PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles County probation officers will for the first time patrol Saturday's football game between UCLA and Southern California as part of an effort to deter fan violence.

A probation department spokeswoman said Friday that the officers are joining in an effort to beef up security at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Carol Lin said they will be on the lookout for potential offenders.

A fight among dozens of fans before the Southern California-UCLA game two years ago left two men with stab wounds and two officers injured.

Pasadena police said officers will patrol the stadium to enforce a set of commonsense rules for fans to follow.

The rules were recently formed by a task force comprised of sports teams and major venues concerned about aggressive fan behavior.
