USC Football To Hold Free Public Scrimmage In Coliseum On Aug. 20
Aug. 14, 2006
USC football fans can watch their No. 3-ranked Trojans play for free when the team holds a public scrimmage in the Coliseum this Sunday (Aug. 20) at 7:45 p.m.
Seating is first come, first serve. Coliseum gates 1 and 4 will open at 6:45 p.m. Parking is $10 in Coliseum lots.
The scrimmage will be conducted as a mock game, with the Trojans bused over from a local hotel. They'll arrive at the Coliseum at 6 p.m. and do their traditional 'Trojan Walk' through the crowd outside the east end of the Coliseum, marching down the peristyle and into the locker room. They'll go through pre-games warmups on the field and then conduct a full contact scrimmage.
This will be four-time defending Pac-10 champion USC's dress rehearsal for its 2006 season opener at Arkansas on Sept. 2.
