The top-ranked USC Trojans got their season off to a great start on Saturday night with a 49-10 home win over the Hawaii Warriors. Now, Matt Barkley, Marqise Lee and company head to New Jersey to battle the Syracuse Orange in a nationally televised game on ABC.
Saturday afternoon's contest is the first for USC at the new MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and the game billed as the inaugural "New York's College Classic" will be televised at 12:30 p.m. PDT. Sean McDonough, Chris Spielman, and Quint Kessenich will be on the call.
Roxy Bernstein and Gino Torretta will call the game nationally as well for Touchdown Radio.
It is the fourth ever meeting between USC and Syracuse, and the Trojans have won the previous three by an average score of 29-11, including a 38-17 win in Los Angeles last season. Though relatively close to Syracuse, New York, the game will technically be a neutral site contest in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
