It’s one of those noon kickoffs this Saturday at the Coliseum, as USC looks to bounce back from a shocking to defeat against Washington State, as they host the upstart Boston College Eagles. The game is televised on the Pac-12 Networks, but if you’re headed to the game tomorrow, then here’s all you need to know:
Weather: There’s a high of 86 degrees in University Park on gameday.
Coliseum Parking: Per the terms of the new agreement as the rights holder at the Coliseum, USC-sanctioned parking within the grounds of Exposition Park is $25. All lots in the park open 6:00 a.m., though RV parking must be reserved ahead of time and is limited to Lot 1.
On-campus Parking: USC will open all campus lots and parking structures at 6:00 a.m., and just like at Exposition Park, parking is a flat $25. For those wishing to park at the USC Parking Center off of Jefferson and Hope, there’s a free shuttle running to and from the Coliseum.

USC Trojan Marching Band Pregame Concert: Due to the construction at Heritage Hall, the Spirit of Troy will not play on the steps of Heritage Hall this season. Instead, they will perform roughly two hours before kickoff at Cromwell Field, USC’s track stadium. Fans are permitted to view the concert from the stands as Dr. Arthur C. Bartner leads the band through their halftime routine.
