The 1980’s and 1990’s also saw great success for UCLA under coach Terry Donahue, going to 13 bowl games and winning 8 bowls in a row. Some of the football greats to wear the True Blue and Gold include Troy Aikman, Marcedes Lewis, Jimmy Johnson, Carnell Lake, and Ken Norton Jr., just to name a few.

2015 UCLA Season Preview
UCLA’s 2nd season under Jim Mora saw the Bruins move closer to the top of the Pac-12. The team beat crosstown rival USC and dominated Virginia Tech in the Sun Bowl. The anticipation for the 2014 season is as high as it has been in almost a decade for the Bruins. Returning quarterback Brett Hundley is a preseason Heisman candidate and will have plenty of weapons to dish the ball to, including wide receivers Devin Fuller and Jordan Payton. The defense looks to be equally as stout and will be anchored by seniors Anthony Jefferson and Eric Kendricks. The Bruins will fight their way through one of the most exciting schedules on the West Coast. UCLA has two big non-conference games at Virginia, and against Texas in Dallas. In the Pac-12 the Bruins will take on the other 3 top ranked programs in the conference Oregon, USC, and Stanford. If Jim Mora and company can make it through this schedule without a hiccup, there will be no doubt that they will be present in the inaugural college football playoff.

A rivalry that divides one of the biggest cities in the country, USC and UCLA are only 10 miles apart geographically but are on two opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to everything else.
