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.
