9. Stanford at UCLA, 35-17 (2012)
There was a lot of hope for UCLA Football in this game, the final regular season game of 2012. The Bruins had already won the South Division in Jim Mora’s first season, so a win against the North Division winner, Stanford, would keep the Bruins and the Pac-12 Championship game in Pasadena. Lose and the Pac-12 champ will be decided up at Stanford.
The Bruins had so much momentum going into this game. Just the week before, UCLA beat USC for the first time in five years, with Anthony Barr making himself known to Matt Barkley.
Things looked good for the Bruins but Stanford was already at the top of the Pac while UCLA Football was still trying to establish itself. After this game, the Bruins had to try even harder.
