The rivalry between USC and UCLA has existed as long as the universities themselves have. It is intensified this week, days before the big USC/UCLA football game on Saturday. The game will take place at UCLA this year. During the week prior, Trojan Knights — those dedicated to upholding university tradition at USC — guard the wrapped up statues 24/7. The UCLA statues are similarly covered, especially after an unidentified person or group of people spraypainted “SC RUNS LA” on the Bruin statue. Trojan Knights and a member of the UCLA Community Programs Office speak out about school spirit and the famed rivalry.
