The Nevada football program has finalized its non-conference schedules for the 2021 and 2022 seasons and will play USC as part of its 2023 schedule.

The 2021 season will kick off with a road game on Sept. 4 at Cal as the Wolf Pack returns to California Memorial Stadium for the first time since beating the Bears to open the 2012 season. Nevada will open the home portion of the schedule on Sept. 11 by hosting Idaho State of the Big Sky Conference. The Pack will then play at Kansas State on Sept. 18. The final non-conference game of the 2021 season will be Oct. 9 against former Big West and WAC rival New Mexico State.

In 2022, Nevada will open the year returning the game at New Mexico State on Aug. 27 before coming home to take on Texas State on Sept. 3 at Mackay. The game with the Bobcats is the first of a two-game series as Nevada will travel to San Marcos, where it won in 2012, as part of its 2023 non-conference schedule. Nevada will stay at home to take on Incarnate Word, an FCS school from San Antonio, at Mackay on Sept. 10 before traveling to Iowa for the final non-conference game on Sept. 17.

Nevada will take on USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to open the 2023 season and the game will be the first in the modern era between the Wolf Pack and the Trojans. The teams played five times in the 1920s with USC winning each matchup but the 1929 game in Los Angeles was the last between the schools. In 2023, USC will be celebrating the 100th year of the Coliseum and Nevada was part of the inaugural schedule, and the second-ever collegiate varsity game, at the famed stadium in its first year in 1923.
