Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott lamented not having South Division winner USC in Friday’s championship game. "Had there not been a postseason ban for USC, we’d have two top-10 teams in this game," Scott said. "Of course it’s disappointing when such a strong team like USC is not allowed to participate."
USC is not eligible for the postseason, putting South Division runner-up UCLA in Friday’s Pac-12 championship game. "UCLA earned their spot," commissioner Larry Scott said Friday. "It’ll still be a great showcase and we’re expecting a full house and an electric atmosphere, and there’s an awful lot on the line."
Did you get that?
let me reprint that... "It’ll still be a great showcase"
