    UCLA 21
    USC 20


    UCLA added another chapter to this storied rivalry with an improbable upset over heavily favored USC at the Coliseum on Saturday in order to notch their 6th victory and a likely bowl game. The Bruins' chances of reaching the postseason looked dim after a close loss at Stanford several weeks ago, as it meant that they would need to steal a game at either USC or Notre Dame in order to reach 6 wins.

    UCLA came back from a 20-7 deficit when it looked as if USC was ready to run away with the game, as they scored twice in the 3rd quarter. Bruins fans had to hold their breath as USC had several chances to pull out the victory in the final minutes. USC's D.J. Morgan had over 150 yards rushing on the day, but was stopped on a 3rd-and-short with just over a minute left. A 50 yard field goal attempt by USC bounced off the crossbar. UCLA was unable to convert a first down or run a lot of time off the clock and were forced to punt. However, a badly shanked punt only pushed the Trojans about 20 yards back, and UCLA had to come up with another defensive stop in order to seal the victory.

    UCLA heads to South Bend next week to try to score another upset and improve their bowl standing. Possible destinations include the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco and the St. Petersburg bowl in Florida.
