The teams were notified of the postponement in the afternoon before either had arrived at the Galen Center. The postponement was announced about 21/2 hours before the game's scheduled 6:30 p.m. start.  

The Pac-12 will work with both programs to attempt to find a mutually agreeable date to reschedule the game.   

Additional information on the status of USC's home game against the University of San Francisco Wednesday and at Oregon State next Sunday will be provided later.
