It seems like all the good Crosstown Rivalry quotes are coming from UCLA this week.
Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson said UCLA wants to break 60 points vs. USC. Did Thompson-Robinson say if that would be enough to win the game?
I’m going 63-62, someone.
UCLA ranks 9th in the Pac-12 in pass defense. USC ranks 8th in rush defense.
- USC is ranked No. 7 in the College Football Playoff rankings. It’s hilarious that some fans are now saying they don’t want the Trojans to make the CFP Final Four because it would be too difficult. Isn’t the whole point of being a Trojan that you want to compete to be the best?
- USC defeated Vermont, 59-57, at the Galen Center on Tuesday night before 1,838. Vermont lost to Cal State Fullerton, 94-85, on Sunday.
The culprit again for the Trojans was 3-point shooting: USC was 3 for 16. Drew Peterson led USC with 20 points.
- Isaiah Collier, who is a consensus top-five player in the nation, will announce his college choice today. USC, Michigan and Cincinnati are the finalists for the point guard from Marietta, Ga.
- This wasn’t a great season for kick off times at the Coliseum. The earliest kick off was the season-opener vs. Rice at 3 p.m. Naturally that was the hottest day of the season.
