This week No. 17 ranked UCLA will take on No. 18 ranked USC in a battle of crosstown rivals. Having already lost three games this year (all Pac-12), the latter squad is in desperate need of a victory. UCLA, meanwhile, is relishing the prospect of a.) banishing the Trojans further down the top 25 and b.) avenging last year’s embarrassing 50-0 loss.
Given everything that is on the line, you can understand why fans of both schools are taking this weekend’s showdown very seriously. How seriously? Well, a picture is worth a thousand words.
And if that one is worth a thousand words, this one is worth at least two:
It’s going to be an interesting weekend.
