The Trojans know which schools they will be matching up with in 2014, but with the season on the horizon, they are just now beginning to learn the game times and networks in which their games will be televised on for the first few weeks of the season.

On Thursday, the Pac-12, along with USC, announced when and where fans will be able to catch USC's first three games of the season.

The Trojans and head coach Steve Sarkisian will make their season debut at home on Aug. 30 in the national spotlight at 4:30 p.m. PT on Fox , where they will face off against a familiar foe, in defending Mountain West Conference Champion Fresno State.

USC defeated the Bulldogs in the Royal Purple las Vegas Bowl, 45-20, to cap off last season, which makes it the first time since 1916 and 1917 respectively that the Trojans have played the same team consecutively.

The following week, on Sept. 6, the Trojans will travel up to Palo Alto, Calif. to take on two-time defending Pac-12 champion Stanford in another nationally televised game on ABC at 12:30 p.m. PT. This contest will mark the Pac-12's first conference game of 2014.

It was announced earlier that USC's Sept. 13 contest on the road against Boston College of the ACC will kick off at 5:00 p.m. PT and will air live nationally on ABC, ESPN or ESPN 2.

Finally, the Trojans will host only their second non-Thanksgiving or non-bowl Thursday game at the coliseum on Nov. 13 against California at 6:00 p.m. PT on ESPN.

Start times and televising networks for the Trojans' eight remaining games will be announced six to 12 days prior to each contest.

The Pac-12 has engaged in agreements with all major networks so that every conference game in 2014 will be nationally televised.
