USC covers statues in duct tape to prevent UCLA graffiti

Thursday November 20th, 2014

USC is preparing to take on cross-town rivals UCLA on Saturday night, and the school is protecting itself from any pregame attacks by Bruins supporters on its campus by covering up major landmarks with lots and lots of duct tape.

Like many college rivals, the schools have a tradition of vandalizing the nemesis' statues with graffiti, but the Trojans are hoping the duct tape coverall will deter the attackers or at least ease the clean up.

If UCLA students finds a way to get the graffiti under the duct tape on these statues, the Bruins should get to start the game with a 14-point lead.
