Expo Line

Skip the traffic and Go Metro on game day. Expo Line trains run every six minutes before and after games. Metro’s Silver Line also provides service to the 37th St/USC Station, just a short walk from the stadium. With a 12:30 p.m. kickoff, it’s very doable to use the Metroline or Amtrak for a roundtrip for the Notre Dame game.

Save time by getting a Metro Day Pass on a reusable TAP card before game day. They’re available at hundreds of sales outlets. And if you already have a TAP card, load it with a pass online prior to the game.

Tommy Trojan Game Day Tips

USC Campus –Yes, the Trojans are down from their loss to UCLA last Saturday at the Rose Bowl, but there is still nothing like a Notre Dame game to get your reenergize your attention. Even when both teams are not at the top of their game, it’s still USC vs ND and the tension will be in the air. Neither team wants to drop the last game of the regular season to the other, so the Trojans campus will reflect the arriving Irish and their legion of green-clad fans.

Trojan Bookstore – Let’ face it, Notre Dame fans will be out in force wearing as much green as a lettuce patch. If you don’t want the Coliseum to be overrun with those colors, you’d better be wearing all the cardinal and gold you can find. Check out the Bookstore for anything and everything in Trojans colors or don’t make any comments about the impressive Irish spirit.

Tailgate – As with any USC/Notre Dame game, tailgating spots will be at a premium, especially with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff. We suggest getting to Exposition Park no later than 7 a.m. if not earlier to secure a prime tailgate spot.

Trojan Walk – Figure the TW will take place around 10:15 a.m. for the 12:30 p.m. kickoff.
