Question for CFB fans: why did Oregon not win PAC 12?
I follow college football a little but I'm not too familiar with all the rules regarding conference champions. Anyway, so up to a few weeks ago, Oregon was undefeated and #2 in the nation, and after losing a game they didn't even get a shot at the PAC 12 championship. To make matters stranger, the PAC 12 championship was a rematch between two teams that had played the week before, with Stanford beating UCLA for the second straight week to take the crown. Fortunately for Oregon, they still made a BCS bowl game as the top ranked non-conference champion. I just don't understand how Stanford and UCLA played (in a rematch) for the title when Oregon was ranked ahead of both of them. Somebody please enlighten me.
