In my column today, I talk about how the Crosstown Rivalry needs a boost from a Sam Darnold-Josh Rosen matchup.
Excerpt: That is the sliver of hope for an attractive game. It’s not much, but what else do you want when Clay Helton and Jim Mora are involved? Can anyone remember the last thrilling game in the series? USC won, 38-35, in 2000. UCLA won in double overtime, 48-41, in 1996. If Darnold-Rosen can produce some drama, it will exceed the low expectations.
