As any good USC Trojan fan can tell you, the best place to watch the men of Troy is right at home in the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Nothing can beat the familiarity of this temple of tradition where the ghosts of 89 years of all things "Trojan" permeate the very souls of their rabid fans.
Of course, the haters will tell you that a successful trip to the coliseum is one that you simply survive, but fans of USC will simply shrug and say that this component only adds to the aura of the stately shrine of so many sporting memories through the decades.
Of course, the Trojans cannot play all of their games at home and this year, five excursions must be taken by the Trojans under the auspices of their 2011 schedule.
And this year that road schedule offers USC fans some great venues, interesting games and in one case, a historic event that will feature something that has never happened before.
Each slide will provide an overview of the game and a slide for the particulars of each venue and city.
So for those fans willing to gas up the station wagon and follow their beloved Trojans to the end of the earth (is that what they are calling South Bend these days?), here is a guide for your road enjoyment and a list of the best road trips for 2011.
We'll leave the light on for you.
