Chris Foster previews the Pac-12 football title game [video]

December 1, 2011 | 10:50 pm

CineSport's Tara Petrolino sits down with Times college football reporter Chris Foster to preview the Pac-12 Conference's inaugural championship football game between UCLA and Oregon.

They touched on a variety of subjects regarding the game, in which the Ducks are a 32-point favorite, and the status of the Bruins' program with the recently fired Rick Neuheisel about to coach his final game. Some of the highlights:

  • Oregon might not be as focused since they have a loss and will not be playing for a spot in the BCS national title game.
  • The Bruins will be fired up and Foster expects them to hang with Oregon for about a half on pure emotion. Then it could get ugly in the second half.
  • The coaching search has been centered on Boise State's Chris Petersen, who isn't worried as much about the money that UCLA is offering as he is about the lifestyle if he moved his family to Southern California.

The game is set for 5 p.m. and will be televised on Channel 11.
