We'll have more coverage looking back at USC's 56-48 loss to Stanford in triple overtime at the Coliseum on Sunday and Monday, but this will be for it tonight. Mark Saxon looked at the Trojans' continuing need for a landmark win, Arash Markazi analyzed some of the positive aspects of the game, and we also covered Lane Kiffin's extreme disappointment with the officiating at the end of regulation. We also had the story on Curtis McNeal's mindset after his game-ending fumble, the Trojans' thoughts on Andrew Luck's play and video of the postgame news conference and our grades on the blog.

See what Pullard (six tackles) had to say following the loss:
