USC WBB will compete against NFL and College Football Playoff Dec. 21

USC women’s basketball is a leading contender for the 2025 Women’s Final Four. So is UConn. It’s absolutely fantastic that Lindsay Gottlieb and Geno Auriemma were able to arrange a home-and-home series the next two seasons to take advantage of the programs’ high profiles on the national scene. This year is the first installment of that home-and-home series, with USC going to Storrs to face the Huskies on the road. The game is on Saturday, December 21. When the initial report of the game’s scheduled date emerged, it didn’t seem like a problem. Now, however, there are fresh problems. NBC and Fox have both scheduled NFL games on December 21, the same Saturday as the College Football Playoff first round. A Fox executive has specifically released one key detail about Fox’s NFL game on December 21. This is creating a real headache for American sports fans. USC could get squeezed in the process. We will explain all of this:

USC-UCONN PLANT THE FLAG ON DECEMBER 21

FOX EXECUTIVE: NFL GAME ON DECEMBER 21, FOLLOWED BY USC-UCONN

CONFLICT

You can see what’s happening: If the Fox NFL game on December 21 comes before USC-UConn, that guarantees that USC-UConn is either a mid-afternoon or evening game. The College Football Playoff, on ESPN or ABC, will air during USC-UConn on Fox. USC-UConn might also air while the NBC NFL game is going on as well, but the time slot for the NBC NFL game has not been revealed.
