Coming out of a two-year bowl ban, USC had national title hopes. Now the Trojans will have to climb out of a hole to get there.
A sold-out crowd at Stanford Stadium rushed the field, tossing streamers and jumping in a wild celebration at midfield with Stanford coach David Shaw and players caught in the middle of the mess. The Cardinal (3-0, 1-0) are 3-0 for the third straight season for the first time since 1970-72 and have their longest winning streak ever against USC.
