Round-Trip Air Miles for UO, UCLA, USC, UW to B1G Cities

Flying distances from Eugene, Los Angeles, and Seattle to the airports closest to Big Ten schools

Posted on August 6, 2023

How many round-trip air miles will Oregon, UCLA, USC, and Washington have to travel to play fellow Big Ten-member schools in coming years?

We’ve put together a table showing the round-trip distances between Eugene, Los Angeles, and Seattle and the airports closest to each school the former Pac-12 programs will play in coming seasons.

In each case, a charter/direct flight is assumed. Where a team flies commercial, additional miles may be incurred through stopovers. Remember, too, that these numbers don’t include driving miles from the airport to the venue.

Also, the closest airport isn’t always in the home school’s city. For example, when traveling to the University of Maryland, located in College Park, MD, the closest airport is Ronald Reagon National Airport in Washington, D.C.

Below the table, you’ll find a list of the best gameday airports to fly into for each Big Ten school.
