The 2019 USC football schedule has been announced by the Pac-12 and it features six home games in the renovated Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, with visits from non-conference opponent Fresno State to open the season and league foes UCLA, Stanford, Oregon, Utah (on a Friday night) and Arizona.

The Trojans’ road games will be at Notre Dame, Washington, BYU, California, Arizona State and Colorado (on a Friday night).  USC, which has a bye following its fifth game of the season, will play nine league foes in the 2019 regular season (all but Washington State and Oregon State).

Fans attending USC home games in 2019 will enjoy the Coliseum’s completed $315 million renovation, which includes new seats with increased legroom, along with aisle handrails, additional aisles and a new stadium-wide Wi-Fi system. There also will be a south-side structure housing suites, loge boxes, club seats, a new concourse and a new press box

New season ticket deposits can be placed now online or calling 213-740-GOSC (4672).  Season ticket renewals will officially launch Jan. 14.

After a bye the following weekend, USC remains on the road for its annual intersectional clash with Notre Dame, visiting South Bend on Oct. 12.
