In 6 of the past 9 meetings between Stanford and USC, the game has not been decided until the final play. Cardinal kicker Conrad Ukropina, who beat Notre Dame with his 45-yard boot as time expired this past Saturday, expects that to be the case again in the upcoming Pac-12 championship game. Many of Ukropina's family members are Trojan fans, and the former walk-on earned a Stanford scholarship this year after sealing a September win over USC with a field goal. We'll see if a Rose Bowl berth depends on the Pasadena native's leg this week.
