PASADENA, Calif. -- The operators of the Rose Bowl have decided to delay making a decision on whether to have the USC football team play there next season.

The Rose Bowl Operating Company said Thursday it needs to hear comments from the Trojans' main rival, UCLA, before it can reach an agreement with USC.

The Bruins play in the Rose Bowl and have veto power over sharing the stadium with another team.

USC is seeking a one-year lease to play at the Pasadena stadium after its lease with the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum ended over the weekend.
