USC 17, UCLA 7 Nov. 20, 1999, at the Coliseum Setup: For only the fourth time in the history of the series and the first time since 1941, USC (4-6) and UCLA (4-6) both came into the game with losing records. Both teams were also without their top quarterbacks -- the Trojans' Carson Palmer and the Bruins' Cory Paus -- because of broken collarbones. Although UCLA had an eight-game winning streak in the series that was the longest in the history of the rivalry, USC tailback Chad Morton guaranteed a victory over the Bruins -- in August.

UCLA already has one stop against USC, and it's still several days until Saturday's Pac-12 Conference football showdown at the Rose Bowl. The drum major for USC's band will not be allowed to stab his sword into the UCLA logo at midfield during its traditional pregame performance. The Trojans drum major has been planting his sword in that way at games home and away dating back to the 1970s. USC was told that if the sword is planted, the Trojans band will not be allowed to perform at halftime, a person in the UCLA athletic department confirmed.

MUSIC Live up to the instrumental reputation of bassist-composer Charles Mingus? There's a tall order for any group. But Mingus Dynasty pulls it off with an adventurous spirit and devotion to Mingus' huge catalog (and the blessing of the legend's wife, Sue, who helped assemble the group). Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Fri. $20 to $60. http://www.uclalive.org

There may be no more dapper ensemble than Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester. The combo drinks deep from flapper-era jazz, Weimar Berlin and Irving Berlin alike for a sound both preserved in amber and entirely entrancing. The combo also has a cracking sense of humor — the banter is as witty as the arrangements. Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Thu. $25 to $80. http://www.uclalive.org.

The apple doesn't run far from the tree. Running back Paul Perkins and quarterback Brett Hundley, UCLA's All-Chandler (Ariz.) High backfield, disagree about one thing: Who's faster. They met as children, not far removed from midday naps, while running for the Arizona Cheetahs Track Club. "I was faster," Hundley says. Says Perkins: "What? He's lying. He's definitely lying. " And now … "I can still put up a race," Hundley says. Says Perkins: "He's fast. He's not that fast.
