Stanford Vs. USC: Postgame We Did It Again Celebration Thread

A photo of Heisman favorite Matt Barkley with his face in the turf should move across the wire any minute now. This shot of the future Heisman Runner-Up will do.

For the first time in school history, Stanford has defeated USC four consecutive times. The Stanford defense played out of its collective mind in tonight's 21-14 win, sacking Golden Boy Matt Barkley five times, picking him off twice, and limiting his vaunted receiving duo to nine catches, 149 yards and zero touchdowns. USC was 1-for-13 -- 1 FOR 13! -- on third downs and managed only 26 yards rushing.

Josh Nunes was shaky, but you wouldn't know he was the three-game rookie and Barkley the four-year veteran by the way the two quarterbacks played. Nunes threw one particularly bad interception and underthrew and overthrew wide-open receivers throughout the game, but he also made big plays when he needed to, both with his feet -- dude's got some moves, who knew? -- and his arm.

Stepfan Taylor carried the Cardinal offense. He had a 59-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, a 23-yard touchdown reception in the third and grinded, juked and hurdled his way to 153 yards on 27 carries for the game. Can you say Heisman Runner-Up? We'll have much more from this one in the hours and days to come, but for now, go ahead and rush the comments section with your fellow fans.

Go Stanford!
