The No. 1 Cardinal (14-1-1, 8-0) faces a season-defining weekend as it heads to Los Angeles to play the University of Southern California (5-8-3, 2-4-2) Friday and No. 2 University of California Los Angeles (14-0-2, 7-0-1) Sunday. The matchup with the Bruins will be the pivotal match in Stanford’s season up to this point: losing will guarantee that it falls in the rankings, but winning will more or less assure a fourth-consecutive Pac-12 victory.
