USC Vs. Stanford Score: Cardinal, Trojans Tied At 7

The Stanford Cardinal and the USC Trojans went blow-for-blow in the first quarter, as the two teams find themselves tied, 7-7, after one quarter of play.

The game began with an electric 64-yard kickoff return by Ty Montgomery. However, the Cardinal were unable to put points up in that series, as Jordan Williamson missed a 47-yard field goal attempt that went off of the upright and gave the Trojans the ball at USC's 30-yard line.

The two teams then traded a pair of three-and-out drives before the Trojans answered on offense, largely thanks to a 48 yard gain from Matt Barkley to Nelson Agholor that put the Trojans offense at the Stanford 1-yard line. Running back Silas Redd punched it in (thanks to some help from the offensive line), giving the Trojans the early 7-0 lead.

It didn't take long for the Cardinal to respond and run off a big gain of their own, though. With the ball at Stanford's 41, Stanford captain Stepfan Taylor put on some moves off his own and the running back found himself in the end zone for a 59-yard rushing touchdown.
