Well, it feels like a big game

BERKELEY, Calif. -- On my ride up Channing to Memorial Stadium, I saw a fat guy doing laps around the traffic circle in his underwear, much to the amusement of the fraternity houses on either side of the road.

That's part of a big game atmosphere.

The crowd is not late arriving. It looks like this place will be completely full. Lots of blue. Lots of Trojans too.

It feels like a big game.

The ramifications for both USC and California, whoever wins, whoever loses, will be big.

So it's a big game.
