With summer on it’s way and fall camp to follow, USC gave Trojan fans a taste of the upcoming season schedule, announcing the kick off times and TV networks for some early (and one late) season contests.
First up are the Fresno State Bulldogs. The season opener gets things started at 4:30 p.m. on the penultimate day of August on FOX. Last year, USC dismantled the Bulldogs in the Royal Purple Las Vegas bowl, 45-20.
USC’s Pac-12 opener offers the nation a juicy midday match up with bitter rival Stanford on ABC. No doubt the Cardinal will be looking to avenge USC’s 20-17 upset at the Coliseum.
The out of conference slate continues with a 5:00 p.m. tilt against Boston College on one of ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. In another rematch, the Trojans will hope to build on last year’s 35-7 blow out.
Though we know the scheduled match ups for the remainder of September, October and November, the network and timing of just one of USC’s remaining fixtures was announced. The lone Thursday match up against California will officially kick off at 6:00 p.m. on ESPN. In 2013, the Trojans rode Nelson Agholor’s break out day on the way to a 62-28 victory.
