ABC and the Pacific 10 Conference announced a $169-million, 10-year football contract extension Tuesday that will run through 2006 and provide Pac-10 schools with $21 million over the next four years they would not have had otherwise. Network and conference officials said a nine-year contract extension was signed in 1992 to carry through 2000. Over the next four seasons, it would have called for a rights fee averaging about $10 million per season. The new extension will bring in $13.

The Pacific 10 Conference officially became the Pac-12 on Friday, the same day the Big Ten went up to 12 teams and the Big 12 shrunk to 10. So goes the landscape of major college sports, and it didn't stop there. Brigham Young, a university with an enrollment of about 34,000, is now part of the West Coast Conference, where no other school has as many as 10,000 students. Utah and Colorado are now members of the Pac-12, and for football they will join UCLA, USC, Arizona and Arizona State in the conference's South Division.

* USC (16-9, 11-5) at WASHINGTON STATE (13-15, 5-11) Time--7. Radio--KYPA (1230, 1220), KGIL (1260, 540). With most experts predicting the Trojans will not make the NCAA tournament, they are hoping a sweep of the Washington schools and a second-place finish in the Pacific 10 Conference will earn them a bid. "If we finish second I don't know how they could ignore us," Coach Henry Bibby said. USC, tied with Arizona for second, trounced what has been an underachieving Cougar team, 106-73, on Jan.

The Pacific 10 Conference has spent more than a year preparing for the moment when it can put its television rights up to bid on the open market for the first time since its expansion. With Fox's exclusive negotiating window expiring Thursday, the conference can shop the rights to some 2,700 events a year and a possible partnership in a Pac-12 network to a bevy of interested media and technology companies. The conference will have 12 teams with the additions of Utah and Colorado, covers one-fifth of the country and is the last major-college property on the market for at least a few years.

Getting the top seeding for the Pacific 10 Conference tournament could be considerably more difficult for UCLA than catching Arizona atop the conference standings, which the Bruins accomplished Saturday at Pauley Pavilion with a 71-49 victory over the Wildcats. The Bruins face a far tougher road than the Wildcats over the final week of the regular season and lag behind their counterparts in the current tiebreaker scenarios. While UCLA travels to play at Washington on Thursday and Washington State on Saturday, Arizona plays host to Oregon State on Thursday and Oregon on Saturday.

When: 1 p.m. Where: Pauley Pavilion. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket. Radio: 570. Records: UCLA 20-8 overall, 11-4 Pacific 10 Conference; Arizona 23-5, 12-3. Update: UCLA Coach Ben Howland calls every game "the most important game of the season," but this time he's not just repeating a cliché. A Bruins victory would move them into a first-place tie atop the Pac-10 standings alongside Arizona, though the Wildcats have the more forgiving schedule during the final week of the regular season; Arizona plays host to the Oregon schools while UCLA hits the road to play at Washington and Washington State.

UCLA next vs. Arizona, Saturday at Pauley Pavilion, 1 p.m., Prime Ticket ? The final game at Pauley Pavilion before the facility closes for interior renovations could have Pacific 10 Conference title implications for the Bruins and the Wildcats. Arizona outclassed UCLA with its superior quickness and athleticism last month during an 85-74 victory in Tucson in which sophomore forward Derrick Williams scored 22 points. ? Ben Bolch

It's goodbye, for now. UCLA bids farewell Saturday to its basketball home of the last 46 years, with plans to return to Pauley Pavilion after renovations are completed in the fall of 2012. In a fortuitous development, the Bruins will also get a chance to say hello to first place in the Pacific 10 Conference. USC's 65-57 upset of No. 10 Arizona on Thursday moved UCLA (20-8, 11-4 Pac-10) to within a game of the Wildcats (23-5, 12-3) heading into the Bruins' home finale against the conference leaders.

UCLA's defense was in a zone, and Ben Howland couldn't have been happier. The coach who abhors zone defenses was thrilled when his Bruins went into lockdown mode with their trademark man-to-man scheme Thursday night at Pauley Pavilion, overcoming a sluggish start to pull away for a 71-53 victory over Arizona State. An array of steals, strips and blocks by UCLA over the final 91/2 minutes of the first half triggered a 30-8 run that transformed a 12-point deficit into a 10-point halftime lead.

The score was close, the time running out, the crowd on its feet, the building rumbling and rocking. But for USC, its exhilarating, back-and-forth second half Thursday against Arizona State at Wells Fargo Arena, where 7,638 raucous fans bore down, was nothing new. "It kind of looked familiar," junior guard Jio Fontan said. It should have. Entering Thursday, USC had played in nine games decided by six or fewer points this season. And seven had been losses, four on the game's final possession.

Lazeric Jones wished he was dreaming when an assistant coach delivered a wake-up knock on his dorm room door shortly before 8 Saturday morning. "I didn't like it too well," the UCLA point guard said. A few hours later, the Bruins were still feeling groggy. "I kind of felt it in warmups," junior guard Malcolm Lee said. "I was a little sluggish. " UCLA's malaise carried over to the first 10 minutes of a rare late-morning game at Pauley Pavilion. Stanford took a 14-point lead, appearing poised to hand the Bruins a nationally televised flogging on their home court.
