LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kevin Hogan passed for 279 yards and two touchdowns, Remound Wright rushed for three more scores and Stanford opened Pac-12 play Saturday with a 41-31 victory over No. 6 Southern California.

Austin Hooper and Devon Cajuste caught touchdown passes as Hogan finally beat USC for the first time in his career, snapping the Trojans' two-game winning streak in this lively rivalry.

Christian McCaffrey rushed for 115 yards for the Cardinal (2-1, 1-0), who scored just six points in their stunning loss to open the season at Northwestern. They looked more like their usual powerhouse selves during a 474-yard offensive performance at the Coliseum, where they've won four times in their last five trips.

Cody Kessler was 25 of 32 for 272 yards and three touchdowns, but USC (2-1, 0-1) couldn't match the steady production of Hogan, who went 18 for 23, and his dominant offensive line.
