USC is searching for back-to-back wins against the Stanford Cardinal in a game that pits one strong defensive squad against a Trojan offense that ran 105 plays last week against Fresno State.

The Cardinal have won four of the past five games in this series, but USC holds recent history, in a 20-17 upset victory at the Coliseum, on their side. Both teams desperately want to start conference play on a strong note, and these rivals will put forth one fantastic effort. The rivalry has recently featured some instant classics and today could quickly be the same.

We want to hear what you have to say! Evan will be calling the game for KXSC Student Radio, which can be listened to live on Shotgun is also traveling up to Palo Alto for the weekend but will be enjoying the game from the stands. We'll both try to chime in when possible (if the in-stadium wireless allows it).

Now let's go #BeatTheFarm and fire away your pregame predictions and those in-game comments.
