No. 13 Stanford, No. 14 USC ready to renew rivalry

Sep 5, 2014 7:31 PM

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - The coaches have changed, and so have the players. The drama has remained the same.

In a series that dates back to 1905, Stanford-Southern California has been among college football's best matchups in recent years. The games have featured action-packed performances, verbal confrontations and usually major implications in conference and national championship races.

The programs will begin another chapter in their long-running rivalry Saturday when new coach Steve Sarkisian and the 14th-ranked Trojans (1-0) visit No. 13 Stanford (1-0) for an early season Pac-12 showdown.

As if the series needed another subplot, Sarkisian's addition is giving it an extra twist.
