USC Clinches Crosstown Cup over UCLA

The Crosstown Cup belongs to USC once more when the Trojans earned first place for the 10th time in 15 years after defeating UCLA  in women’s rowing, men’s golf, and women’s track, reported usctrojans.com.

The SoCal BMW Crosstown Cup is awarded annually to the athletic department with the most success  facing each other in match ups in all sports during the academic year. For each of the 19 men’s and women’s sports, there are 10 points available, explained bmwcrosstowncup.com.

That earned the Trojans 115 points while the Bruins earned 70. 100 points were needed to clinch the 2015-2016 version of the Crosstown Cup, stated usctrojans.com.

“Congratulations to all of our student-athletes and coaches for their efforts and performances in helping USC claim its 10th SoCal BMW Crosstown Cup,” USC athletic director Pat Haden explained.

“The USC-UCLA rivalry is the best in college athletics, with two universities of such noted academic and athletic excellence sharing the same city,” added Haden. “This Crosstown Cup competition means so much to both schools and to our fans. On behalf of Trojans everywhere, I am proud to say that USC is once again the Crosstown Cup champion.”

The men and women of Troy regained the cup after losing it in 2014-2015. From 2007-2012, USC has won the Crosstown Cup five years in a row, but UCLA earned it in 2012-2013 and 2014-2015. With all said, USC has won the trophy 10 times while it has existed 15 years, wrote reignoftroy.com.
