I’ve written a lot about how dreadful USC’s future nonconference schedules are outside of the yearly Notre Dame game.
So today’s alliance with the Big Ten and ACC can only be a step forward because it will force USC to upgrade its schedule.
Not everyone needs an upgrade. UCLA plays LSU on Sept. 4 and has SEC teams scheduled in 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027 and 2028. It also has Wisconsin in 2029.
See who excites you on this list of future USC nonconference games:
Fresno State (2022/2026/2028)
San Jose State (2024)
