This Friday, No. 12 Stanford (9-3, 7-2 Pac-12) will face off against No. 10 USC (10-2, 8-1 Pac-12) in the Pac-12 Championship game at Levi’s Stadium. This will be the second time they’ve met this season, with Stanford losing 42-24 at USC on Sept. 9. The Cardinal is looking for revenge in this rematch against the Trojans, which will have to involve shutting down quarterback Sam Darnold while protecting against the run. They’ll also seek to extend David Shaw’s 3-0 record for Pac-12 Championship Games.

By contrast, USC has farther to travel to get to the game, but it’s coming off of a bye week, making it well-rested for this contest. The Trojans will also be looking for vengeance, though for them it’ll be for the 2015 Pac-12 Championship. Expect a physical, heart-filled matchup. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the last three times Stanford has made it to the Championship.
