The Trojans are throwing for just shy of 400 yards per game while rushing for an additional 187.5 per game. Caleb Williams, who won the Heisman a season ago, has thrown for 597 yards and nine touchdowns through the first two games.

Marshawn Lloyd is the top running back for the Trojans so far. Lloyd has carried the ball 16 times this season for 118 yards and a touchdown. Tahj Washington is the top receiver with five receptions, 160 yards, and three touchdowns.

USC has back-to-back road games following this, with a trip to Arizona State followed by a trip to Colorado.

Stanford Faces Tough Week Two Test

The Stanford Cardinal face a tough Week Two test before they finally play a home game. Next week, Stanford hosts Arizona State, the first of three straight home games. The following two games see Arizona and Oregon come to town before a trip to Colorado on October 13th.

In the Week One win over Hawaii, quarterback Ashton Daniels tossed for 248 yards and two touchdowns. Benjamin Yurosek, the tight end, was the go-to target in the game. He caught nine passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in the game. In the run game, Casey Filkins was the man with six carries, but he could not get into the end zone in the game.

Stanford was excellent against the run in the game. Hawaii attempted to run the football 16 times in the game and came away with just -5 yards. The longest run of the game was 21, but several runs for loss sent them well below zero.

Trojans Roll Saturday Night over Cardinal

Stanford is going to be outclassed in this game. That’s no doubt. The USC Trojans offense is tough to stop, and Stanford just does not have the guys to do it quite yet. Look for USC to get off to another quick start and not look back. The USC Trojans are going to win this game and cover the spread.

When you bet this game on Saturday, take the USC Trojans -29.5 over the Stanford Cardinal on Friday night.
