USC-Hawaii Game Allowed by NCAA
Los Angeles, CA - June 17, 2010 -- The NCAA Committee on Infractions has agreed to allow the USC football team to compete in the football game scheduled for Thursday, September 2 against the University of Hawaii. The committee granted the measure as a one-year exception to the '12 games only' imposition of penalties announced recently in response to rules violations.
The committee agreed to postpone a ban on a 13th game until the 2011 USC football season.
USC's Senior Vice President for Administration, Todd Dickey, said: 'We want to thank the Committee for granting this relief; it recognizes the serious financial impacts game cancellation would have had to the University and State of Hawaii as well as the fans and supporters of USC who have already made travel arrangements.'
