The 11th ranked, 9-1 UCLA Bruins of coach Karl Dorrell stood between the top-ranked, 11-0 Southern Cal Trojans of coach Pete Carroll & history.  A win in this game would give to Trojans the Victory Bell, a shot at the BCS Championship for the 2nd consecutive year, & a 25th consecutive successful Belt defense which would be the 2nd most all-time trailing only Miami’s 31 consecutive defenses from 2000 to 2002.  Southern Cal tallied 679 yards of total offense led by All-American RB Reggie Bush’s 260 yards rushing with 2 touchdowns to rout their cross-town rivals by a score of 66-19 & move to 2nd on the All-Time Consecutive Belt Victories list.  The Trojans scored first on PK Mario Danelo’s 35-yard field goal & then on an 8-play, 80-yard drive with All-Pac 10 QB Matt Leinart hitting All-American WR Dwayne Jarrett for the 8-yard touchdown pass giving Southern Cal a 10-0 going into the 2nd quarter.  The Trojans next score came after an 8-play, 97-yard drive highlighted by Bush’s 65-yard run.  Southern Cal's RB LenDale White finished the drive with a 19-yard touchdown run for a 17-0 lead.  On the ensuing kick-off, UCLA's RB Kahlil Bell fumbled & Southern Cal's CB Josh Pinkard recovered giving the Trojans the ball back at the UCLA 41-yard line.  Seven plays later, Bush scored on a 13-yard touchdown run & Southern Cal had a 24-0 with 10:52 left in the half.  The Bruins got 2 field goals, each from 43 yards, by PK Justin Medlock before Bush scored again this time on a 10-yard touchdown run as Southern Cal had a 31-6 halftime lead.  Midway through the 3rd quarter the Trojans increased the lead again as Leinart connected with TE Fred Davis on a 15-yard touchdown pass for a 38-6 advantage.  Another mistake on the ensuing kick-off meant another Southern Cal score.  UCLA’s All-American KR Maurice Drew fumbled during the return with Southern Cal's CB Justin Wyatt picking-up the ball & racing 38 yards for a touchdown.  Leinart connected with White on a 24-yard touchdown pass pushing the lead to 52-6 as the 3rd quarter ended.  White’s 8-yard touchdown run made it 59-6 before the Bruins finally got into the end zone on a 15-yard touchdown run by Drew.  Southern Cal’s CB John Walker returned the on-side kick attempt to the UCLA 2-yard line & RB David Kirtman scored on the next play for a 66-13 edge.  UCLA's QB Drew Olson hit WR Matt Willis on a 13-yard touchdown pass with 0:11 to play to complete the rout.  Leinart threw for 233 yards with 3 touchdowns & White added 154 yards rushing to his 2 scores.  Olson finished with 146 yards passing but was sacked 5 times by the Trojans’ defense & All-Pac 10 TE Marcedes Lewis was held to just 3 catches for 30 yards.  Southern Cal finished the season 0-1 which includes 12 wins vacated as a result of Bush being declared ineligible by the NCAA; Pac 10 Champions & ranked 2nd nationally while the Bruins finished 10-2 & ranked 16th nationally.  UCLA would play for The Belt again in 2012.
