Stanford @ USC (Saturday, 8 p.m., ABC)

Spread: USC (+7.5)

Maybe the best thing that happened to Stanford last week in their 65-21 win over the Washington Huskies is that Andrew Luck threw for a season low 169 yards. Most people would think that the season low is a bad sign, however the rushing game for the Cardinals is beginning to pick up steam. If Stanford can rack up the points without Luck throwing every they'll be even more dangerous when they roll into Los Angeles this weekend. Monte Kiffin will have a solid gameplan against Luck, but the question is whether the Trojans can execute the plan on the field. Matt Barkley will also be looking to prove that he is one of the best quarterbacks in the country, but he'll get outshined by Andrew Luck, who will tear up the Trojans secondary. USC is turnover prone and with Lane Kiffin on the sidelines the team can unravel quickly. Expect this game to be a high scoring match up and take Stanford as the pick on the road.
