Does Stanford Control Their Own Destiny?

Hopefully this is something we won't have to deal with, but I have a hypothetical question for those in the know:

If Stanford wins out in the Pac-10 and UCLA wins all of their games aside from their remaining matchup with Stanford, then both teams will finish with identical records in Pac-10 play.  Since they'll have split their games head-to-head, does anyone know what the next tiebreaker would be to determine who would get the #1 seed in the Pac-10 tournament?  If it's record vs better competition (which is how they settle it in the Big East), then we're screwed b/c Stanford swept USC.  But I have no idea if that's the same procedure that the Pac 10 uses.

(filler to meet 200 word requirement)
Once again, I hope that UCLA takes care of business and this becomes a moot question.  And really, seeding in the Pac-10 tourney is of little significance in the big picture for the Bruins, but for financial (read; gambling) reasons, this has become an important issue to me in the last few weeks; and I now I need to decide if I want to do some hedging during Stanford's last few games.  Thanks.
