USC dogs vs. UCLA dogs: the ultimate cuteness showdown

The rivalry between USC and UCLA is one of the greatest in college football—especially when both teams are playing well. They'll face each other at the Coliseum this Saturday, and it looks to be a pretty solid matchup—UCLA is 8-3, while USC is 7-4.

But, honestly, there are much more important rivalries to consider. Like, for example, which team has cuter dogs? Should the pet owner have considered a scarf, or gone with a different shampoo? We're not going to throw you a bone by playing pundit (because we are ethically obligated to be impartial). But what we can do is what all great journalists have done throughout history: present the facts, and let you, the reader, come to your own conclusion. Best of luck.
