Each fall, Schneider takes the term "passion" to a new level as a dedicated USC fan who travels 2,300 miles almost every other weekend to watch his Trojans take the field in the Coliseum. He didn't go to USC, but the Florida resident understands the Trojan Family as true as anyone after being adopted in by USC alumni at the 2005 Orange Bowl. In the 11 years since, Schneider has bled Cardinal & Gold.
"I always get goosebumps when I step foot into the Coliseum," Schneider said. "This place is special."

USC has six home games in 2016. The Trojans play their home opener on Sept. 10 when they welcome Utah State of the Mountain West Conference, with fans receiving a Marcus Allen bobblehead. Troy next has back-to-back October games, Arizona State on Oct. 1 for its initial conference home opener and then Colorado on Oct. 8 as part of Trojan Family Weekend. USC follows by hosting California on Thursday night, Oct. 27 (just the fourth non-holiday Thursday game that Troy has played in the Coliseum). The Trojans remain at home the following week for Homecoming to face Oregon on Nov. 5, the Ducks' first appearance in the Coliseum in four years. USC then concludes its regular season by hosting traditional foe Notre Dame in a Thanksgiving weekend clash on Nov. 26.
