Two years ago, the last time USC and UCLA met at the Coliseum, a crowd of 7,804 watched the game, the second highest attendance for a non-NCAA Tournament women’s soccer game.
The record isn’t much more than that – 8,204 – and USC officials are hoping to break the mark at the 7 p.m. game Friday between the No. 23-ranked Trojans (8-4-3, 1-2-1 Pac-10) and the No. 19-ranked Bruins (9-5-1, 2-2).
The game features UCLA striker Sydney Leroux, the U.S. Under-20 star who leads the Bruins in scoring with nine goals. That’s also good for third in the Pac-10.
Admission is free for USC students, $3 for a group of 10 or more and $5 regular admission for adults. The first 2,500 fans through the gates receive a free commemorative scarf. Call 213-740-1244 for tickets.
