LOS ANGELES -- The kickoff times for 4 more of USC's 2008 football games have been determined, bringing the total to 10 of the Trojans' 12 games with set start times.
USC's Aug. 30 season opener at Virginia will kick off at 3:30 p.m. Eastern (12:30 p.m. Pacific) and will be shown on ABC and ESPN2.
FSN will air a pair of Trojan road games nationally: the Oct. 18 contest at Washington State at 12:30 p.m. Pacific and the Oct. 25 game at Arizona at 7:15 p.m. Mountain/Pacific.
The Nov. 15 game at Stanford will kick at 4 p.m. Pacific and will be shown nationally on Versus.
Last month, USC announced the kickoff times for 6 games, including 4 home contests that will begin at 5 p.m. Pacific: Sept. 13 versus Ohio State (on ABC), Oct. 4 versus Oregon (ABC, ESPN or ESPN2), Nov. 8 versus California (ABC) and Nov. 29 versus Notre Dame (ABC, ESPN or ESPN 2). The Sept. 25 Thursday night game at Oregon State will kick at 6 p.m. Pacific on ESPN, while Troy's season-ending Dec. 6 crosstown battle at UCLA will start at 1:30 p.m. Pacific on ABC.
The times for USC's remaining 2 contests of 2008--the home games on Oct. 11 against Arizona State and Nov. 1 against Washington on Homecoming-will be announced 2 weeks prior to kickoff, pending the television networks' selections.
USC is coming off 6 consecutive AP Top 4 finishes, BCS bowl appearances, Pac-10 championships and 11-win seasons.
