For those twiddling their thumbs without a tailgate to attend, be sure to check out the upcoming December lineup for all your USC sports.
Beginning with this weekend, there is a schedule full of great games, with two tests Thursday for the Women of Troy, in both basketball and volleyball.
If women's volleyball beats the Fighting Illini, USC will face crosstown rival UCLA in the final on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. PST. Both the Final Four and finals will be broadcast on ESPN2.
Also on the 15th, the men and women's swimming and diving teams will compete in the U.S. Winter National Diving Championships. The underwater competition continues through the weekend.
