SAN JOSE, Calif. — The San Jose State University football team will return to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum when the Spartans face the University of Southern California in a non-conference game on September 7, 2024. Athletics Director Marie Tuite made the announcement on behalf of San Jose State.

The Spartans will be playing USC for the first time since the 2009 season opener for both teams. USC won each of the four previous meetings between these teams in the Coliseum. The Trojans were ranked #7-nationally in 1995, #9 in 2000, unranked to start the 2001 season, and #4 in 2009 heading into the San Jose State game.

The Spartans will be returning to the Los Angeles metropolitan area for football for the first time since 2011 when San Jose State faced UCLA at the Rose Bowl in a non-conference game.

The 2019 Spartans open their season on Thursday, August 29, hosting Northern Colorado in CEFCU Stadium. For tickets to San Jose State football games, visit or call (408) 924-7589.
