This cannot be the way envisioned the 1st ever Pac 12 football Championship Game. Lowly UCLA with it’s fired head coach limping into Oregon to get rolled and soundly beaten b the Oregon Ducks. It would have been interest if Utah had beaten it’s new Pac 12 rival Colorado last Friday. But it didn’t workout that way. So now we have a UCLA team with a coach trying to coach a team that backed into the Pac 12 South Division Championship. Not exactly the way you want to start your 1st year with the Pac 12 Champion and Rose Bowl to happen. What if 31 point underdog upsets Oregon. Not a pretty picture if that were to happen. But, IT WON”T…!
The eighth-ranked Oregon Ducks will be hosting the inaugural Pac 12 Championship Game, as they welcome the UCLA Bruins to Autzen Field this Friday night.
UCLA sits at 6-6 heading in. The athletic department recently fired head coach Rick Neuheisel after a 50-0 loss to USC in the team’s last outing. Neuheisel will be at the helm for this title game though.
With all the odds stacked against the Bruins, the underdogs have prepared all week and hope to shock the nation on Friday. Neuheisel commented about his team’s chances heading to Eugene
“I believe our plan is a good one. Now the devil will be in the details making sure we do all the little things right because that’s what it will take to beat a team as accomplished as Oregon. I know there is no such thing as a perfect game but we’re going to have to get darn close.”
Oregon missed out on its chance to play for a national title when it fell to USC on November 19th, but the 10-2 Ducks now have their attention focused on the Rose Bowl.
There have been instances in which the overwhelming favorites in games like these have taken their opponents too lightly, but Oregon’s coach Chip Kelly dismissed the chances of his cialis online team coming in with an overconfident demeanor this week.
“We respect every opponent that we play. We had lifting scheduled for 10:30 and every kid on this team was in this building at 8:30.”
