Many expected that USC-Oregon on Nov. 3 was going to be a preview of the Pac-12 Championship Game.
Boy were they wrong.
In reality, it was Stanford-UCLA on Nov. 24 that was the true preview of the Pac-12 Championship Game, which the Cardinal won handily in a 35-17 game at the Rose Bowl.
With the win, we learned much about both teams, and the conference as a whole.
This will hopefully let us make the correct prediction for the No. 30th Pac-12 Championship Game in Palo Alto, CA between Stanford and UCLA.
