It's a rivalry that dates back to 1929. The original Battle Los Angeles. The annual showdown that splits a city apart.
The USC campus is decked out in cardinal and gold, Tommy Trojan and Traveler are securely wrapped up in tape and cutdown bears are being burned in the quad.
Meanwhile on Howard Jones, the Trojan football team is gearing up to face off against the Bruins on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. PT. But before kick off, the USC team talked about what the rivalry means for them.
