New-look Cardinal ready to go

LOS ANGELES -- On Saturday, Stanford (2-0) will host USC (2-0) in the Pac-12 season opener for both teams. The Cardinal have taken three in a row from the Trojans, including a 56-48 triple-overtime victory last season. But with Andrew Luck now gone to the NFL, Stanford has a new face at quarterback in Josh Nunes, and its defense will need a lights-out performance as it goes up against the high-powered USC offense.

Scoring: 35.0 points (No. 7 Pac-12, No. 40 overall)

Rushing: 123.5 yards (No. 8 Pac-12, No. 91 overall)
