Yes, when Cathedral plays Loyola in football, the debate inevitably turns to which school has the best view of downtown Los Angeles at night.

This year’s game will be played at Loyola on Friday night.

In 2016, when the rivalry resumed, freshman quarterback Bryce Young helped Cathedral defeat Loyola 21-19 on a missed field goal on the final play. In 2017, Loyola won 17-7.
