The way I understand it, UCLA is in the Conference Championship regardless of whether they win or lose to Stanford. So I'm wondering how motivated are they to win Saturday just to possibly host the CC the following week? I say possibly because there is 1 scenario where even if they win they have to travel to Oregon. On a side note, there is also a scenario where even if Oregon wins they may not play in the Conference Champ game. It's a little more simple for Stanford, win and you're in. But they could lose and STILL be in.
Bear in mind the outcome of the Civil War in Oregon should be known before the start of this game. The question then is how "hard" does either team play and risk injury to key players in a game where the benefit of winning just means you get to host the same team the following week?
