Announced on Friday, USC will host a three-game home series with Fresno State at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the 2019, 2022 and 2025 seasons. The Trojans' previously-announced home game with UNLV in 2019 will now be the 2018 season opener on September 1. 

USC and Fresno State will face off on August 31, 2019, September 17, 2022 and August 30, 2025. The 2019 and 2025 games will be season openers. The Trojans are 3-1 against the Bulldogs, posting a victory most recently in the 2014 season opener in which USC won, 52-13. 

Fresno State is just one of a handful of non-conference teams slated to take on USC in the next nine years, joining Texas (2017 and 2018), BYU (2019, 2021, 2023), Western Michigan (2017), New Mexico (2020) and Rice (2022).

Preseason Picks

| No Comments
As we inch closer to September 3 and the start of the USC football season, more and more Trojans are beginning to pop up on preseason All-American and All-Conference watch lists around the country. This week, junior WR JuJu Smith-Schuster leads the pack as a pick for Phil Steele's preseason All-American First Team and Athlon Sports' preseason All-Pac-12 First Team.



Last season, Smith-Schuster cemented his position as the next in line in USC's recent lineage of record-breaking wide receivers when he accrued 1,454 total yards on 89 receptions with 10 touchdowns. He averaged 103.9 yards per game, good for 11th-best in the country. Even with a new quarterback at the helm in 2016, no one anticipates the talented wide receiver dropping off any time soon, and for that reason he's been pegged as a preseason First Team All-American and All-Conference member by both Steele and Athlon Sports.

Three Trojans earned recognition on Steele's All-American Second Team, led by do-it-all junior Adoree' Jackson who is on the list as both a cornerback and punt returner. Redshirt senior OL Zach Banner and senior long snapper Zach Smith made the list as well. Sophomore LB Cam Smith, eager to return to the field this fall after sustaining a season-ending knee injury in 2015, made the Third Team.

A similar cast of characters makes up Athlon Sports' All-Pac-12 First Team, with Smith-Schuster, Banner, Smith and Jackson all listed (Jackson as a CB). On the second team, sophomore RB Ronald Jones II, who last season broke the Trojans' freshman rushing record, leads the pack alongside OL Toa Lobendahn, OL Chad Wheeler, CB Iman Marshall and Jackson as a punt returner.

In total, 15 Trojans are listed on Steele's preseason All-Pac-12 first, second, third and fourth teams, while 11 Trojans earned spots on Athlon Sports' first through fourth teams.

Open Invitation

USC men's golf rising sophomore Justin Suh advanced through U.S. Open qualifying to earn a spot in the field at Oakmont this week.

Suh, known to his teammates as "Boomer", fired back-to-back 67s to book his ticket to the 116th U.S. Open. He is grouped with fellow Americans T.J. Howe and Frank Adams III in the second to last threesome to go off on Thursday (11:42 a.m. PT).

Fans can follow @USCMensGolf on Twitter for live updates of Suh's adventures on golf's biggest stage. Here is a sampling of his experience so far:




Brotherhood in Buffalo

| No Comments
Despite it being 2,500 miles from home, former USC CB Kevon Seymour wasn't concerned about making the adjustment to Buffalo when he was drafted by the Bills in the sixth round in April. Sporting new colors in a new city, the rookie had confidence in the only piece of familiarity that existed for him on the East Coast: his former teammate and mentor Nickell Robey. The fourth-year CB has been watching out for the rookie through his first six weeks in the NFL, bringing the Trojan Family alive in Buffalo. 

"I remember being at USC it was the exact same thing," Seymour told BuffaloBills.com. "He brought me under his wing. We'd sit together in the film room... Once I found out I was going to be here I was thinking I've already got a guy here to lean on... He's just trying to have my back and be that mentor and big brother here that I don't have."


Seymour earned first team reps at voluntary OTAs throughout the last month due to teammates' injuries, putting a premium on his ability to adapt to the NFL's tempo. According to the Bills, Robey has gone out of his way to make sure his fellow Trojan gets all the advice, feedback and encouragement he needs to get up to speed.

Fresh Forwards

The USC women's soccer offensive will feature two new faces this fall in transfer forwards Alex Anthony, from Maryland, and Leah Pruitt from San Diego State the team announced on Monday. Both talented players are talented transfers who will be eligible to play immediately. 


"Overall we did not score goals with regularity last year and one of the goals of our staff was to improve that," explained head coach Keidane McAlpine. "We are excited that Alex and Leah will give us depth in that area."

A double major in sociology and psychology in just three years, Anthony showcased her proficiencies both on and off the pitch at Maryland. In her redshirt sophomore season, the forward started all 19 of the Terrapins' games, finishing tied for second in the Big 10 with 10 goals scored. She broke the school single-season record and led the Big 10 with 91 shots. 

Pruitt earned 2015 Mountain West Freshman of the Year honors after leading the Aztecs with 10 goals, nine assists, five game-winners and 62 shots in her rookie season. The All-Mountain West First Teamer started in all 18 of San Diego State's game and brings a season of experience with her to Troy. 


Reaching the Finish Line

| No Comments
After four days in Eugene, the USC track & field team is returning to Los Angeles with one individual national champion, seven two-time All-Americans and a new school record in the women's 4x100m relay. Tynia Gaither and Deanna Hill each scored in three events, leading the group of repeat All-Americans on the women's side, while Randall Cunningham soared to an individual national title in the high jump, becoming the first Trojan since 2006 to win the event for the men. 


The USC women's team finished tied for ninth, but did feature impressive performances from several experienced Trojans in the midst of the somewhat underwhelming team outcome. The 4x100m relay team of Gaither, Hill, Destinee Brown and Alexis Faulknor was the highlight of the week, posting a second-place finish in a school record time of 42.90 on Saturday. Gaither and Hill also each scored in both the 100m and 200m, with Gaither, a redshirt senior finishing fourth and fifth respectively, and Hill, a sophomore, securing fifth and seventh, respectively. They are the only Trojan women to score in both the 100m and 200m since Carol Rodriguez in 2006, and are now both repeat All-Americans. Jaide Stepter wrapped up a strong Trojan career finishing sixth in the 400m IH, bettering her eighth-place finish in 2015. Tera Novy rounded out the group of individual event scorers, placing seventh in the discus to become a two-time All-American as well. 

Despite sending just four athletes to the NCAA Championships, the USC men's team earned a 12th-place finish at the meet thanks to Cunningham's dominating individual performance. The Trojan men have now finished in the Top 12 for 12 consecutive years. Cunningham seemingly breezed past the competition in the high jump, clearing all heights on his first five attempts en route to his winning mark of 7-4.50. He is USC's 11th high jump champion, and now a two-time All-American after finishing eighth in 2015. Sophomore Adoree' Jackson also performed well in the field, finishing fifth in the long jump to become a two-time All-American alongside Cunningham. Also scoring for the USC men was Ricky Morgan Jr. who placed seventh in the 400m.



"We came to the men's NCAA Championships with four sophomores. To leave here with three All-Americans and an NCAA Champion is quite a feat any way you look at it," said USC Director of Track & Field Caryl Smith-Gilbert on Friday. 

Here's Cunningham after winning the 2016 high jump title...

The Trojans wrapped up the 2016 NCAA Track & Field Championships with one individual national champion, a school record in the women's 4x100m relay and a ninth-place finish by the Women of Troy on Saturday. 

USC scored eight times in six different events on the meet's final day of competition and John McGillen was front row at Hayward Field to capture every moment.
