USC Game Notes from Athletic Department
Stanford Game Notes from Athletic Department
"This game changed the directions of both programs; Stanford went on an offensive roll en route to a 10-2 record and their 3rd PAC 12 North title in 4 years. The Trojans lost their coach and their way for a few weeks, and had to struggle to get back to the top of the PAC 12 South. It took the combined effort of newly minted Head Coach Clay Helton and a very talented USC squad to rebound and make it into the PAC 12 title game.
This rematch will be a different style battle.
USC will still look to push the pace, but has relied upon their running game for success the past few weeks. USC still has the services of Senior QB Cody Kessler and top WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, but recently, the Trojans have utilized the talents of Junior RB Justin Davis. Davis torched Oregon and UCLA in the past two weeks for 271 yards on the ground. USC has fully developed a simpler offensive philosophy under Coach Helton, and will look to use this as a way to take down the Cardinal."
