I can’t say I ever felt like the USC-UCLA rivalry was too intense since Clay Helton took over.
But for numerous reasons, including COVID-19, this week is really low energy by Crosstown Rivalry.
So I will run a few photos from the past.
So let’s remember 1957, when USC sabotaged a UCLA card stunt in 1957 by sneaking an “SC” into it.
Also, in the 1950’s, UCLA reportedly had a card stunt that offered the middle finger to USC fans.
Here’s David Bell after his game-winning field goal in 2000.
And here’s the 1977 game, with Playboy All-American Walt Underwood (No. 95) and UCLA QB Rick Bashore (No. 11). USC wo, 29-27.
