USC vs. UCLA: Pregame sights, sounds, and tweets

Jeff Gross

A few quick pregame thoughts from both UCLA and USC, as well as a sign from ESPN's College Gameday Saturday morning in Eugene.

With the battle for the Victory Bell just a few hours away, the USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins are getting ready for their rivalry game at the Rose Bowl. But before the noon kickoff, players and fans alike were getting ready for the game.

In a rainy Pasadena, parking lots opened at 6 a.m. PT, with the Fan Zone at the Rose Bowl starting at 8 a.m. PT. The Bruin walk will take place at 9:30, while gates open at 10:30 a.m. PT.

ESPN College Gameday this morning was in Eugene, home of the other huge Pac-12 battle on Saturday, between Stanford and Oregon. Ducks fans had some fun with the USC deflated ball controversy against Oregon, at Lane Kiffin's (or Kiffen, if you prefer) expense, per the great 30FPS:
