I thought you made a mistake with UNC Central, because I thought you meant to put Northern Colorado. And then I noticed that UNC Central is an actual team, I forgot. And they’re playing UCLA. That’s a cupcake and a layup game all in one for UCLA.

That was from the Pac-12 release and is incorrect. Changed it to NC Central, they are North Carolina Central University, not the University of North Carolina Central.
