USC Vs. UCLA: Ending Their Season At Rose Bowl, Just Not As They Would Like

The Victory Bell is always important to both the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans, but some years seem less important than others. This is one of those years. The 4-7 Bruins host the 7-5 Trojans tonight at the Rose Bowl in the season finale for both teams. Today is the first time since 2000 that both USC and UCLA are unranked in their meeting. USC holds an 11-6-4 advantage against UCLA when both teams are unranked.

USC leads the all-time series 44-28-7, and has won 10 of the last 11 meetings. UCLA has won eight of the 14 meetings at the Rose Bowl. Here are the last five games in the series:

  • 2009: at AP No. 24 USC 28, UCLA 7
  • 2008: No. 5 USC 28, at UCLA 7
  • 2007: at No. 8 USC 24, UCLA 7
  • 2006: at UCLA 13, No. 2 USC 9
  • 2005: at No. 1 USC 66, No. 11 UCLA 19

The Trojans have held the Bruins to seven points in each of the last three meetings, and have held UCLA to under 20 points in five straight games. Tonight's 7:30 p.m. PST game will be televised on Prime Ticket. Barry Tompkins, Petros Papadakis, and Rebecca Haarlow are on the call.
