USC vs. Stanford Live TV: FOX
Stanford has dominated this series over the course of the last few years, and surprisingly, this is the only team that QB Matt Barkley has faced that he hasn’t beaten at least once. The Cardinal have covered four of the last five and six of the last eight in this series, and though we think that USC is going to win this game to finally get the bagel out of the win column in this series, it’s really tough to beat a spread like this one down on “The Farm.” This almost looks too easy. The Trojans are 0-2 ATS and they are playing against a team that has had all sorts of struggles stopping the pass. However, this is still one of the legitimate Top 20 teams in the nation, and the Cardinal definitely have the ability to win this game, though we still don’t think that it will happen.
USC @ Stanford Pick: Stanford Cardinal +8.5
USC @ Stanford Score Prediction: USC 34 – Stanford 28
