Week 3 matchup vs Utah announced with 7:30 pm PT kickoff

It may be a bit cold up there

NCAA Football: Arizona State at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We were just treated to the game time announcement for Week 2’s game against Arizona — and just like that — we found out the USC Trojans game time for their Week 3 game against Utah.

USC takes on two opponents in back-to-back away games who each had their season-opening game cancelled. Utah was set to take on Arizona this past Saturday, but had to cancel due to the Pac-12’s updated cancellation policy that saw them without the requisite number of student-athletes on scholarship available for the game.

While they’re hopeful that Utah can play in Week 2, their game time against USC has been announced at 8:30 pm MT, or 7:30 pm local time.

It’s set to likely be pretty cold up there in Salt Lake City at Rice-Eccles Stadium as average temperatures over the past 10 years fall anywhere from the 20s to the low 40s at the time of kickoff currently scheduled.

Weather could have an adverse effect on the Trojans performance but yet, we haven’t seen the Utes at all this season after they’ve had to replace 10 starters on defense and 11 of their 12 top players on the defensive side of the ball from a season ago. That also doesn’t even begin to discuss how they’re replacing perhaps the program’s all-time top running back in Zack Moss as well as a multi-year starter at quarterback in Tyler Huntley.

Either way, game time is set for the next two weeks — now let’s get to work Trojans!

FIGHT ON!
