The Jim L. Mora era at UCLA will open Sept. 1 at Rice and features home games against Nebraska and Houston in nonconference games, the school announced Wednesday, but the big news is that the USC game on Nov. 17 will not be the season-ending game for the first time since 2002.
UCLA will play Stanford in its regular-season finale Nov. 24.
The Bruins also do not have any Thursday or Friday games next season and also catch a break again by not having to play Oregon or Washington.
All games will be broadcast live nationally by the Pac-12 television partners of FOX, ESPN and the new Pac-12 Conference Network. Exact broadcast schedules and game times are still to be determined.
