USC’s Kevin Downey Jr. (#84) goes up high to try and stop UCLA Quarterback Brett Hundley (#17) who ran for 80 yards and two touchdowns during the victory Saturday night at the Coliseum. The Bruins beat the Trojans 34-14.
Within days of the loss USC announced former assistant coach Steve Sarkisian as its newest head football coach. UCLA also secured its head coach Jim Mora and athletic director Dan Guerrero in a six-year contract extension following the game Tuesday.
UCLA finished the season with a 6-3 record while USC finished at 6-4 making it possible for both teams to play during one of the Championship bowl games, which will be announced next week.
