Saturday’s USC vs. UCLA rivalry will be for all of the marbles in the Pac-12 South, as both teams enter with even records in conference and hold tiebreakers over Utah.
The Trojans are looking for a win to end the Bruins’ three-game winning streak, as well as clinch a spot in their first ever Pac-12 Championship Game. UCLA has twice gone to the conference’s final game, though did so in 2011 on behalf of USC, who was sanctioned.
Kick off is set for 12:30 p.m. on ABC or ESPN2 depending on your region, with Sean McDonough on the call. Chris Spielman will provide color analysis while Todd McShay will handle reports from the sideline.
Radio listeners can also catch the national broadcast on ESPN Radio with Roxy Berstein along with former UCLA quarterback Tom Ramsey.
As usual, Pete Arbogast will handle the local radio broadcast on 710 ESPNLA, the official home of the Trojans in Los Angeles. John Jackson joins him as the color commentator with Jordan Moore on the sidelines.
For those outside the Los Angeles area, the game will also be aired in Ontario, San Bernardino County and the Inland Empire on 1510 KSPA-AM, in Palm Springs on 1010 KXPS-AM, in Barstow on 1230 KSZL-AM, in Las Vegas on 1400 KSHP-AM, in Fresno on 96.7 KALZ-FM and in Visalia on 1400 KRZR-AM.
