USC's 2013 football schedule includes two Thursday night games, one Friday night game and the absence of Oregon and Washington.
The Pac-12 Conference released the schedule Thursday.
USC will play 13 regular-season games because the Aug. 29 opener is at Hawaii. NCAA rules allow teams to play 13 games, rather than the maximum 12, if one is in Hawaii.
The Trojans, coming off a 7-6 season, will play seven home games, including nonconference games against Boston College and Utah State. The Trojans also play at Notre Dame.
USC, which plays in the Pac-12 South Division, misses Oregon and Washington as part of a two-year rotation of games against North Division schools.
