The final week of the season is all about rivalry games even with an important matchup in Los Angeles which will determine the Pac-12 Championship Game teams and location. From the Apple Cup to the greatest intersectional rivalry in college football, it should be a fun two days of football with teams breaking out a few special uniforms.

Neither Colorado or Utah will be going to a bowl game which means wrapping up the year on a high note with a win will be crucial heading into the offseason. Both teams went with standard road/home combinations, with the Buffs’ gold helmets looking great in the crisp mountain air.

As is typical in the state this time of year, it’s was a cold day for the 50th edition of the Apple Cup. The Huskies went with a classic look of white jerseys and purple pants while the Cougars went out onto the field for the final time of the season with a slick gray/crimson combination.
One of the more underrated rivalries in the country is the battle for the Territorial Cup between Arizona and Arizona State. The Wildcats are turning things up a notch this year by hosting a ‘Red Out’ in Tuscon featuring an all-red uniform combination and plenty of the color in the stands.

The 116th Civil War between Oregon and Oregon State not only divides the state but results in a final creative push during the regular season for the folks at Nike, who are responsible for both teams uniforms.
At the Rose Bowl, UCLA broke out their ‘L.A. Nights’ uniforms one more time in a game with monster Pac-12 Championship Game implications (and possible preview of next week). Stanford on the other hand, goes with the all-whites on a bright, sunny day in Southern California.
