USC vs. UCLA: Rain forecast for Rose Bowl

Stephen Dunn

USC and UCLA have played one another in rain just twice in their storied history, with the Bruins prevailing each time. There is rain in the forecast for the Rose Bowl on Saturday afternoon.

The picturesque backdrop of the Arroyo Seco mountains at the Rose Bowl will likely be dampened, literally on Saturday afternoon, but that shouldn't remove any luster from the crosstown rivalry between the No. 18 USC Trojans and No. 17 UCLA Bruins in their battle of the Victory Bell.

Maybe Mother Nature can stop Marqise Lee.

There has been rain drizzling at the Rose Bowl for most of the morning, and there is between a 35-65% chance of rain during the game. If it does rain Saturday at the Rose Bowl, it will mark just the third game in the series (which dates back to 1929) played in rain. If history repeats itself, the Bruins will be happy.

In 1946, UCLA topped USC 13-6, and in 1961 the Bruins beat the Trojans 10-7.

But rain or shine, Saturday should feature a good game between these crosstown rivals. The 12 p.m. PT kickoff will be televised by Fox.
