USC Trojan football is officially back for another year as the season kicks off tonight in the Coliseum against the Fresno State Bulldogs.
Steve Sarkisian’s Trojans have had rough time of it this week, juggling game preparation and controversy in the wake of the Josh Shaw scandal and Anthony Brown “racist” drama.
With off-the-field concerns behind them, the focus turns securely on fighting for the first victory of the year.
The game will be broadcast live on national TV by FOX at 4:30 pm Pacific time. For Spanish speakers the game will also appear on FOX Deportes. The ever-emphatic Gus Johnson leads the broadcast team with Charles Davis alongside. Molly McGrath will act as the sideline reporter.
ESPN Radio has the rights to the national radio broadcast which will air live with Rich Cellini, Tom Ramsey and Dave Shore.
As usual, Pete Arbogast will handle the local radio broadcast on 710 ESPNLA, the official home of the Trojans in Los Angeles. John Jackson will once again provide color this season with Jordan Moore on the sidelines. For those outside the Los Angeles area, the game will also be aired in Ontario, San Bernardino County and the Inland Empire on 1510 KSPA-AM, in Palm Springs on 1010 KXPS-AM, in Barstow on 1230 KSZL-AM, in Las Vegas on 1400 KSHP-AM, in Fresno on 96.7 KALZ-FM and in Visalia on 1400 KRZR-AM. Those with access to a computer and internet can also listen live on USCTrojans.com.
