The UCLA–USC rivalry refers to the American collegiate athletics rivalry between the UCLA Bruins sports teams of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the USC Trojans sports teams of the University of Southern California (USC).
Both universities are located in Los Angeles and are members of the Pac-12 Conference. The rivalry between the two is among the more unusual in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I sports, because the campuses are only 12 miles (19 km) apart, and both are located within the same megacity.
UCLA teams have won the second-most NCAA Division I-sanctioned team championships with 116 while USC has the third-most with 106. Only Stanford University, a fellow Pac-12 member also located in California, has more than either UCLA or USC, with 117.
USC is recognized as consistently being one of the top football programs in the nation, while UCLA is recognized as consistently being one of the top basketball programs in the nation. However, a somewhat rare confluence of events occurred in 1954, which began with USC in their last of only two Final Four appearance in the 1954 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament and ended with UCLA winning their only Football National Championship.
Both schools also are successful in many “non-revenue” or “olympic” sports. Both have had success in track and field, water polo, tennis, volleyball, and golf. USC has won 26 NCAA Championships in Men’s Outdoor Track and Field, 21 in Men’s Tennis, and 12 in Baseball, the most of any school in each respective sport. Likewise, UCLA has won 19 NCAA Championships in Men’s Volleyball, 11 in Softball, and 7 in Women’s Water Polo, also the most of any school in those sports.
UCLA ranks second overall in NCAA team championships, with 115, behind Stanford, with 116. They also rank second in men’s NCAA team championships with 72, and second (behind Stanford) in women’s NCAA team championships with 39. USC ranks higher than UCLA and first in the nation in men’s NCAA team championships with 84; it is 3rd overall with 104 NCAA titles (behind UCLA and Stanford). Both schools also have several non-NCAA Championships, including AIAW and pre-NCAA championships.
