UH, USC look to extend series


POSTED: Tuesday, June 02, 2009

Hawaii and USC, already scheduled to meet in 2010's season opener, will apparently add two more dates to their football series.

USC's list of future schedules includes home-and-home dates against Hawaii, with the Warriors and Trojans opening the 2012 season in Los Angeles and in Honolulu in 2013.

“;We're talking to them, but it's not completely finalized,”; UH athletic director Jim Donovan said.

Hawaii and USC have met three times since 1999, the last time in 2005 when the Trojans left Aloha Stadium with a 63-17 win.

The Sept. 1 game in 2012 would give the Warriors back-to-back road games to open the season. UH previously announced a Sept. 8 game at BYU.

The USC Web site lists the 2013 game on Aug. 31.
