Bruins. Trojans. At the Rose Bowl. The winner gets the Victory Bell. This is what college football is all about. It doesn’t get much better than this, except, of course, in person. And, that’s the one thing that will be missing from the 90th iteration of the L.A. City Championship.
And, even though the Trojans are undefeated, there is reason for optimism among Bruin fans as UCLA has been playing better this season than any other time under Chip Kelly. That sets up today’s game with the makings of one for the ages.
You know the type of game I’m talking about — the kind where every fan says they were there, even if they weren’t. Well, 20 years from now, someone claims to have been there when Demetric Felton broke it loose for the game-winning touchdown, at least you’ll be able to know they’re lying.
Let’s look at the game time weather forecast.
It will be a partly cloudy today in Pasadena and the temperature will be about 63° degrees at kickoff. Sunset will occur at 4:43 pm, just minutes after kickoff.
It will cool off a little as the game progresses. The temperature should be about 60° around halftime and will drop into the upper 50s by the end of the game.

Why do they keep calling *$c a "school"? That's awfully generous.
Not sure what's going on with Softball. They cancelled the Mary Nutter and St Pete's tournament
Let's go, Bruins!!
On D first. Here we go!
SUC coming out passing
Saw a hold
They got the hold
INT!!!! Q Lake with the pick!!!!!
QB stared at his target the whole way.
Terrible throw, right into the defender-- I'd like to see more of those!
Which DTR shows up?
That was NOT targeting? Um, okay. That's exactly not the rule, but whatever.
Crap! We don't need to start with penalties on O -_-
Yikes, DTR was not ready for that.
Offense needs to settle down-- that penalty and then the snap no bueno
Urg. 3 and out, hurt right off the bat by the holding penalty
Goforth was a recruit we lost. Dad Randall played for us
Off topic, but love that Pulp Fiction commercial by Capitol One!
Big TFL by Knight!
We need to put more pressure on Slovic
I like our defense this year. Finally we seem quick.
WTF?? Way too much time for Slovic-- and then we cannot even take him down on the run (we hit each other instead smdh)
Manoa got big over the summer!!
Great D, Manoa knocking that ball outta the air!!
Did they say $c's punter played pro Australian rules football for 8 years? How old is that guy?
Move the chains!!!
First down let's goooooo
Great patience by DTR on that pass to Dulcich. Perfect.
Great job by DTR, staying with it when D in his face
DTR not automatically running backwards. Progress.
was that a missed assignment?
Another first let's goooooo
Second effort by Phillips - sweet!
Chipping away on this drive. Very methodical simple stuff so far.
Cmon, don't mess with our players in front of our bench!
Look at those wide receivers battling on the sideline lol
Heavy run by Brown!
U.C.L.A. fight fight fight
Is Fernea really that fast or are they that slow?? Woo !!!
