Get a load of the PAC-12's own website. When you click on the football standings, you see the standings in the two divisions with Stanford and USC on top.
Good old Larry... you're so funny! Calling this game a "championship" game is wrong by the PAC-12 standings page. Or will you guys be changing that page before the game?
After all, it's supposed to be a championship game isn't it?
Or is it?
The page shows Stanford at the top of the Northern Division.
The page shows USC at the top of the Southern Division.
So, this game on Friday night is really the second place teams from both divisions for just PAC-12 conference play.
And, if you compare the number of wins (instead of the number of losses), you find that there are no less than four other teams ahead of UCLA's 5-4/6-6 record.
These teams include Stanford 8-1/11-1, Oregon 8-1/10-2, USC 7-2/10-2, and Washington 5-4/7-5.
Overall winning percentage for UCLA is also beaten by Cal 7-5 and Utah 7-5.
How the heck anyone can call this Friday's game a "championship" is beyond me. It's the battle of the two second place teams!
