What to Know

Stanford will square off against USC at 10:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at United Airlines Field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Stanford will be hoping to build upon the 17-3 win they picked up against USC the last time they played.

After losing to Northwestern the last time they met, the Cardinal decided to demonstrate that turnabout is fair play. Stanford took their game against Northwestern last week 17-7.

Meanwhile, USC gave their fans exactly what they wanted out of a home opener. They were able to grind out a solid victory over Fresno State, winning 31-23.

The Cardinal are expected to lose this next one by 3. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last Saturday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Cardinal ranked eighth worst in the nation with respect to rushing yards per game last year, where the squad accrued only 107.9 on average. The Trojans ranked 20th worst in the nation with respect to penalties last season, where the team accrued 96. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
