Pasadena police officers made two dozen arrests Saturday at the Rose Bowl, where rivals USC and UCLA played for the Pac-12 Conference South Division title.

Officers arrested 18 people on suspicion of being drunk in public, two on suspicion of driving under the influence and four for trying to rush the field after UCLA's victory, according to Sgt. Bobby Crees.

Pasadena police said there were fewer arrests than at previous games between the teams.

"The weather kept numbers down," Crees said about the rainy day, adding that it "kept people a little more tame."
