In NCAA Football Week 2, we will see Stanford Cardinal at USC Trojans.
Stanford is coming off a 9-4 season where they left some good impressions but overall, they were aiming for more wins. The Cardinal started this season with a 17-7 win over Northwestern. K.J. Costello threw for 152 yards and 1 touchdown in the win while running back Scarlett ran for 97 rushing yards on 22 carries. The receiving core was led by Connor Wedington who finished the game with 7 receptions for 69 yards and was a constant target for the QB.
USC, on the other side, also started the season with a win. They beat Fresno State 31-23 in a game that went back and forth but overall, they controlled and dominated the things that were happening on the field. QB JT Daniels finished the game with 215 passing yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. Running back Vavae Malepeai stole the show and was the main reason for the win as he ran for 134 yards on 23 attempts and he also had a touchdown.
USC looked like the better team in week 1 and moreover, they will be playing at home. The offense is very good and the rushing attack rarely can be stopped. The defense seems to have troubles in some cases but overall, the Trojans will score more points than Stanford and will cover the spread.
