Rose Bowl waiting to hear from UCLA before granting one-year lease to USC

PASADENA, Calif. -- The operators of the Rose Bowl have
decided to delay making a decision on whether to have the USC
football team play there next season.

The Rose Bowl Operating Company said Thursday it needs to hear
comments from the Trojans' main rival, UCLA, before it can reach an
agreement with USC.

The Bruins play in the Rose Bowl and have veto power over
sharing the stadium with another team.

USC is seeking a one-year lease to play at the Pasadena stadium
after its lease with the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum ended over
the weekend.
