Maybe We Can Finally Settle This Dispute
Louisiana State and USC fans have been going at it ever since the teams split the 2003 national title (LSU the BCS, USC the AP). And now — if things break just right — the teams could finally settle it on the field. Specifically, in the Rose Bowl. Chris Dufresne of the L.A. Times reports that if the Trojans lose Saturday to rival UCLA, USC is likely to be paired against LSU in Pasadena. The Tigers have never played in the Rose Bowl and fans have already committed to purchasing 28,000 tickets the the Granddaddy. LSU's main competition is coming from Notre Dame, which last played in Pasadena in 1925. If USC defeats UCLA and advances to the BCS title game, Michigan would get the call from Tournament of Roses officials, with LSU or Notre Dame likely filling the other slot.
