The Pac-12 season doesn’t begin until Aug. 26, with Oregon State visiting Colorado State and Stanford visiting Rice. But for the perpetually optimistic, tickets for the Pac-12 Championship Game will go on sale Thursday.
The game will be played at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Friday, Dec. 1. Levi’s Stadium has been the host of the Pac-12 Football Championship for the past three years, which featured clashes between Oregon and Arizona, Stanford and USC, and Washington and Colorado, respectively.
Prior to Levi’s Stadium being the annual neutral-site host, the game was hosted at the home stadium of the division champion with the superior conference record.
The Pac-12 Championship Game has been of enormous importance the last few years, as two of the last three champs have gone on to play in the College Football Playoff. In 2016, No. 4 Washington defeated No. 10 Colorado.
