But if Stanford beats UCLA....they will play each other again the following week for PAC 12 championship game?
that is the way I understand it.
Man, that would suck having to play the same team two weeks in a row.
but it would be a rematch!!!! NOT FAIR! NOT FAIR!
10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
This is correct. I don't know why they did it this way. They should play Cal the last week with the other North teams playing intradivisional rivalry games.
Dumb PAC scheduled cross division matchup for the final week. I hope the Cardinal win this week just to see their conference despair.
Let me ask this question if you are UCLA would you throw the game this week versus Stanford knowing you will play them again next week instead of Oregon. It would give them a much better chance of getting to the Rose Bowl playing Stanford instead of Oregon. I know as a coach it would be hard to throw a game but the game this week against Stanford really means nothing for UCLA. What are your thoughts?
According to the commentators from last night's game, if Stanford wins (their next game), they win their division. I think UCLA has already won theirs, so I guess so.

Some people bring a knife to a gun fight. Mark Richt brings a Super Soaker 2000.
I would expect to win every game.
It is an intriguing proposition given the scenario. Never would happen, but it's fun to think about.

It's not even a relevant question to ask if a group of coaches and players would all agree to "throw a game"--where does this conspiracy type thinking come from? In a make-believe world maybe, but you don't get an entire fb team to play not to win.
I'm not saying it would happen but that would be the actual best case scenario for them to lose to stanford the first game. They could go into an NFL playoff mentality and save all there starters that is all I'm saying.
