USC will face UCLA at the Coliseum next Saturday in its final regular-season game of the year.

The Pac-12 announced on Sunday that the game, which had initially been held for a six-day selection by network partners, will kick off at 12:30 p.m. PT on ABC. It’ll be a showcase window for the battle of L.A.

Though the game won’t have the same kind of spice it could have.

USC lost to Oregon Saturday night in Eugene, 36-27, to fall out of the Pac-12 title race. A year after eight Pac-12 wins and an appearance in the league’s title game, Lincoln Riley’s group was touted as a College Football Playoff contender. But the Trojans have lost four of their last five games and are limping down the stretch.

UCLA isn’t in any better shape.

The Bruins lost 17-7 at home to an Arizona State team held together by duct tape and faith. A running back and a tight end lined up at quarterback for the Sun Devils throughout the game as, on the other side, UCLA consistently found ways to short-circuit in scoring positions.

UCLA dropped its second consecutive game to fall to 6-4 as the buzz around Chip Kelly’s future grew louder.

As strenuous as either situation may be, beating an L.A. rival to close the season can calm the waters for one of these programs. USC took last year’s meeting 48-45. UCLA dominated the year before that.
