I naively thought the USC-UCLA game would start around 12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. but instead it’s another night kickoff.
USC and UCLA will both be ranked in the top 10 for the game. Maybe you like 5 p.m. kickoffs. I don’t hate them but I like a more traditional kickoff for a big fall game. Also, it just seems so Pac-12 to do this and not announce it until six days before the game.
It’s another reminder of how amateurish the Pac-12 can be at times. Blame the TV deal. Blah, blah, blah.
- Here’s a good one: USC does not have classes Friday (Veterans Day) but still will not allow tailgating on campus before the Colorado game. It will also not allow tailgating at the USC Village.
So one of the big inconveniences of a Friday game is that students have to deal with the football fans and the fans come to campus with limited parking available because of classes.
But there are no classes!
So why not relax the rules? Nope.
