It’s another must win prospect for USC vs. Arizona as the Trojans look to keep the season alive in the Pac-12 South on Homecoming.
USC is fresh off a Halloween victory over Cal and looking to extend their winning streak to three games for the first time in 2015. Should they collect a win on Saturday they would be just three wins from a potential Pac-12 title game berth.
Many expected the Wildcats to challenge for the spot they held last season, but injuries have devastated Rich Rodriguez’ squad, who find themselves playing the role of the spoiler. All but knocked out of contention for the division title 2-4 in conference, Arizona will want to bounce back from a 49-3 blowout last week to save some face to end their disappointing season.
The late night action will air on ESPN at 7:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. Mark Jones is on the play-by-play with Rod Gilmore supplying color commentary. Reporting from the sidelines is Quint Kessenich.
There is a national radio broadcast of the game on tap as well, with Roxy Bernstein and Tom Ramsey on ESPN Radio.
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. Those with access to a computer and internet can also listen live on USCTrojans.com.
