USC hosts Utah to start Pac-12 schedule
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Utah will visit Southern California in the first conference game in the newly formed Pac-12 conference next season.
The league released its first football schedule Friday, following the addition of Colorado and Utah to the conference. The season will end Dec. 3 with the championship game at the site of the division winner with the best record.
Oregon and Oregon State will not make trips to Los Angeles in the first season with the Ducks hosting USC and the Beavers hosting UCLA. Washington State will travel to UCLA and Washington will visit USC. Those trips will flip in 2012.
Also, the previously scheduled nonconference game between California and Colorado has been dropped. That forces both schools to fill a game on their schedules.
