Crackdown on unruly Rose Bowl tailgaters off to smooth start
About 100 Pasadena police officers, 50 volunteer Police Explorers and 30 L.A. Department of Transportation officers joined private security staff patrolling outside and inside the Rose Bowl.
Hours before the game, a number of UCLA fans said they either appreciated or hadn't noticed new layers of security added since violence, including the stabbing of two men, erupted before the USC-UCLA game in December, according to the Pasadena Sun.
