The annual USC-UCLA cross-town rivalry football game will kick off at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Rose Bowl, USC announced Sunday.
The Trojans will be coming off a rare Sunday game against Washington State at the Coliseum, which was postponed to allow for the return of Trojan players who are in isolation due to COVID-19 positive tests or in quarantine as a result of contact tracing. The Trojans trounced Washington State, 38-13, to go 4-0 for the coronavirus truncated season.
The Bruins are 3-2 on the season after beating Arizona State, 25-18, on Saturday night in Tempe, Arizona.
USC leads the all-time series between the schools, 48-32, with seven ties. The Trojans won last year’s game, 52-35, at the Coliseum.
Saturday’s game will be televised on ABC as the coronavirus-emptied stands won’t allow most spectators.
