ESPNU Pac-12 Logo Tournament: Championship Round

Posted by Connor Pelton on November 15th, 2011

Over the past two weeks we have whittled down the field from 12 logos to two. Amazingly, the two that Drew and I chose for the top two seeds (The Beaver and Bruin) have advanced to the final! Voting will go all week long and then we will crown the winner. Here we go!

#1 Oregon State vs #2 UCLA

Connor’s thoughts:
Not much to say about this other than it’s a great matchup. I’ll take the Bruin because of everything I’ve mentioned before; the punctured football, the bear tracks, it’s just all too much for the Beaver.

Drew’s thoughts: Given the Bruins’ struggles on the football field of late (not that their basketball exploits have been terrific), the football in the ESPNU logo turns me off a bit. Plus, the OSU logo is just a more clever take all the way around. I’ll take the favorite in the all-chalk final.

#9 Colorado vs #1 Oregon State

Connor’s thoughts: I still don’t get what all the fuss with the Buffalo is about, but apparently I’m in the minority there.

ESPN really showed some creativity and effort there, so I’m taking the Beaver.

Drew’s thoughts: OSU is our number one seed, and while that’s a cool logo, the Buffalo looks a little more intimidating. Welcome to the Pac-12 Colorado…
