No. 23 USC hosts No. 22 UCLA on Thanksgiving weekend in the 83rd renewal of the famous crosstown rivalry. The Trojans are in search of their second 10-win season in the past three years (and its 25th overall) and although it is the 22nd time that UCLA enters the game ranked higher than USC, the series outcome is even when both teams come in ranked.
For a senior class that has lived through two years of sanctions, a change in coaching, and the beginning of a new era without Pete Carroll, this final week of practice culminated in rather celebratory and all-encompassing fashion.
