The winner of the Pac-12 Championship will win the conference and earn an automatic bid to the Playstation Fiesta Bowl. The Rose Bowl will be a College Football Playoff Semifinal this season.
The Ducks are aiming to win back-to-back Pac-12 Championships for the first time since 2010 and 2011.
Last year, Oregon defeated then-No. 5 Utah 37-15 in the 2019 Pac-12 Championship and earned a trip to the 2020 Rose Bowl, where the Ducks defeated Wisconsin 28-27.
Oregon takes on USC in Los Angeles at 5:00 p.m. PT on Friday, December 18th.
