USC falls to UCLA in Track


Well, this is disappointing...

The number five was the common denominator Saturday for the UCLA men's and women's track and field teams.

The men's team completed a perfect dual-meet season with an 85-78 upset of No. 9 USC, with the women's team ending a five-year losing streak with a 90-73 win over the No. 23 Trojans at Loker Stadium.

It's the first time since 2006 both Bruin teams swept the annual dual meet and the first time since 2005 both achieved the feat on the road.

UCLA men's team swept three distance races and three field events, including the pole vault, shot put and discus.

While the sweep is disappointing, Bryshon Nellum had a great day...

USC's Bryshon Nellum and Aaron Brown were the men's individual stars Saturday at the USC-UCLA dual track meet at Loker Stadium.

Nellum won the 200-meter dash, something new for the 2012 Olympian, in a time of 20.37 seconds, and he won the 400, his specialty, in 46.26. Aaron Brown won the 100 in 10.24 and led the 400 relay team to a win over UCLA in 40.18 seconds.

Seems like a hundred years ago that Nellum was shot....he has come a long way!
