For USC fans, Saturday night at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum was the perfect ending to the 2011 season as the Trojans defeated their crosstown rivals 50-0.
For UCLA fans, they were left wishing their season was over, but the Pac-12 South “champs” will travel to Oregon for an opportunity to play in the 2012 Rose Bowl.
It was one of those games where the details don’t even end up mattering all that much. Sure, USC quarterback Matt Barkley put up gaudy numbers. Even Kevin Prince had, statistically, one of his more productive passing games. Usually, there’s some silver lining to be found in the numbers. Here, though, only one thing matters.
