UCLA 38, USC 28

ucla-beats-usc-2012-espn.jpgAnother year of the cross-city football rivalry is in the books. Yes, that's right: UCLA won. The Bruins intercepted the first Trojan pass of the game, scored a few plays later and built a 17-0 lead in the first quarter. UCLA is now 9-2 and wins the southern Pac-12 title, the Trojans are 7-4. It's UCLA's first win over USC since 2006.
