It seems like forever ago that the Trojans ended the Lane Kiffin era in ultimate crash-and-burn fashion in Tempe, losing to Arizona State 62-41. Now, 12 days later, USC is set to take the field in what they’re calling a ‘new season’, under interim head coach Ed Orgeron. Surely, it’s a fitting dramatic angle for the first non-Thanksgiving Thursday night game at the Coliseum, in which Rich Rodriguez’s Arizona Wildcats come calling.
The game will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1 at 7:30 p.m. Pacific, 10:30 p.m. Eastern, in what is USC’s second ever broadcast on the upstart network. The first, came last month when the Trojans lost to Washington State.
As always, Pete Arbogast is set to call the game on USC flagship 710 KSPN in Los Angeles, along with former Trojan John Jackson and Jordan Moore on the sideline. Fans outside of the LA area can also listen to the game on other stations in the USC radio network: KSPA-AM 1510 in Ontario/San Bernardino County/Inland Empire, KXPS-AM 1010 in Palm Springs, KSZL-AM 1230 in Barstow, KSHP-AM 1400 in Las Vegas, KALZ-FM 96.7 in Fresno, KRZR-AM 1400 in Visalia and KHTY-AM 970 in Bakersfield. The live 710 ESPN Radio broadcast is also available on USCTrojans.com, on SiriusXM satellite radio or by dialing 1-800-846-4675 ext. 5933.
