3Q: USC 20, Stanford 10

By Kevin Gemmell

LOS ANGELES -- There's the running game.

After it was essentially non-existent in the first half, USC's running game has come alive early in the third quarter behind a pair of Curtis McNeal touchdown runs. He came out on USC's first drive and went 61 yards untouched to give the Trojans a 13-10 lead. It was the first time all season the Cardinal have trailed.

After the Cardinal failed to convert in their own territory when Andrew Luck was sacked, and following a shanked punt, McNeal went in again from 25 yards out.

USC looks completely dominant and for the first time this year, Stanford looks fragile.
