- UCLA 38, USC 28: Bruins defeat Trojans in battle of L.A.

A dance party erupted in the UCLA locker room, one filled with primal screams and sprayed Sprite streams. The team rule, as it has been all season, allots 24 hours for celebration. Coming off their biggest win in years, the No. 17 Bruins were going to use each and every one of them.

- UCLA beats USC to end college football monopoly in Los Angeles:

UCLA can say the monopoly is over, and now it’s really true. Jim Mora didn’t want to go there, but he doesn’t have to because it goes without saying. When asked point blank, Mora paused, smirked, said he didn’t know and glanced in another reporter’s direction so he could answer something else. He wanted to say it, but he didn’t. We know.

Clint Hamblin said he went to Lowe’s, bought a chunk of sod for $3.50, flung it over his shoulder, had his fiancé, Kara, spray paint the UCLA script logo into it, and then tacked it to a piece of plywood.

UCLA vs. USC: HC & QB edition

Try Jim Mora and Lane Kiffin

They own big personalities, perfect for staying relevant in Los Angeles. They like to talk, which adds to the drama of this rivalry. Or any old regular week in the season.

Or Brett Hundley and Matt Barkley, freshman edition …

“Brett plays with a lot of poise,” Mora said. “He’s able to put a good play or bad play behind him and move on. I don’t know Matt Barkley personally, but when I watch him play and watch him on TV, he’s probably a similar type of guy. I have a lot of respect for him. I think he’s a great quarterback who’s got a tremendous future in the NFL.”

Or if you’d rather stick with just UCLA, John Barnes’ unbelievable heroics from two decades back.
