A Winnetka man will be sentenced on Monday in a violent brawl during a tailgating party at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Prosecutors say 23-year-old Anthony Cisneros used a knife to assault people in the crowd gathered for the football game between USC and UCLA last December.

Witnesses say the melee broke out when someone threw a football that accidentally hit a car.

Cisneros pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted murder. He is expected to get 15 years and four months in prison.
