UCLA mascot gets USC paint job ahead of big game

AP reports:

UCLA's bruin mascot has gotten a messy paint job — in the colors of cross-town rival USC.  UCLA spokesman Phil Hampton says the statue in Bruin Square was splashed with red and gold paint sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.  Vandals cut through a protective tarp to vandalize the statue in the middle of the west Los Angeles campus days before Saturday's Bruins-Trojans game.

No arrests were made but campus police are investigating.  Meanwhile, USC students in shifts are guarding their Tommy Trojan statue, which also is under wraps.
