Stanford Cardinal vs. USC Trojans Preview and Prediction

  • USC Trojans Football

"This was the first time we beat Stanford in a game I actually played in", USC center Nico Falah said.

Keller Chryst and Stanford were taken down Saturday in a 42-24 loss against USC. "When our fans come out and are loud it helps us as players to have that energy". The sophomore quarterback didn't have the debut most anticipated, as Darnold completed 23 of 33 throws for 289 yards and two picks. Before a crowd of 77,614, the Trojans (2-0, 1-0) pierced Stanford's veteran-studded defense for 623 total yards to 342 for the Cardinal.

However, Bryce Love ended up being the story of the game with his 13 carries for 180 yards and a touchdown. The junior showed little rust against the Owls, completing 14 of 24 throws for 253 yards and two touchdowns. Arcega-Whiteside made a superb catch on the sideline for 39 yards to set up the score. The Cardinal seeks to win a fourth straight against the Trojans (1-0) and to reassert its place in the conference championship race. The roar was equally as loud one play later, when Darnold connected a 25-yard pass to Burnett, who dove and stretched out to snag the ball in the end zone. He then tossed a flawless 11-yard lob to Steven Mitchell Jr. for a touchdown that made it 35-17 USC. An 8-yard pass to Deontay Burnett (9 catches, 121 yards) pushed the ball to the 6.

The Heisman hopeful quarterback delivered several passes that nearly certainly had National Football League scouts and some GMs hoping he'll be available for their teams to draft. His long for the day included a lovely 75-yard touchdown run that tied the game at 7-7 in the first quarter. With a strong supporting cast around him on offense and a stout run game, this will be the test to see if Darnold can elevate his game against strong opposition - and to see if his first week errors were an anomaly or the start of a trend. He faked a run, then pitched to Jones, who scored the touchdown for a 14-7 lead.

The Trojans pulled away from the Broncos for a 49-31 victory in their season opener Saturday, but the defending MAC champions rushed for 263 yards. We are a team that has motivation and we're going to use it to drive us the rest of the year so that way nobody takes a play off, no one takes a practice off (and) we will be driven for the rest of the year to go out and accomplish what we intend to do. The quarterback tossed to a wide open tight end Dalton Schultz for the touchdown.

Facebook Inc (FB) "Stories" Are Completely Failing To Catch On

He ran an electronically timed 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash in high school and was also a national record holder in track and field for the 100 meters as a young teenager.

Quarterback Sam Darnold looked like the preseason Heisman favorite he was hyped to be with 316 passing yards and four touchdowns on a 21-of-26 night. Putting up 62 points was the only shock here, as that's quite a bit for a team not known for their offensive firepower (even against a weak opponent).

Playing against USC is not going to be the same walk in the park as Rice, but the Cardinal are powered by a solid defensive backfield and a stout, experienced defensive front seven led by senior Peter Kalambayi in Week 1.

Darnold was soon at it again. Mitchell led all receivers with 83 yards at the half. "He didn't bust any runs or anything like that, he played great, but there is just a different presence when you have your leader in there".
