Just when you thought the news wouldn’t stop coming. On the morning that Kliff Kingsbury came to an agreement to be the new offensive coordinator at USC, the Trojans released their schedule for the 2019 season.
USC's schedule features 6 home games in the renovated @lacoliseum, with visits from Fresno State to open the season, plus UCLA, Stanford, Oregon, Utah (on a Friday night) and Arizona. #FightOnhttps://t.co/ct4PP9jvaj— USC Trojans (@USC_Athletics) December 4, 2018
The Trojans will play six games inside the newly renovated L.A. Coliseum which includes a matchup against defending Mountain West Champion Fresno State to open the season, the annual Pac-12 opener with the Stanford Cardinal, and the crosstown rivalry with UCLA to end the 2019 regular season. USC is currently facing a three game losing streak at home after winning 19 straight.
On September 14, USC travels to Provo, Utah to face BYU in the first meeting with the Cougars since 2004. That was also the last time the Trojans traveled to Provo and defeated BYU 42-10. The same season the Trojans won the BCS National Championship led by Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart.
The meetings with the Washington and Oregon schools now flip as USC faces the Washington Huskies and Oregon Ducks. The Trojans travel to Seattle on September 28 and welcome the Ducks to the Coliseum on November 2nd.
USC travels to South Bend, Indiana on October 12 for the annual rivalry with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Trojans are currently facing a three game losing streak in South Bend and dropped their second straight to the Irish on Thanksgiving weekend.
Two Friday night games highlight the USC 2019 schedule. Defending Pac-12 South Champion Utah Utes come to Los Angeles on September 20 for an early critical Pac-12 South matchup. October 25 the Trojans make their way to Boulder to face the Colorado Buffaloes. The Utes have not defeated the Trojans in Los Angeles, while Colorado is winless all-time against USC. Both will look to end their respective winless streaks.
