1. UCLA vs Stanford, 24-27 (2012 Pac-12 Championship Game)

All right! Of course a Stanford loss is going to be the worst loss in Jim Mora’s tenure. The Bruins had impressed everyone in the coach’s first year and made it to the Pac-12 Championship Game. The week before the Bruins played Stanford at the Rose Bowl and got their butts whipped.

It was a much closer game in the championship.

UCLA looked damn good and played tough the entire game. In that second half, the Bruins were leading, but the Cardinal forged ahead to win the game and the Pac-12. UCLA was almost there. They had a chance, but unfortunately could not convert and just like that their first Pac- 12 Championship since 1989 was now dust in the wind.

So with that, GO BRUINS!!! Beat Stanford!
