(STANFORD, Calif.) — The Pac-12 championship will be on the line on Saturday when Arizona State hosts Stanford.
The winner will head to the Rose Bowl. Arizona State (10-2) is seeking their first Rose Bowl berth since 1997.
”I can tell you this: Our guys are determined, and we need everyone in these seats,” Sun Devils coach Todd Graham said. ”We need to be loud and proud and make it a great home-field advantage. Our guys want to win this and go to the Rose Bowl.”
The 10-2 Cardinals are seeking back-to-back trips to the bowl.
“We had ups and downs; we had bumps and bruises,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. ”We lost some guys, had some guys step up. We lost a couple games. But when you look up, we’re where we wanted to be, a 10-win team in the Pac-12 championship game, and it’s going to be a heck of a game.”
