Game Facts

USC facts

Stanford is USC's oldest rival, with the teams first playing in 1905.

Offensive guards Toa Lobendahn and Damien Mama became the first pair of freshmen to start a season opener on the offensive line in school history.

In last season's matchup, Andre Heidari kicked a 47-yard field goal with 19 seconds left to give USC a 20-17 win over the Cardinal.

The Trojans set a Pac-12 record for plays in the win over Fresno State, running 105 for 701 yards.

USC is coming off a turbulent season-opening week that saw cornerback Josh Shaw admit that he lied about saving his drowning nephew and running back Anthony Brown quit the team while calling head coach Steve Sarkisian a racist.

Stanford facts

The Cardinal have won five of the last seven games between the teams.

All-American kick returner Ty Montgomery returned from shoulder surgery to score two touchdowns in the season opener, including a 60-yard punt return touchdown.

Stanford had three scoring drives that lasted less than a minute against UC Davis and another that took 2:58.

With South Carolina's loss to Texas A&M last Thursday, Stanford now owns the nation's longest current home winning streak at 17 games.

Devon Cajuste, the team's No. 2 wide receiver, is expected to play against USC after being suspended for the season opener for a violation of team rules.
