On Tuesday morning, the Pac-12 conference announced the full 12-game football schedules for it’s member teams, further painting a clearer for this upcoming season.

The Trojans’ schedule is as follows:
- September 4: vs. San Jose State
- September 11: vs. Stanford
- September 18: @ Washington State
- September 25: vs. Oregon State
- October 2: @ Colorado
- October 9: vs. Utah
- October 23: @ Notre Dame
- October 30: vs. Arizona
- November 6: @ Arizona State
- November 13: @ California
- November 20: vs. UCLA
- November 27: vs. BYU
The Trojans will luckily get most of their more notable conference rivals at home this year with Stanford, Utah, and UCLA all visiting Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. This also includes a season finale at home against the cougars of BYU, one of the best Group of 5 teams from just a year ago.
I’d say this is a fairly favorable schedule for the Trojans with their toughest road tests coming after the bye week against Notre Dame in South Bend and Arizona State in Tempe.
