EUGENE, Ore. -- The Oregon Ducks don't get the breather they've had in years past after the regular-season finale against rival Oregon State.

On Sunday morning they were back on the practice field to prepare for the inaugural Pac-12 conference championship game against UCLA.

The No. 8 Ducks and the Bruins (6-6, 5-4) have a short week to get ready for Friday evening's game at Autzen Stadium. The conference title game is new this season after the league expanded to 12 teams.

Oregon (10-2, 8-1) clinched the new North Division with a 49-21 victory over the Beavers in the 115th Civil War. The victory also moved the team up a spot in the AP Top 25 released Sunday.
