In the upset of the week, the No. 21 Stanford Cardinal will use the home-field advantage to upset the No. 2 ranked USC Trojans.
The Cardinal struggled in Week 1 against San Jose State, barely escaping with the 20-17 victory. The rebounded against Duke in Week 2, putting up 50 points against the Blue Devils.
Stanford is led by junior quarterback Josh Nunes, who has thrown for 400 yards and four touchdowns on the year. Senior running back Stepfan Taylor has led the Cardinal ground attack, rushing for 185 yards and two touchdowns in 2012.
USC continues to be one of the top teams in the country, scoring over 40 points in both its first two games.
The Trojans are led by potential No. 1 draft pick, quarterback Matt Barley. All-American receiver Robert Woods and Penn State transfer, running back Silas Redd, help make the Trojans one of the most prolific offenses in the country.
While all the numbers this year suggest an easy USC victory, the Cardinal have other plans.
Don't forget that Stanford has knocked off the Trojans four of the last five times they have played. Throw in a nationally-televised, prime time home game, and the Cardinal faithful will be going home happy.
