Wouldn’t it be just a great day for USC to ruin their most hated rivals season by putting them out of the first PAC 12 championship game and most likely getting their head coach fired? Well it can all happen this week if the Trojans beat UCLA in the battle for the victory bell.
USC has had a great year and can have an opportunity to win ten games in a season for the first time in two years. UCLA has a chance to clinch the PAC 12 south division and a shot to win the PAC 12 with a win over USC The Bruins head coach can almost insure his job if they win and get out of the hot seat he’s been in all year long. UCLA has been up and down all year and you really can never predict how the they are going to play in the upcoming week.
USC has dominated as of late winning 9 out of the last 10 games. Coach Neuheisel thinks a win by his team can restore the rivalry and bring it back what is use to be when he played for the Bruins in the 80′s. This is one of the most storied college football rivalries in history and for the first time in a while a win means somthing more than just bragging rights. Plenty of recruits that are considering both teams are watching this game and this may be a part of who they will pick when it comes to signing day. With the Trojans only able to give 15 scholarships for the next 3 years it will be crucial for UCLA to take advantage of this for the future of the program.
The game preview and breakdown of both teams and keys to the game will be posted Friday.
I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and spend time with your family.
