Tempe, Ariz. • D.J. Foster ran for 124 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 13 Arizona State dismantled rival Arizona 58-21 Saturday night to earn home-field advantage in next week's Pac-12 championship game.

Arizona State (10-2, 8-1 Pac-12) won last year's game by scoring 24 points in the fourth quarter and raced out to a 27-point lead by the midpoint of the second this time.

Taylor Kelly threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns, De'Marieya Nelson ran for two scores and the Sun Devils had no trouble without leading rusher and scorer Marion Grice.

After scoring the most points in Territorial Cup history, Arizona State will host No. 8 Stanford in next Saturday's Pac-12 title game with a spot in the Rose Bowl on the line.

Arizona (7-5, 4-5) fell flat in trying to boost its bowl pedigree.

No. 8 Stanford 27, No. 25 Notre Dame 20 • In Stanford, Calif., Wayne Lyons intercepted two passes from Tommy Rees late in the fourth quarter, and Stanford held off Notre Dame in the regular-season finale for both teams.

The Cardinal (10-2) overcame two interceptions from Kevin Hogan and a penalty that wiped away another touchdown to win their 16th consecutive home game. Stanford will play for its second straight Pac-12 title and Rose Bowl berth next week when it faces No. 13 Arizona State in the conference championship game.

No. 22 UCLA 35, No. 23 USC • In Los Angeles, Brett Hundley passed for 208 yards and rushed for two touchdowns, leading UCLA past Southern California and winning the crosstown showdown for the second straight season.

Linebacker Myles Jack and defensive end Eddie Vanderdoes also rushed for touchdowns as the Bruins (9-3, 6-3 Pac-12) earned their first win at the Coliseum since 1997, retaining the Victory Bell by grinding out just their third victory over USC (9-4, 6-3) in 15 years. —
