shared a very tender moment as two coaches of that experienced the same kind of thing. we will go down to coach brew right after this. second down and six. coach brewster, yesterday was something you rarely see from two coaches. >> not only two coaches but two great friends. i have so much admiration for rick neuheisel. it goes back to when we played against each other in the rose bowl. he's an outstanding coach but an even better person. the feelings are raw when you get fired. it was a great moment for me and him to share together. >> gus: tears flowing in the room from both gentleman. third down and three at the 13.
and coleman barreling ahead, close to the first down. eddie pleasant. we asked coach neuheisel what was in store for him after this game. he was honest. helfrich -- hell bent to continue to do what he loves. >> still a coach. the relationships you build up in coaching, that's what you look for. those guys coming back and seeing you later. those guys taking care of you right now. >> gus: over the middle. rosario with the reception. >> gus: neuheisel in a way, charles, sacrificial in a sense,
because you know whoever ucla hires they will rollout the red carpet and making changes in facilities andal kids to get in school and things will be different. >> charles: a natural evolution. they make changes and they typically upgrade for the next coach. >> gus: prince firing. incomplete. the throw behind anthony barr. stuckey in there. >> charles: face guarding. where is the penalty? there's no such thing as face guarding. you do not have to turn and find the ball. you just cannot run into the receiver before the ball gets there. dewitt stuckey made a nice play by not seeing the ball. it's fortunate it hit him between the five and the two but you never interfere with the receiver going after the ball. >> we will shortly have the
announcement of the first-ever mvp of the pac-12 championship. the incomplete pass. joseph fauria had it knocked out of his hands. >> charles: best friend and best friend. those two met in the eighth grade. you know where they met? at the movies. prince was at the movie sitting in front of fauria. fauria made a lot of noise and prince tapped him kindly to be quiet, but i don't think it was as kind as they said and that's how they became friends and remain that way today. third down and ten at the 34. prince over the middle. incomplete, fauria the intended receiver. a late flag thrown.
>> charles: that was thrown to the middle of the field by the back judge who had a view from the inside-out of that play >> referee: pass interference on the defense, number 11. 15-yard penalty. first down. >> charles: coaches often get upset and say the side on the guy didn't call it, how does a guy that far away from the ball calling it. i talked to a bunch. officials and they told me he's riding him
deflect ted line of scrimmage. >> coming in, all i kept thinking of myself i know ucla is the underdog. you see kevin prince's numbers for tonight. but throughout their history, they have been the team that's bring the upset. we talk about them beating number 4 illinois team in the rose bowl. neuheisel didn't even go to the game on the team bus. came in a private car so the team wouldn't see him getting sick before the game and was the mvp. they pulled off upsets before. doesn't look like it will happen tonight. >> gus: a hand-off to franklin. franklin picks up the first
down. for chip kelly, he's four minutes away from three championships in three years. what an innovator. he talked about science over tradition and he means things like not drinking coffee after 3:00 and how it affects your body. changing your practices to early in the morning to get maximum effort as opposed to having them after school. practicing for only an hour. over the middle and incomplete. here's a man with so many innovations. but more than that, he has a great relationship with his players of coolness, of all maniness and a swagger about him. look at him on the sideline right now. >> charles: not just an offensive coach. we watched them practice. you often here about practice with specialties on one side of the ball and maybe not being as involved with the other side of the ball. watching him practice and watching him go through special teams where he knew everything was going on, moving the guys
around. we saw in this game talking to the defensive players. he knows his whole team, not just one side. >> gus: second down and ten. prince. fauria tracks him down as he gets to the line of scrimmage. oregon with innovative style. a couple years as a coordinator and then given the job as the head coach. 43 points a game. three years as head coach. has a great relationship with john. you just wonder when the nfl is going to come knocking on his door. underneath, rosario with the catch. how do you think his style would
translate to the national football team? >> we are watching resemblance what tim tebow is is doing and t gives them a fit. he would have to have an owner that would go all in to that innovative style and he would have to have not just one quarterback to do it, but multiple because of the hits you take at that level. >> gus: fourth down and 2 for ucla. a time-out called by the bruins. 2:25 to play in the championship. 49-24. back to eugene after this. hey ladies. enjoying the film? of course not. because this is our movie. and dr pepper ten is our soda! it's only ten manly calories, but with all 23 flavors of dr pepper. it's what guys want. like this... catch phrase!

