Perhaps talk of Stanford’s demise was a little premature.
The Cardinal were largely written off after an opening-week road loss against Northwestern when they were only able to muster six points, and after beating Central Florida, they traveled to Los Angeles to take on USC as a double-digit underdog.
Then Kevin Hogan threw for 279 yards, Christian McCaffery ran for 115 and the Cardinal out-muscled the Trojans to an impressive 41-31 victory. Now ranked No. 21, they’ll look to avoid a letdown when they face Oregon State in Corvallis.
The Beavers have wins over Weber State and San Jose State to go with a big loss at Michigan, and they are 16.5-point underdogs. But they also have one of the most exciting young players in the nation in true freshman Seth Collins, a dynamic athlete who has thrown for 306 yards and four touchdowns and run for 294 and two scores.
Oregon State may not be expected to pull the upset, but it’ll be fun to watch Collins and Co. try.
