No. 20 Stanford hosts No. 2 USC a year after the Cardinal claimed a triple overtime victory in LA. Much has changed for Stanford and they are heavy underdogs, even if the eight point spread does not necessarily reflect that.
I thought I would open up a new thread for this game in light of a pair of Tim Kawakami tweets. For those wondering, Tom Gamble is the 49ers Director of Player Personnel.
49ers presence at Stanford-USC: Just saw execs Trent Baalke and Tom Gamble.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) September 15, 2012
Not a revelation, but Trent Baalke's spending a lot of time watching USC wideouts go through drills. They're not bad.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) September 15, 2012