ducks fans. here are the results. looks like duck fans are showing more support for their team. you can still join the battle by using hash tag go bruins or go ducks. 83-17. 49-24. 2:25 to go. fourth down and two for ucla. straight ahead and a first down for derrick coleman. the bruins refusing to give up. 2:18 to go in the fourth quarter. the 14th play of the drive that started at the ucla 6-yard line. coleman has done a really nice
job tonight running the ball. 81 yards rushing. prince. over the middle. broken up at the last moment. shaq evans, the intended receiver. a lot of changes going on in the pac-12. new coach at washington state, new coach at arizona. there will be a new coach at ucla. >> charles: and arizona state still has an opening. how about the coaches coming in. rich rodriguez coming to arizona and chip kelly spent time missing with him in clemson when he was there which helped form this great offense we see now. and mike leach, you know he will do it at washington state. >> gus: prince. oh, what a catch by rosario!
one-handed! 19 yards. >> charles: this is flat out gorgeous. this is what they were talking about. you want more out of me, coach? i guess i will give it to you. one hand. pulls it in. look it, he never even pulled it into his body. oftentimes you make that catch you have to cradle it and bring it to your body to control it. that was one big paw and it stuck. he takes his finger and rolls it over the goalpost after that catch. what a beautiful job. >> gus: 101 yards, two touchdowns for rosario. extra point good. 49-31. nelson rosario in motion!
the play of the game tonight, and it was early on. got it going with lamichael james. >> charles: beautifully blocked at the line of scrimmage. ucla, no one deep to try to make a play on lamichael james. once he pierced the line of scrimmage, there was a wall and that's kamalani, the running back coach right next to him. he spent thanksgiving day at the campbell home enjoying the meal and he rewarded his coach for feeding him with a big game tonight. >> gus: he comes in and takes the snap with 1:43 remaining. stay tuned for the at&t postgame show and the first-ever announcement of the mvp for the championship game. >> charles: do we have much doubt about that?
>> gus: i don't think there's much doubt about it. one mr. lamichael james. james tonight rush being the football 25 times for 221 yards. averaging close to 9 yards per carry. don't forget tomorrow night, folks, even more fun. october 22nd the michigan state playing in not just one of the pest games of the season, but ended with the play of the year as curt cousins 44-yard pass which wasn't called a touchdown originally, was overturned and giving the spartans the victory over wisconsin. tomorrow night it's the rematch only on fox! >> charles: what a play that was.
now they have the rematch. >> gus: that should do it. 49-31, the final. chip kelly and oregon with win e inaugural pac-12 championship game in eugene. the two coaches meeting. one will be going to the rose bowl in chip kelly. and the other, rick neuheisel, his future uncertain. >> charles: heckuva football coach right there. chip kelly, heckuva ballplayer. lamichael james hugging

>> very excited. very happy for the team and all the players on the team. >> i thought you did a great job sod. you showed poise, and when we asked you yesterday who is the leader of this duck football team, what was your answer? >> it was me all the way. i come out each week, get these guys ready to prepare and we come out each week to do a good job. >> congratulations. now go to pasadena and win! >> thank you, man. thank you. >> all right. thank you very much. derron thomas, 20 of 36, 219 yards, three touchdowns, one interception for oregon. this program is just such a beaming program in college football. >> charles: it's phenomenal with so many things they do and how they are getting things done. many people will want to study this program and finds out if science over tradition may start
working for their program. remember, everything is a copycat and people want to follow people who are winning games. oregon will be one. those leading teams. >> gus: david paulson, big game this evening for oregon, a touchdown. he's on the field with our john lynch. >> thank you. you had the big 42-yard touchdown. heckuva way to go out in your last game at autzen stadium. your feelings about being the inaugural pac-12 champions? >> no better feeling. you go out and win the first pac-12 championship game, heading to the rose bowl now, all these fans, just crazy. best experience. >> talk about that rose bowl, the opportunity to get there and play in the big one. >> yeah. you know, playing in the pac-12, it's the big one you shoot for and now we have a chance to go back there. played there a couple years ago and a chance to go back there. real excited. >> david balls has been a great player for the oregon ducks and
gets to finish it off at the rose bowl, does david paulson. >> gus: chip kelly, guiding oregon to 43-6 in three years. 49-31, the final here in eugene. >> charles: the only thing he hasn't done now is win the bcs bowl game. they got beatly ohio state in the rose bowl two years ago. last year, national championship game they got beat at the field goal at the buzzer. you know eventually they are going to get it done. but how about just getting there three straight times. a phenomenal achievement. oregon's chip kelly, they are doing a program.
