It's official -- both participants in the Pac-12 Football Championship Game on Dec. 2 at Levi’s® Stadium have been decided. After the Apple Cup yielded the Pac-12 North's title game participant Friday, Colorado seized their opportunity to lock up the Pac-12 South on Saturday.

Pac-12 North


Washington's 45-17 win over Washington State Friday in the annual Apple Cup showdown secured the Huskies' first-ever Pac-12 North title. They're now set to clash with Colorado next Friday in Santa Clara with hopes of even greater College Football Playoff aspirations on the line.

Washington State

Critical back-to-back losses to close out the conference season sunk Washington State's chances of appearing in its first Pac-12 Football Championship Game. The Cougars did rebound from some early adversity this season to rattle off an eight-game winning streak that guaranteed them a bowl appearance.

Pac-12 South


The Buffaloes controlled their own destiny Saturday, and delivered. Their 27-22 win over Utah in Boulder clinched the Pac-12 South. Colorado will head to Levi’s® Stadium to take on Chris Petersen & Co. in a matchup that features arguably the two most consistent teams in their respective divisions. 


The Trojans were mere bystanders this weekend when it came to their Pac-12 South title hopes. A non-coneference rivalry win over Notre Dame Saturday at the Coliseum extended USC's current win streak to eight games, but didn't help them in their quest for Santa Clara.
