The Pac-12 conference welcomed in Utah and Colorado prior to the 2011 season, as the league debuted its conference championship that season. The league split into two divisions with the North consisting of California, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Washington, and Washington State, while the South displays Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, UCLA, USC, and Utah. The venue for the championship game changes each season as the division champion with the best record will host the contest.
Pac-12 Championship Game History
The underdog has covered in each of the first Pac-12 title games, even though the favorite won outright in each instance. Oregon closed as a 31-point home favorite over UCLA in the inaugural Pac 12 championship in 2011, as the Ducks topped the Bruins, 49-31. UCLA did not own the best record in the South division, as USC could not participate in the game due to NCAA sanctions. The Bruins qualified for the game in 2012 by owning the top mark in the South division, but fell to Stanford, 27-24 as eight-point underdogs. The 'over' cashed each time, including this past season on a 44 total, which is unusually low for a Pac 12 contest.
In 2014, for the first time in the four-year history of the Pac-12 Championship Game, the favorite Oregon covered, and covered handily by a 51-13 count over Arizona, avenging a loss to the Wildcats earlier in the season in Eugene.
