Third quarter: Oregon 49, UCLA 24

EUGENE, Ore. -- The first Pac-12 championship game appears over after three quarters. Oregon is headed to the Rose Bowl. UCLA is probably headed to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl with a 6-7 record, courtesy of a waiver from the NCAA.

The big news may be a bunch of Oregon -- and Pac-12 -- records.

LaMichael James is the first conference running back back with three consecutive 1,500 yard seasons. Quarterback Darron Thomas has set on Oregon career record with 63 touchdown passes.

Oregon set school records for rushing yards in a season as well as passing touchdowns, which is sort of an impressive thing, if you think about it.

One thing you can say for UCLA: It showed up and fought. The differential here merely demonstrates the distance between the two programs.

Which, yes, is vast.
