The 2013 Battle for Los Angeles is over, and for the second year in a row the Victory Bell will be painted Bruin Blue. USC fell to crosstown rival UCLA 35-14 on Saturday in a lackluster all-around performance by the Trojans.
Trojan tight end Xavier Grimble had USC's only touch down in the second half, but it wasn't enough to energize the offense.
USC moves to 6-2 under interim head coach Ed Orgeron, with the two losses coming to the Trojans' biggest rivals--Notre Dame and UCLA. Still, Grimble says that Orgeron should take over the head coaching job permanently.
"If anybody is up for the job, it should be him. That's what the players want," said Grimble.
Now done with their regular season, the Trojans will move forward preparing for their post-season bowl game.
