USC Beats UCLA in U.S. News & World Report's Annual Rankings of Top American Universities
It's bad enough for us Bruins to have to endure the constant beat downs by USC in football (even when team's not even post-season eligible).

In-state tuition and fees: $11,604 (2011-12)
Would you pay nearly four times as much for a school only (allegedly) a hair better? We think not. Not unless you're a dumb Trojan.
