The crosstown rivalry between our two campuses, particularly in the weeks leading up to the UCLA”“USC football game, is a great tradition in college sports. But even as we root against each other on the field, UCLA and USC stand united in our common belief that this weekend’s game should be a safe, respectful and fun experience for everyone.
UCLA and USC are both world-renowned research universities, equally proud to call Los Angeles home. We ask that Bruins and Trojans alike make a commitment to display the very best UCLA and USC spirit. Please remember that while you alone are responsible for your actions, you can set a positive example for others. Sportsmanship is every bit as important on the field as off. Respecting those around you demonstrates respect for yourself and for your university.
People all across Los Angeles and the nation will be watching the big game. We trust all of you to demonstrate the best of what it means to be a Bruin or a Trojan.
So have a great time Saturday. Go Bruins! And fight on, Trojans!
