It took awhile but here is how USC plans to honor the 1969 and 1994 teams since the Salute to Troy dinner was canceled that usually honors past teams.
USC is scheduled to have a fall scrimmage at the Coliseum on August 17 from 4-6 p.m. Before the scrimmage, those former players who are in attendance will have their names announced.
This is a pretty no-frills version of what used to happen, when the teams would gather at Heritage Hall before the Salute to Troy and then go up on stage during the Salute to Troy.
They won’t even be allowed on the field at the Coliseum for the scrimmage or gather in the new Tower that has plenty of facilities for a pre-scrimmage event.
Already, several members of the ’69 and ’94 said they will skip the scrimmage based on the Spartan ceremony.
