team. 70. All of a sudden, thanks to a huge upset, the UCLA Bruins are back in control of their own destiny to win the Pac-12 Championship. Not enough for you? They also have a very good chance at the College Football Playoff with a stroke of good fortune. <p>Jim Mora has a team playing very well right now, and they have to be incredibly excited about the position they are in.</p> <p>Brett Hundley has gotten back into the Heisman race by playing so well as a dual-threat quarterback for the Bruins, and the offense overall has just been incredible for this team as it has been on a four-game winning streak. But the defense has come through when needed as well, the way it did against the Arizona Wildcats. And close wins against California and Washington proved this team knows how to win.</p> <p>Controlling its own destiny as a 2-loss team, UCLA has to hope for at least four of the seven one-loss teams to lose. The Bruins could contribute by winning out, which would assure Oregon being knocked off. Then, they need a bit more help. But they also have to focus on winning out, and despite the two games being at home, USC and Stanford are both good teams that can’t be taken lightly.</p>. 8-2 (5-2). Previous: 3rd. UCLA Bruins. 2
