    Kickoff times and television plans have been set for four of USC’s first five football games of 2012.

    USC’s Sept. 1 season opener against Hawaii in the Coliseum will kick off at 4:30 p.m. PT and will be shown live on the FOX network.

    The next week, as previously announced, Troy’s Sept. 8 contest against Syracuse in MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., will begin at 3:30 p.m. ET (12:30 p.m. PT) and will be broadcast live on ABC.

    The Trojans then go to Stanford on Sept. 15 for a 4:30 p.m. PT game that will air live on FOX.

    Troy’s Thursday (Oct. 4) game at Utah will be shown live on ESPN, with kickoff set for 7 p.m. MT (6 p.m. PT).

    Start times and televising networks for USC’s remaining 8 games will be made 6-to-12 days in advance of each contest. However, the Trojans’ Sept. 22 home game against California will air on the new Pac-12 Networks and the regular-season finale against Notre Dame on Nov. 24 in the Coliseum will be shown on either ABC or ESPN, with times to be decided.

    The Pac-12 has television agreements with ESPN/ABC, FOX and Pac-12 Networks that will allow every conference football game to be shown live in 2012.

    The Trojans finished 2011 ranked No. 6 by AP after completing a 10-2 season.
