    The No. 5 USC women's rowing team looks to continue their impressive season as they face No. 8 UCLA this Saturday at the USC boathouse in San Pedro, Calif. The Women of Troy have gone undefeated (10-0) in the series since its inception in 2002.

    The Trojans Varsity Eight boat is currently undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the country after taking down No. 1 California, No. 2 Virginia, No. 6 Washington, No. 7 Princeton, No. 11 Yale, No. 12 Stanford, No. 13 Michigan State and No. 15 Notre Dame this season. USC also defeated UCLA to open the season en route to their title win at the San Diego Crew Classic.

    In addition to trying to remain unbeaten in the all-time series the Trojans will look to add to their point total in the Crosstown Gauntlet, the head-to-head all-sports competition with rival UCLA. UCLA currently leads by a score of 42.5 to 40. Five points will be up for grabs this Saturday.
