The Trojans are just minutes away from departing their Eugene hotel and traveling with a police escort for the two-mile trip to Autzen Stadium. Kickoff is set for 5:12 p.m., and the game will be televised nationally on ABC or ESPN2, depending on your location (it'll also be broadcast on several other platforms).
Immediately after the game, the Trojans will head to the airport and fly back to southern California, with an estimated arrival set for around 12:30 a.m. tonight. We'll have a full report from the game, including behind-the-scenes photos, after returning to L.A. late tonight, but in the meantime, we'll be posting occasional updates on USCRipsIt's Twitter.
