USC season opener vs. Hogs moved up one week
LOS ANGELES -- The date of Southern California's season opener at Arkansas has been moved up seven days to Sept. 2, the school said Tuesday.
The starting time of the game, to be televised by ESPN, hasn't been determined.
USC's second game will be played Sept. 16 against Nebraska at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
The Trojans defeated Arkansas 70-17 at the Coliseum last season -- part of a 34-game winning streak that ended Jan. 4 with a 41-38 loss to Texas in the Rose Bowl.
USC also said it has added season-opening games against Idaho on Sept. 1, 2007, and against San Jose State on Sept. 5, 2009.
The Trojans had a 48-4 record during the last four years, playing in BCS bowl games following each season and winning three of them.
