USC vs. Stanford: Complete Game Preview

USC (No. 2) opens its 2012 Pac-12 schedule on Saturday in Palo Alto when the Trojans face off against Stanford (No. 21). 

The Cardinal has proven to be a problem for the Trojans over the past several years, including last season when USC fell to the Farm at home 56-48 in three overtimes.

Matt Barkley and the Trojan team look to avenge that loss on Stanford’s home turf.   

Saturday’s game is the 90th meeting between USC and Stanford in a series dating back to 1905. USC leads the series 58-28-3, but Stanford has won the last three matchups and four of the last five.

USC’s last win at the Farm was in 2008 when they beat the Cardinal 45-23. Three of the last five games between these conference foes have been decided by eight points or less, including the last two years.
