tie-breaker and will represent the North Division. As the team with the best conference record, Stanford will host this year's Pac-12 Football Championship Game at Stanford Stadium.
UCLA had already clinched the South Division with its 38-28 win over USC last Saturday.
The Pac-12 Championship Game will be televised by FOX at 5 p.m. PT.
