The game of the week in the Pac-12 delivered, with USC walking out of the Rose Bowl with a thrilling 48-45 win over UCLA on Saturday night.

The Trojans have secured a slot in the Pac-12 Championship game, and are just two wins away from a likely CFP berth in Lincoln Riley’s first season.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I break down each team’s performance in the penultimate week of the regular season.

USC was the biggest winner, but far from the only one over the weekend, with several teams setting up crucial games this week.

Not every team had the rosy result they were searching for going into Saturday, most notably the UCLA Bruins who have now lost two games in a row—both at home—after giving the ball away too many times against the Trojans.

Other fanbases are also feeling the sting of losses from the weekend.
