The governing board of the California Science Center had unanimously approved the final part of a lease agreement for the Coliseum, clearing the way for USC to operate and restore the historic landmark. The Coliseum will remain the home of Trojan football for 98 years, and USC will invest at least $70 million in renovations for this public stadium. Pictured in this photo: L.A.
