PAT’S THOUGHTS:

I was very impressed with Stanford last weekend. SD State was a trendy dog pick, and they completely shut down Bryce Love. Stanford opened it up, and added a dimension to their game. However, don’t forget that Love ran for over 2100 yards last year, and has 4 of his OL back. He will bounce back in a big way this week. USC is always a trendy pick in Vegas, but the money is actually going to Stanford this week at a 65% clip. USC is retooling their O, but should be better on D. Really like the Cardinal here.
