The lights were installed in the offseason. Videos had leaked online of some of the tests of the system, only leading to hype for the display’s big unveiling.
Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, and a handful of other schools across the country have installed similar displays. USC officials says in addition to being more impressive, the LED lights are also more energy efficient.
