For the second straight year, the Crosstown Cup will remain in Westwood!

With the highest score ever, UCLA smoked Southern Cal in the Crosstown Cup competition with a final score of 115-75. In the last four years, UCLA has won the cup three times.

The Bruins and the Trojans have teams that match up in 19 sports, and head to head competitions are worth 10 points each. In a case where the two schools do not have a head to head match up, the higher finisher in the conference will receive the points. If match ups are split, the points are also split (ie.: women’s volleyball).

100 points needed to clinch the Crosstown Cup trophy

Final Totals: UCLA 115, USC 75

The Crosstown Cup competition has taken a few forms. The official competition began in the 2001-2002 school year, but we all know the rivalry is almost a century old. The current scoring system was implemented in the 2014-2015 season, and UCLA has won the cup four times in the last six years.

Go Bruins!
