How ridiculous is it that USC’s homecoming game, against No. 6-ranked Stanford no less, will not even be announced until next Monday, six days before the game.
That is because ESPN has exercised its contractual right to conduct a six-day pick for games on Nov. 16 and the network will choose between USC-Stanford and Utah-Oregon. If ESPN selects the USC-Stanford game, it will air at 5 p.m. PT on ABC. Otherwise it will air at either12:30 p.m. PT on Fox or 1 p.m. PT on Fox Sports 1.
This is only the latest example of how Larry Scott really doesn’t care about the actual Pac-12 fan who attends the games.
