USC Football Schedule 2011

All the dates and almost all the times have been set for the USC football games next season.  There are five away games and seven home games for Trojans.  We will now play Utah and Colorado this year instead of Washington State and Oregon State with the addition of the two new teams.  I don’t know what to expect since this is the first year Colorado and Utah are in the conference, but we’ll see how those games go.

With the new television deal with Fox and ESPN, some games will not take place on the typical Saturday.  The Cal game (also known as the Weekender game for 2011) will take place on Thursday night, unlike previous seasons where the game was on Saturday.  This is going to make it hard for some students to make the trek out to the game because of classes.  The game against Colorado will take place on Friday.  This is supposed to give the Pac-12 more national exposure as one of the only games on during that day, so more people will be inclined to watch.  All the rest of the games will take place on Saturday.

Here’s the schedule:
