USC Trojans Make Big Ten Conference Debut Against SEC Powerhouse LSU Tigers on September 1

Tickets to this season’s highly anticipated Vegas Kickoff Classic football game pitting USC against LSU at Allegiant Stadium go on sale Thursday (April 25).


The storied Trojans will play their first game as members of the Big Ten Conference against the SEC powerhouse Tigers on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2024, at 4:30 p.m. PT (7:30 p.m. ET). The game will be televised by ABC and simulcast on ESPN+.


Tickets, which start at $120, will be available by visiting the website www.lvbowl.com.


“Fans who have been waiting for this historic matchup since we first announced it three years ago can now get their tickets to what we expect will be a full house at Allegiant Stadium,” said John Saccenti, executive director of the Vegas Kickoff Classic and SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl. “The nation will be watching on Labor Day Weekend as the Trojans and Tigers kick off their 2024 seasons in the Entertainment and Sports Capital of the World.”


USC and LSU have met only two times previously when the Trojans defeated the Tigers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 1979, before LSU won the 1984 rematch in Los Angeles. LSU has never played a game in the Silver State, while USC appeared in two Las Vegas Bowls (2001 and 2013) played at Sam Boyd Stadium and the 2022 Pac-12 Conference Football Championship at Allegiant Stadium.


The Vegas Kickoff Classic is owned and operated by ESPN.
