Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

UCLA vs USC

Rival Team: USC Trojans

The term cross-town rivalry doesn’t accurately how interconnected these two fan bases are and thus the intensity of this annual rivalry. The two schools are both located in the city of Los Angeles with just twelve miles separating the two campuses. During a few seasons in the 1980s the two schools both played their home games at the LA Coliseum, and as a result, when they played each other both teams wore their home uniforms. This tradition was revived in 2008 despite the fact the two schools no longer share a venue. The winner of this annual matchup has been awarded the Victory Bell since 1941. USC leading the trophy series 39-31-4 although UCLA has won the last two meetings.

UCLA vs Cal

Rival Team: California Golden Bears

UCLA was originally founded as a branch of the University of California, so this rivalry takes the form of a sibling rivalry. The week UCLA plays Cal is known as ‘Cal Week’ and the two schools usually also play each other in other fall sports during this week. The two programs have played every year since 1939, with UCLA leading the all-time series 52-32-1.
