USC's Drew Peterson will try to help the Trojans beat the Bruins on Saturday at 7 p.m. at USC.

There will be two big games played in Los Angeles this weekend. The Rams with battle the Bengals in the Super Bowl at 3:30 p.m. at SoFi Stadium in the biggest game on Sunday and UCLA will travel to lock horns with USC at the Galen Center on Saturday at 7 p.m. Obviously you really can't compare the Super Bowl with a college basketball game but to UCLA and USC fans it's their super game every time the two schools play each other.

UCLA's Tyger Campbell drives to the basket while teammate Myles Johnson moves in to rebound. Both players will be in action against USC on Saturday.

This will be the first of two meetings that will feature an intense matchup between two evenly matched teams. UCLA is in second place in the Pac-12 with a conference record of 9-4 and an overall record of 17-4. USC's conference record is 9-4 and 20-4 overall. The Trojans are in fifth place in the Pac-12 conference.

The Trojans are led by big man Isaiah Mobley and guards Drew Peterson and Boogie Ellis. The Trojans appear to have a deeper roster than the Bruins and they are one of the tallest teams in the country. If the Trojans play up to their capabilities, they are a hard team to beat. They have a more talented team than the Bruins but that's on paper.

The Bruins are led by guards Johnny Juzang, Jamie Jaquez Jr. and Tyger Campbell. UCLA really plays hard most of the time on offense and defense they play smart basketball.

Both teams are well coached, but the game will come down to what team can make their free throws. Whatever happens the game will be a great tune up for the bigger game.
