Tonight, the Trojans face the Cardinal with the Pac-12 Conference Championship on the line.

NCAA Football: Pac-12 Championship-Southern California vs Stanford Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

While a lot of Bruin fans are more concerned with futbol right now, as the Women’s Soccer team is playing Duke, rather than football, it doesn’t change the fact that the Pac-12 Conference will determine who the conference champion is tonight when the Southern Cal Trojans play the Stanford Cardinal.

Sure, the Trojans easily won the regular season matchup between these teams 42-24. But that was with Keller Chryst quarterbacking the Cardinal. Tonight, that will fall to K.J. Costello. Costello will balance Bryce Love for the Cardinal.

Of course, the Trojans will counter with Sam Darnold and Ron Jones offensively.

It should make it for a close game, but I still expect the Cardinal to come out ahead by at least a touchdown. And, I am certain that David Shaw will have his team ready to play tonight because that’s what David Shaw does.

This is your Pac-12 Championship Game open thread.
