USC will upgrade its football stadium, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, with new amenities for the 2014 season, the school announced Thursday.

The upgrades include new food selections, improved parking and wireless coverage, and exclusive content shown on the stadium's videoboard during games.

From the school's release:

"We are excited to introduce a number of things that will better our fans' experience when they come to the Coliseum to watch a USC football game," USC athletic director Pat Haden said in a news release. "Our goal is for that experience to begin the moment someone buys a game ticket through the time they return home after the game. We have worked diligently to introduce these new aspects of the fan experience, and I believe Trojan fans will really feel part of the game in ways that are unique to USC and unlike anywhere else in college football."

USC, which last year gained control of the Coliseum, has played there since 1923. The school has announced plans to renovate the stadium.

The Trojans, ranked No. 15 in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll, open the 2014 season at home Aug. 30 against Fresno State.
