WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 6, 3:30 p.m. ET

WHERE: Stanford Stadium, Stanford, California



The Steve Sarkisian era of USC football began with a bang in a 52-13 rout of Fresno State Saturday. The Trojans have little time to revel in their impressive Week 1 victory, however, because their first road and conference games under the new regime begin USC's Pac-12 championship pursuit in earnest.

Two-time defending league champion No. 11 Stanford welcomes No. 15 USC to The Farm, where the Trojans have not won since 2008.

USC successfully snapped another losing skid to the Cardinal a season ago. A 20-17 USC win last November ended a four-game Cardinal win streak in the series and effectively removed Stanford from the BCS Championship hunt.

Stanford won't be lacking for motivation in a heavyweight bout with early, yet very real championship implications.

"We do have a chip on our shoulder," Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan said at Pac-12 media days. "We've been successful, but that can't stop us from being the hunters rather than the hunted."
