Comments (5)

Why in the world could they not have Stanford vs.Cal and UCLA vs.Colorado on the last Saturday in November to avoid cross divison matchups 6 days before the championship game?

The conference never seems to have set rivalry-week games. Part of this is likely due to Notre Dame’s series with USC and Stanford; before 2005 the conference didn’t play round-robin too. But you’d think by now they’d at least minimize the cross-division games at the end of the season and could work out a simple 2-year pattern of games with a single cross-over game, between a NoCal and SoCal team.

Just realized Larry Scott and co are back at it again with those week 11 byes. I feel sorry for Arizona and UW fans
