The end of the college football season is never a welcomed sight for fans of all 128 programs. However, the end of November brings arguably one of – if not No. 1 – parts of the college football regular season in rivalry week.
Week 12 of the 2016 college football season produced several big performances and memorable moments. Saturday's slate didn't produce another week of upsets, but there were several key matchups that will have a role in determining conference champions or the playoff picture.
Every year since 1929 — and in some years, twice — UCLA and USC have met on the football field in competition. Saturday marks the 86th installment of the series, sometimes referred to as the Crosstown Rivalry.
A potential preview of the Pac-12 Championship is on tap this Saturday, as Washington State and Colorado meet in Boulder for one of the top matchups in Week 11. With two weeks remaining until the Pac-12 Championship, there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding both divisions in the Pac-12. Colorado (6-1) holds a slight edge over USC (5-2) and Utah (5-2) in the South.
