The team’s past four Big West championship games — including one loss — were all close.

The past three seasons have seen USC enter its rivalry game against UCLA with its Pac-12 South championship aspirations also at stake.
Last season, the Trojans defeated the Bruins to stay in contention behind Colorado in the race, before entering the final weekend of the regular season. When they prevailed in 2015, their victory clinched the division.
