The Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings' No. 2 team, UCLA, took down the No. 1 USC Trojans in a heavyweight showdown at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Tuesday.

The Bruins' win snaps an eight-tournament win streak for USC, the defending national champs.

The Bruins bested USC by six strokes, and were led by freshman Alison Lee, who finished T-3. UCLA finished at 21-under on the par-72, 6,140-yard English Turn Golf and Country Club in New Orleans.

Three Bruins shot rounds of 2-under 70 on the final day, including Lee. Junior Erynne Lee also finished in the top 10 for UCLA at T-6. She shot a team-best 66 in the second round, but carded a 74 on the final day.

USC (15 under), Florida (6 under) and Denver (2 over) rounded out the top four at the prestigious event, with Clemson and Alabama (4 over) tying for fifth.

Auburn senior Marta Sanz took medalist honors after firing rounds of 69 and 68 in the final 36 holes. She was 8 under on the tournament. Sanz made birdie six times in her final round, and was 4 under on par 5s in that stretch.

Individual notables include: USC's Annie Park (T-8), USC's Sophia Popov (T-11), Alabama's Stephanie Meadow (T-22), Clemson's Ashlan Ramsey (T-27) and Oklahoma State's Julie Yang (T-37).
