The Trojans Walk happens 2 hours and 45 minutes prior to home kickoffs. So, this week the Trojans Walk for the UCLA game will begin at 9:45 a.m. Fans are encouraged to arrive early for “The Walk” to get a good spot to welcome the team as they ready to do battle with the Bruins.

This could be the last Trojan Walk for All-America quarterback Caleb Williams if he turns pro as expected.
