The 2012 Pacific-12 Conference football season began on August 30, 2012 with Northern Colorado at Utah. The conference's first game was played on September 15 with #2 USC at #21 Stanford, and the final game played was the Pac-12 Championship Game on November 30, 2012. This is the second season for the conference as a 12-team league. Pacific-12 Champion Stanford was featured in the Rose Bowl, a BCS bowl, when they prevailed 20–14 against Big Ten Champion Wisconsin on January 1, 2013.[1]

Previous season[edit]

UCLA defeated USC 38-28 in the Rose Bowl on November 17, 2012 for the South Division Champion
Stanford defeated Wisconsin in the 2013 Rose Bowl on January 1, 2013

The first Pac-12 Championship Game was held on Friday, December 2, 2011. Oregon defeated UCLA to claim their third straight conference title.

Last season, seven teams accepted bowl bids, an improvement from the four in the 2010 season. Oregon Ducks, ending the regular season with a program-first twelve wins and with a #5 BCS ranking, earned a berth in the Rose Bowl, where they defeated Wisconsin for their first Rose Bowl win in 95 years. Stanford repeated as the conference runner-up, ending the regular season with a program-first eleven wins (their sole loss was to Oregon) and with a #4 BCS ranking, giving them an at-large BCS berth. The Cardinal was defeated by Big 12 champion Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl. Arizona lost to Oklahoma State while Washington defeated by Baylor in non-BCS bowls.
