PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - UCLA and Stanford couldn't really be blamed for looking back or looking ahead this week.
The Bruins and Cardinal insist they're only looking at each other.
Both schools are basking in the glow of thrilling victories that would have been appropriately triumphant caps to their regular seasons. Instead, they've still got to face each other on Saturday - and probably again next week, too.
No. 15 UCLA (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12) clinched the Pac-12 South title by blasting USC last weekend, while No. 11 Stanford (9-2, 7-1) moved to the brink of its own spot in the conference title game by stunning Oregon.
The Cardinal can clinch the North with a victory over the Bruins at the Rose Bowl, or a loss by Oregon in the Civil War against Oregon State.
