UCLA Bruins vs. USC Trojans
October 1, 2011 @ 12:00 AM - November 22, 2011 @ 12:00 AM
With the change of seasons the air hums with the murmur of tailgate parties from the Rose Bowl to the Coliseum, as the UCLA Bruins and the USC Trojans begin their Pac-12 schedule. The hapless Bruins (4-8 last year) go into September without a starting quarterback, while the powerful Trojans, led by Matt Barkley, are still barred from bowl-game play because of a gift scandal that cost, among other things, Reggie Bush his Heisman. A bowl game (any bowl game) looms large for UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel, who some think will lose his job without one. Between now and the big crosstown clash of the two teams in November stretches an autumn full of hope and surprise. More information here and here.
