On Saturday, USC will play its 600th game in the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. Since the stadium opened in 1923, the Trojans are 430-136-27 (.748) there, not including 6 wins vacated due to NCAA penalty. Their original record was 436-136-27 (.750). USC is sharing the Coliseum with the NFL's Los Angeles Rams for the next three years, after having shared the stadium with the team from 1946-1979. The Rams are 144-77-8 (.646) in the Coliseum. The Coliseum, which hosted the Olympics in 1932 and 1984, is set to undergo renovations intended to enhance the experience of football fans.
