USC has inserted San Jose State into the void left by dropping UC Davis in 2021. The game will be Sept. 4.
This will preserve the tradition of never playing an FCS team. San Jose State just got $1.8 million from Georgia when the Bulldogs dropped them to play Clemson in 2021.
So it’s a win-win for everyone. USC has to pay UC Davis $725,000 to drop the game plus whatever it pays San Jose State, which just hit the lottery.
