Ok, we all know Oregon is going to kill UCLA in this game--

But my question is... do you think they will beat the spread?

Current Spread ~ 31 points

I think they won't.

Who schedules a Conference Championship game on a Friday when it's still the High School Football post-season? Pathetic fail for the PAC.

I think uo covers for sure. UCLA is beyond sucktitude. I've seen stranger things happen though.

High school football is nowhere near as big a deal on the west coast as it is in the South/Midwest, at least not in California.

I am hoping UCLA surprises some people. I actually don't think they will cover that spread.

Your claim does nothing to justify the PAC12 holding the CCG on a Friday night. It doesn't matter how big or small High School football is in PAC12 country, it's still just not right.

I grew up in California. CIF Playoffs are a big deal.


I guess the Pac 12 just doesn't care that much about their future stars.

I'm thinking it could look a little like this game:

This will be a great game for about 7 minutes-----by the middle of the second quarter viewers will be using the remote controls to find a new viewing choice.

Just saying that I don't think that the Pac would be all that worried about getting in the way of high school football playoffs due to the fact that it's not nearly as big a deal here. I'm sure elsewhere they would probably take it into consideration. I've lived in Oklahoma and currently live in California, and the level of interest among the general public [that is, people who don't actually have a kid playing in the game] is just not that great here. I can still name almost all of the top high school programs in Oklahoma because it's everywhere you go there. I have no idea who the top teams are even just in the city and region here in California where I live.

It's definitely going to be a pretty sad excuse for a championship game, no matter when they play it.

I have friends who are Ducks season ticket holders who aren't concerned about the game being the same time as high school football playoffs as much as the fact that the game is scheduled at 5 PM on a Friday. Meaning that all the Ducks fans in the Portland and Salem metros are going to have to basically take the whole afternoon off work and drive down in what will probably be a massive traffic jam just before the normal Friday rush-hour on I-5.

But the whole idea when the Pac 12 scheduled the game was to get on primetime TV at a time that could be broadcast on the East Coast on a Friday night(not conflicting with the other big conference championships on Saturday)-they couldn't have know it'd be a stinker like Oregon playing UCLA when they made that decision.

I think UCLA will come out charging hard in the 1st half but fade and get buried in the 2nd. Oregon wins, maybe 55-21?
