It's sad when the biggest hits in a rivalry game come off the football field. But that's what happened before, during and after USC's 28-14 victory over UCLA.
First a 50-75 person brawl broke out on the golf course used for parking outside the Rose Bowl leaving two men with stab wounds and three men in jail, including one on a charge of attempted murder. Two officers were injured trying to break up the melee.

B) Buy another ticket on the way in from some desperate scalper for $10 bucks (or probably less) since the game only drew 71,000 fans to a stadium which seats approximately 91,000 spectators.
C) Smash the vehicle's window with a keg.
If you answered "C: Smash the window with a keg," congratulations! You are one of the Trojan rocket scientists in the video below.
