If the Stanford Cardinal football team was thinking about looking past their upcoming road game against the USC Trojans, they better put their thinking caps back on real quick. The Southern California Trojans know what’s at stake in this game, for sure, and the fans in the Los Angeles Coliseum will be rocking.
Sure, Stanford knows how important the Nov. 12 game against Oregon will be. But the Trojans know that a win against Stanford this Saturday could catapult them high in the college football rankings. Even more, with a win against Stanford the USC team could gain the confidence to clobber some of their remaining Pac-12 opponents.
2011 Stanford Cardinal team can go undefeated
The Stanford college football team has a decent chance of going undefeated and reaching the NCAA national college football championship title game. Sure, they need some help by a couple teams ahead of them in the college football standings, but anything is possible.
Let’s look at the schedule for a minute for Stanford. First, under no circumstances should they look past USC this weekend. The Trojans have won six games so far and will win more this season for sure. Stanford has to take care of business at hand and not take USC lightly. But Stanford’s college football team is so good in every way that they likely will not see much stiff competition in the Pac-12. Except for Oregon on Nov. 12.
USC Trojans have won six of seven games, have eyes set on more
The 2011 USC Trojans college football team knows how to win and its record reflects that. But take a close look at their record and you’ll see that they have yet to play the three toughest teams in the conference: Stanford, Washington and Oregon. These games will not be easy wins, not by a very long shot.
Yes, Southern California may have just won a nice road game against Notre Dame and they may be feeling pretty good about it. But good feelings can’t help much against the double threat that Stanford poses with its superior offensive and outstanding defense. USC will need some excellent playmaking and perfect execution to become the victors in this battle royale.
