How can I select only strings in the format XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX where X is any number or any UPPERcase (not lowercase) character?

Some are all-caps, some are not, and this is a varchar field. I want to select only these all-caps UUIDs, excluding the rest.
Currently I’m using the _ wildcard to look for the basic UUID format, but looks like UPPER doesn’t apply to the _ wildcard. Ex.:
SELECT mycolumn FROM mytable t WHERE t.mycolumn like UPPER('________-____-____-____-____________') COLLATE SQL_Latin1_Gene
