USC game day protocols

Recommended Posts

No tailgating on campus.  Must wear masks during the game even if vaccinated. Can’t walk on campus without verification. 
 

This is definitely going to hurt their attendance.  SJSU had to cancel their Alumni tailgate that was to be held on the USC campus.  Add in a warm afternoon and I’m rethinking whether I want to attend the game this weekend.  
 

Hot + Mask - Tailgating = doesn’t sound all that fun.

Hopefully a ton of USC fans feel the same way, and their team is disjointed because of it.

Bummer, I went to my first USC game and tailgate a couple years ago and it was an awesome experience. The whole campus is a big tailgate and lots of fun.

 

I really think SJSU can win this one, it would be huge for the conference!

I’m making the final call on buying tickets tomorrow. Covid protocols won’t factor into the decision. They amount to minor inconveniences and are a small price to pay in exchange for a safer experience.

Class fans and they know the game. (Unlike FresTuckie)

Good luck- I sense an upset!

Hey Sparta, it’s up to us to salvage the weekend. You guys got a taller order but then again, you’re the defending champs.

Yep, this conference runs through Reno and San Jose now, Boise had a nice run :D.

I decided not to go. It’s going to be hotter than hell. 90 degrees will feel like 100 packed in with all those sweaty Trojan fans who have never even set foot on campus. I’ll watch at home.

Have you? Unless traveling fans like Notre Dame fill up the stadium it's never close to full. 

Not sure where you came up with that. USC has had top 25 national attendance rankings 9 out of 10 years between 2010-2019. They ranked 1st in attendance in the PAC-12 7 out of 10 years and 2nd the other 3 years. They've averaged 72,036 fans over that entire timespan and 66,261 fans between 2015-2019.

Oregon at USC in 2019, announced crowd of 63k.... actual crowd

 

The Oregon-USC game this season kicked off to a less-than full crowd in Los Angeles.

usc has a terrible fan base considering their past success

Every teams announced crowd is different from actual butts in the seats. UCLA had to donate tickets to military families and local high schools for the LSU game today. A few donors bought the remaining tickets for Nebraska to keep the sellout streak alive. Nick Saban has called out the student section for not showing up en masse for games. An article from 2020 showed that attendance was at a historic low, and 4 of 5 P5 conferences saw attendance declines.

Winning cures all. But USC will most likely continue its top 25 national attendance ranking and top ranking in the PAC-12.
