College football Week 9 in the L.A. TV market: Dress as a Trojan or Bruin for Halloween, ’cause no one’s using the unis

1342889142425_6058980For the first time, and last time, this college football season, neither USC nor UCLA will play a game on Saturday.
USC’s excuse: It has a pre-determined date on Thursday night against Cal at the Coliseum (7:30 p.m., ESPN, Mike Patrick, Ed Cunningham, Dr. Jerry Punch),
UCLA’s excuse: It has a bye week.
This allows fans of both the Trojans and Bruins to focus on how AP No. 4 Washington fares at AP No. 17 Utah in Salt Lake City on Saturday and take a shot (disallowed in all of Utah) every time Gus Johnson tries to make a clever reference about Mormons.
It’s where ESPN’s College GameDay will land as well before Kirk Herbstreit is required to go to Florida State for the Saturday prime-time contest.
