USC football is mid-season form routing Fresno State last Saturday in a 52-17 blowout. This Saturday the Trojans will take on the two time defending league champions the Stanford Cardinals. Its expected that Stanford will not be lacking motivation in this heavyweight bout that obviously has championship implications. While it took weeks to find a solid quarterback in 2013 the Trojans settled on QB Cody Kessler who impressed with the blow out of Fresno in Week 1. Stanford also put a beating on its opponent 45-0 UC Davis. The Cardinals lead by QB Kevin Hogan put up a ton of running yards and its expected with RB Barry Sanders the Cardinals will stick with their solid running game.

Point Spread Pick

The USC Trojans appear to have a large edge in experience on the offensive side of the ball especially on the line where the Cardinal returns only 1 starter from last season. The Trojans knocked them off last season 20-17 but were run over for 210 yards. We doubt that will be the case this time around with the new offensive line of Stanford unlikely to be dominate with their lack of experience. Look for Southern Cal to not only get the point spread cover here, but we're going to call for them to put an end the Cardinal 17 game home winning streak.
