Mat Barkley will lead the Trojans in his senior year and as frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy with 10 touchdown passes in two victories. He has career high six TD's last Saturday in a 42-29 victory over Syracuse at East Rutherford, N.J. that delayed for more than an hour due to thunderstorms.
Trojans high flying offense was aided by wideouts Robert Woods with 21 catches for 313 yards, four touchdown and Marquise Lee with 21 receptions of 263 yards in two games.
However, the No.21 Stanford may failed to match USC offense with new quarterback Josh Nunes but the Cardinals can still rely on tailback Stepfan Taylor, who had 99 yards and two scores in last year's win over USC. Stanford will just rely on their rushing game with Taylor who has 185 yards in firts two games as he seeks a third straight 1,000-yard season.
Cardinals coach said, "I think you can say in the last five years they've been three of the most exciting games you can imagine starting with the big upset win down there," David Shaw noted. "We're different teams but we play some exciting football the last two years."
So far, Josh Nunes has divided his pass with five different Cardinal players grabbing at least four of his passes. Check this page for USC vs Stanford live score updates and highlights.
