Prediction: Pac-12 Week 14
By Ted Miller
Went 6-1 last week, missing on Colorado's upset win at Utah -- how the heck did I not see that coming? -- and the season record is 65-24.
I won't miss more than one game this week, either.
Friday: Pac-12 championship game
Oregon 45, UCLA 17: The Bruins figure to come out fired up, and they will stick with the Ducks early. That sometimes happens against Oregon. But midway through the third quarter, the Ducks will start to get in rhythm, solve the Bruins' schemes and start to pull away. Oregon will win its third consecutive Pac-12 title and earn a Rose Bowl berth. UCLA will say goodbye to coach Rick Neuheisel and await its bowl fate, yoked with a 6-7 record but carrying a get-out-of-a-losing-record free card, provided by the NCAA.
