Conduit Size

I'm installing a 2-2-2-4 SER cable between house and detached garage. I'm assuming the SER is not direct bury, so what is the minumum size NEC allows using gray PVC conduit for this cable. I will have a LB at the house and garage.

SER is not listed for use underground, with or without raceway.

Need to use USE, xhhw, or THWN.

Or 2-2-2-4 URD.
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
