USC Game to be on National Television

The season opener pitting San Jose State against The University of Southern California will kickoff at 12:30, the SJSU athletic department announced on Tuesday. Also, the game will be a National Telecast.

This will mark the second season in a row that the Spartans will showcase three games on National Television. The Sept. 5 opener against USC will be televised on Fox SportsNet's Pacific-10 Conference national television package at 12:30 p.m.,, the San Jose State athletic department announced on Tuesday.

"It's appropriate (the national coverage).

"Our team will get a chance to be seen all over the country and are guys are hard at work to put their best foot forward."
