Jevone Moore.

UCLA's softball infield from left to right, third base, Delanie Wisz, shortstop, Briana Perez, second base Anna Vines and first base Kinsley Washington will try to help the Bruins win the Los Angeles NCAA softball Regionals which starts Friday when the Bruins take on Grand Canyon at 7 p.m. on the UCLA campus. The double elimination tournament continues on Saturday and Sunday. UCLA finished the regular season with a 43-8 record and they were 19-5 in the Pac-12 Conference which was good enough for second place. The Bruins we be playing in their 23rd straight post season tournament.


UCLA has won the annual head-to-head all-sports competition with crosstown rival USC, capturing the 2021-22 Crosstown Cup by a score of 100-90. This is the third time in the last five years that UCLA has claimed the Cup.

"Congratulations to our student-athletes for a successful season and for capturing the Crosstown Cup," said UCLA's Alice and Nahum Lainer Family Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond. "This is one of the greatest rivalries in collegiate athletics, and it's always nice to give Bruin Nation bragging rights for another year."

Each of the 19 sports in which UCLA and USC field teams have the opportunity to win 10 points towards the Cup. All 10 points for a sport are awarded to the winner of the most head-to-head contests in that sport. If both schools win an equal amount of matchups in a sport, the 10 points are split. Sports that do not feature a head-to-head competition have 10 points allocated to the highest finisher among the two teams in Pac-12 Championship play.

The Bruins earned the full 10 points from eight teams – football, women's soccer, women's cross country, men's basketball, women's basketball, men's volleyball, men's golf and women's golf. Four teams split the 10 points – women's volleyball, men's water polo, women's tennis and women's water polo. USC had an 18-15 overall record in head-to-head matchups, but UCLA won all three of the conference championship matchups that determined point-winners (women's cross country, men's golf and women's golf).

While the rivalry dates back to the 1920s, the official head-to-head battle to determine an annual all-sports champion started in the 2001-02 season. With the conclusion of this year's competition, the Bruins have now taken five of the last nine showdowns with the Trojans.
