The Trojans’ season opener Sept. 1 against Nevada Las Vegas will kick off at 1 p.m. in the Coliseum and be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
On Sept. 8, USC begins its Pac-12 championship defense at Stanford with a 5:30 p.m. kickoff on Fox.
On Sept. 15, the Trojans travel to Texas for a 5 p.m. PDT kickoff that also will be televised by Fox.
On Sept. 21, USC returns to the Coliseum for a Friday night game with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff on ESPN — the Trojans’ first Friday home game since 1999.
