The prank wars continue between USC and UCLA a day ahead of their football meetup. After UCLA fountains were dyed a distinctly Trojan crimson the other day, this morning USC students awoke to blue and gold paint newly added to their Cromwell Field, according to LA Now. Large letters spelling out UCLA were on the turf, while nearby flagpoles also took on new hues. Clean-up crews were already eradicating traces of Bruin vandalism from the campus, while students remained on watch to guard their beloved Tommy Trojan statue.
