2012 Pac-12 Championship, UCLA vs. Stanford: Preview and TV schedule

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The UCLA Bruins and the Stanford Cardinal prepare for a rematch in the Pac-12 Championship game.

The Stanford Cardinal and the UCLA Bruins are set for a battle in the Pac-12 Championship game. The game is scheduled for a 5 PM local start on FOX in Palo Alto.

Stanford is the winner of the Pac-12 North with a 10-2 record and 8-1 Pac-12 record. They earned the division crown after managing to beat Oregon in Autzen and only lose one conference game during the season. By virtue of the head-to-head with Oregon they earned the bid and the right to host the conference title game with the best overall conference record. Stanford is led by their physical defense and run-first philosophy up front.

UCLA is the winner of the Pac-12 South with a 9-3 record and 6-3 record. Despite losses to Oregon State, Cal and Stanford, UCLA swept the Pac-12 South by winning all five games against their divisional rivals, including a win over USC. The Bruins have a host of talent on both offense and defense, and have been managed quite well by redshirt freshman Brett Hundley.

Both Stanford and UCLA have had experience with the Arizona schools, beating them on every occasion. The Cardinal rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Wildcats in overtime at home by a final score of 54-48. The Bruins routed Arizona 66-10, then came back and rallied to beat ASU 45-43 in the final seconds.
