UCLA may be without Travis Wear, its best big man, for Sunday's game at USC. Wear, a 6-foot-10 junior, injured his right foot during practice on Saturday. He is listed as doubtful for the game. Wear was returning to the lineup after a concussion when the Bruins and Trojans met the first time in Pac-12 Conference play. USC won the game, 75-71. The Trojans' size hurt the Bruins in that game. USC held a 44-36 edge in rebounding. The Trojans, who have three 7-foot centers, consistently denied UCLA players paths to the basket.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley could look across the city last season and see the perils of staying in school. Former USC quarterback Matt Barkley , whom many thought to be a first-round pick after his junior season, came back for a senior year. The Trojans finished 7-6. Barkley didn't win the Heisman Trophy. He slipped to the fourth round in the NFL draft last spring. A cautionary tale. BOWL TIMELINE: Matchups, schedule and picks Only, all Hundley has to do is look across the locker room to see the upside to playing another season at UCLA.

This is the biggest week of the season for the UCLA football team - USC week. "How much the UCLA-Southern Cal game changes things is amazing," Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley said. "To our fans, this game every year is it. We could do nothing all year and win this game and it would still be a successful season to them. " Yet, this has become less of a 365-day rivalry (366 in leap years) since Jim Mora became UCLA's coach. Rick Neuheisel , UCLA's previous coach, preached that USC was a model to emulate, a response he gave nearly every time he was asked about the rivalry.

Regarding Earl Gustkey's Countdown to 2000 of Nov. 21, noting the USC-Notre Dame game of 1931: I was sitting in Cal Stadium in Berkeley, probably at the Cal-Stanford game. At one point, the public address system announced: "At South Bend, with two minutes to go, Notre Dame 14, Southern California 13." Later, another announcement: "Final score at South Bend. Notre Dame 14--(then, with just the right amount of pause)--Southern California 16." Never in the following 68 years have I experienced the spontaneous outburst of the crowd on that day. Even Bobby Thomson's home run couldn't top it. GEORGE FRENCH Torrance

UCLA Coach Jim Mora has tried to put USC on the back burner all season. Trouble was, the rivalry simmers. It was there every day when he left the house. "Every morning, when I wake up and walk out the front door, there's my neighbor's house with a big USC flag," Mora said. "I drive out and make a left and the house on the right has a gigantic USC flag. It seems like that's what everyone has been talking about for the last week, as much as I have tried to avoid it. " There's no avoiding it now. Mora, hired last December, barrels headlong into his first USC game.

What a great day. It was so much fun tailgating before the USC game, joining Donn and Meg Carper and all my fellow Trojan fans to laugh and laugh at the UCLA Frauds. We stood around a huge bucket of Mary Richardson's chili, which certainly had more kick to it than the Bruins' offense, and talked about what it must be like to be a UCLA fan. That's when everyone started drinking.

Talk about your different drummers. Tiggy plays the kitchen sink. She has it strapped across her hips like a snare drum and bangs at it with sticks, producing a rattle-whompus-Seussian sound, like a junkyard truck crossing the tracks. Nice. One edge of the old stainless steel sink, the one facing out, is broken off and lethal as a switchblade. No worries. Tiggy knows what she's doing. I think. I am marching with the Stanford band, legally known as the Leland Stanford Junior (pause)

Pepper Rodgers had been around football rivalries most of his life. He had grown up in Atlanta and played for Georgia Tech, whose annual game against Georgia has been chronicled in the book "Clean Old-Fashion Hate." He had been an assistant at Florida, coaching against Georgia in a series called "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." Then he came to UCLA. "How different is this one?" he said.

UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks will have ankle surgery Friday, leaving the Bruins without their leading tackler against Virginia Tech in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Kendricks had ankle surgery last summer, which slowed him during training camp. During the season, he battled through back and shoulder injuries. He led the team with 106 tackles, which was the third-most in the Pac-12. BOWL TIMELINE: Matchups, schedule and picks He has not been able to practice since the USC game on Nov. 30.

UCLA vs. USC, the matchups Beat reporters Gary Klein (USC) and Chris Foster (UCLA) analyze the matchups in Saturday's football game between the city rivals: USC run game vs. UCLA run defense Trojans tailback Javorius Allen has scored three touchdowns in three of the last four games. Tre Madden, Ty Isaac and, possibly, Silas Redd and Soma Vainuku also will carry the ball for an offense that has averaged 177 yards rushing behind an improved line. When UCLA's Myles Jack is on defense with Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks and Jordan Zumwalt, it might be difficult to find a better group of linebackers.

Ask the coaches of the high school football teams in The Times' top 25 rankings (and an extra Herrington brother) to make a prediction on the UCLA-USC football game and many are torn. Some are graduates of UCLA or USC, or have wives who graduated from either school, and their prediction could result in retaliation at home. Others have assistants with ties to one or the other school, and that could cause staff turmoil. Most expressed strong feelings of support toward UCLA Coach Jim Mora and USC interim Coach Ed Orgeron.

UCLA's basketball team has been playing in a less-than-half-full Pauley Pavilion through five games this season, with an average announced attendance of 5,673 in the 13,800-seat arena. A possible contributing factor is ticket prices. In a report by Vividseats.com, a secondary ticket broker, UCLA has the sixth highest-priced tickets in all of college basketball, with the median price $95. Kansas is No. 1 at $265, followed by Kentucky at $200, Duke at $179, Gonzaga at $110 and Indiana at $100.

There was an Extra! on the UCLA campus Tuesday. UCLA officials this week took steps to protect statues on campus from USC pranks. The school's bear statue was in a box, as was the statue of former basketball coach John Wooden. So USC students went William Randolph Hearst on UCLA, striking at the fourth estate. USC students, presumably the crosstown ink-stained wretches, hit the UCLA campus early Monday morning, dumping out the Daily Bruin from newspaper racks and leaving UCLA students with the Daily Trojan for their reading pleasure.

It was Nov. 28, 1964, and it was easy to cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish came to the Coliseum with a 9-0 record, a No. 1 national ranking and a Heisman Trophy winner with a rags-to-riches story. It was to be the cherry on top of the hot fudge sundae, a final time to shake down the thunder. Instead, it turned into a game for the ages, a legendary classic between schools that will meet in football Saturday for the 84th time. The shocking and controversial defeat for the Irish happened 48 years ago and remains etched in the minds of thousands of fans, both Irish and Trojans.

UCLA thrives when its offense moves, and does it quickly. Arizona State ranks 16th nationally in fewest yards given up and is 17th against the run. Whether UCLA is able to move the ball Saturday at the Rose Bowl will have a lot to do with which team wins. "The key in college football are the personnel matchups, matching up your guys with who you want to take advantage of," Arizona State Coach Todd Graham said. The Sun Devils' defensive front is "where we have the biggest advantage," he said.

About 1:17 p.m. on a Friday, fall weather finally arrived - rode in on the jet stream, fortunately, because if you have ever tried to get anywhere in L.A. on a Friday afternoon, a car is the last vessel you'd want to use. Half the attendees at our tailgate party arrived by bicycle, the only mode of transit that seems to work in this town anymore. The lack of an NFL franchise makes me feel deprived and fortunate all at once. Deprived because there is no such thing as too much football.
