Stanford is firmly in the driver's seat at the Pac-12 Championship, using a 7-over 367 on Saturday to take an eye-opening 21-shot lead over Cal heading into Sunday's final round at The Gallery at Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz.

The Cardinal had a six-shot lead heading into Saturday's third round, but Cal struggled to a 22-over 382 in giving Stanford the control. The Golden Bears remain in second, with Washington three shots behind them.

Stanford's Patrick Rodgers, who is set to go pro after the NCAAs, is looking to exit in style, as he has a five-shot lead heading into the final 18 holes. Rodgers is two wins shy of Tiger Woods' school record of 11.

USC's Paul Smith is in second, Washington's Cheng-Tsung Pan is six shots back at 1 under and Stanford's Cameron Wilson and Cal's Brandon Hagy are at even par.
