PROVO, Utah – Say hello to Pac-12 After Dark featuring BYU football when the Cougars take on the USC Trojans. The kickoff time and TV info were announced for the final BYU game of the 2021 football season. Plan on a late-night to close out the regular season.

BYU and USC will kick off at 8:30 p.m. (MT)/7:30 p.m. (PT) in Los Angeles. The game will be televised on ESPN.

BYU is currently 8-2 overall on the season and ranked No. 14 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. Before the season started, many expected USC to be the team in this matchup that would be high in the Playoff rankings. Instead, the Trojans are wallowing in mediocrity in the Pac-12 Conference with a 3-4 league record and 4-5 mark overall.

After week two of the season, USC fired Clay Helton and appointed assistant Donte Williams as the interim head coach.

USC leads the all-time series against BYU 2-1, with the Cougars winning the most recent matchup in an overtime thriller in 2019.

BYU is looking to cap off a perfect year against Pac-12 teams this season, as USC will be their fifth opponent from the Conference of Champions. Kalani Sitake’s squad is 4-0 this year against teams from the Pac-12.

This will mark BYU’s fifth appearance on ESPN this season. BYU is 3-1 in games played on ESPN this year, with the lone loss coming against future Big 12 rival Baylor in Waco.

The late-night kick for BYU football will conflict with the Cougar basketball team taking on rival Utah at the Jon M. Huntsman Center that same night. BYU versus Utah in hoops tips at 7:30 p.m. on the Pac-12 Network.
