The crosstown rivalry standings are tied at 40-40 with a pair of tennis dual matches on tap Friday.
No. 1 USC men's tennis will look to sweep the season series over the Bruins as the Trojans are one win away from a perfect regular season. The festivities get started at 3 p.m. with a senior salute to Steve Johnson and Daniel Nguyen.
Meanwhile in Westwood, No. 4 USC women's tennis is trying to get over the hump after dropping the first two matches to No. 1 UCLA this season. The most recent fixture came down to the final singles contest, so the young Women of Troy know that they are gaining on the Bruins.
USC has won the last four Gauntlets, but the 2011-12 rivalry is down to the final competitions. Come out to support the Trojans in our never ending quest to Beat the Bruins!
