USC has lost to Stanford for the past three consecutive years; with high expectations already in place for the Trojans, they will have to knock that monkey off of their back in 2012.

If last year’s triple-overtime battle is any indication, the September 15 match-up should be one of the biggest games of the season.
With the Trojans more loaded and motivated than ever now that they are Bowl-eligible, they should take down the Cardinal on their march to the BCS National Championship. Let’s take a look at how USC will put Stanford back in its place.
