It’s an early Pac 12 showdown that could go a long ways to deciding the champion of the conference. The Stanford Cardinals make the trip to Los Angeles to take on the USC Trojans.
The Cardinals have won seven of the last nine games played between the two teams.
The Stanford Cardinals come into this game with a 1-0 record and have had an extra week to rest and get prepared for this showdown.
They played their first game on August 26th against the Rice Owls in Australia. The game was basically decided from the opening kick off and the Cardinals won by a final score of 62-7.
The seven points that the Owls scored were in the last minute of the game, so they were close to having a nice shutout to start the season.
Senior quarterback Keller Chryst looked good in his first start of the season. He threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns, and got to sit most of the second half off.
The defense looked really good against the Owls, but they were also playing the Owls a team that isn’t very good.
In this game the defense is going to need to be really good against a very good Trojans offense. If they want to win this game it’s all going to start with the offense.
On the other side of this match up is the USC Trojans who also come into this game off an opening week win, but their win was not as sure, and they got quite the scare.
They played the Western Michigan Broncos, and they gave them everything they could handle. Even though they won 49-31 the game was much closer even in the fourth quarter.
The defense really struggled, and that kept the Broncos in the game. They need to step up more in this game, and really try to create some turnovers.
Sam Darnold, a Heisman Trophy hopeful also really struggled in this game. Although he threw for 289 yards he didn’t have any touchdowns and two interceptions.
In this game the Trojans want to win this game Darnold needs to be a lot better. They can’t expect him to struggle again in this game and to get a win, because it won’t happen, they will be upset.
