USC vs. Stanford kicks off the 2015 Pac-12 slate with a battle of in-state rivals who have kept it extremely close in the last few meetings.
The Trojans have come away with victories in the last two contests but the series has been as tight as could be lately. In the previous five games, the winner has emerged by an average of just 4.6 points.
The game will be broadcast live at 5:00 p.m. on ABC with Sean McDonough on the call. Chris Spielman will be alongside to provide the color commentary while Todd McShay will be on the sidelines.
There will be a live national radio broadcast as well on ESPN Radio and SiriusXM satellite radio on Channel 80.
As usual, Pete Arbogast will handle the local radio broadcast on 710 ESPNLA, the official home of the Trojans in Los Angeles. John Jackson joins him as the color commentator 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.
