PASADENA, Calif. -- If the Arizona State University Sun Devils beat UCLA tonight, they will clinch the PAC-12 South Division title and move one step closer to a Rose Bowl appearance.

While ASU is favored to win, the No. 14 Bruins have beat the No. 17 Devils in their past two meetings and are the defending PAC-12 champions.

Arizona State is a game ahead of UCLA, but a loss would create a tie and give the Bruins the tiebreaker. USC still has a chance at winning the South, but the Sun Devils and Bruins can go a long way to deciding what happens in the division, a fact neither coach is hiding from his team.

ASU is 8-2 overall and 6-1 in PAC-12. UCLA is 8-2 overall and  5-2 in PAC-12.
