UCLA blowing out USC in basketball is no surprise—UCLA is an all-time great program while the Trojans are still trying to get off of the ground under new head coach Andy Enfield. What IS new in this crosstown rivalry is Bruins fans holding football over their rivals’ heads:
Jim Mora’s UCLA football program had similar success against USC this year, knocking off the Trojans 35-14 at the Coliseum. UCLA has had a resurgence under Mora, who has won each of his first two games against USC, going 19-8. In the four previous years under former coach and current music sensation Rick Neuheisel, the Bruins accumulated a 21-30 record.
Needless to say, it’s been a good week for Bruins fans. Earlier this week they learned that Mora would not be taking the coveted job at Texas, and today they learned that star quarterback Brett Hundley is returning for another year, and they hang triple digits on the Trojans on the hardwood.

The University of Texas is getting a lot of thanks but no thanks in their search for new head football coach. On Friday the names of Art Briles and Jim Mora were added to the not interested list.
Perhaps the Longhorns should have just kept Mack Brown after-all.
“It is always flattering when someone is interested in you. But I am committed to being the UCLA coach.”
This afternoon, the UCLA Bruins blew out rival USC in Pauley Pavilion in the first L.A. showdown between Steve Alford and Andy Enfield. The result of the game was never in doubt — perhaps it was because the Trojans couldn’t keep up with the fresh young bodies of UCLA that they got run off of the floor:
