The destiny game.

Right now UCLA is winning it.

The Bruins only need to win their next two games, against USC Saturday and Stanford on Nov. 28, to advance to the Pac-12 championship game. All the other contenders in the South Division need help.

The scenarios:

UCLA goes to Santa Clara for the Dec. 5 game by winning. If the Bruins beat USC and lose to Stanford, then Arizona, Arizona State and Utah need to lose one more game.

Arizona needs to win its next two games, plus USC has to lose UCLA and the Bruins have to lose to Stanford.

Arizona State needs to win its last two games, plus USC has to beat UCLA. If the Sun Devils lose to Washington State and beat Arizona to finish with a 6-3 record, they need Utah to win its last two games, UCLA to beat USC and Stanford to beat UCLA..
USC needs to beat UCLA and have Arizona State lose one of its last two games.

And ...

Utah goes to the title game by winning its last two games and everyone else finishing with a 6-3 record, creating a five-way tie for first place.

A long shot? Sure, but in a conference where so many games have been decided on the last play or overtime, anything is possible.
