Game Notes
With two games left in the regular season, and the Big Game against a resurgent Cal team next week, Stanford is anxious to get back onto their home field and rid themselves of the demons that plagued them on the road all season. To that end, 3-6 Oregon State may be in for a very long evening in Palo Alto, especially with the Cardinal planning on breaking out an all-black look with their uniforms, and several very prominent recruits planning on being in attendance.


Senior Ryan Katz has struggled at QB for the Beavers, with only 13 touchdowns to 8 interceptions and a completion percentage below 50. To make matters worse, star wideout Markus Wheaton has missed most of the season with a back injury, and will not be available against Stanford, either. In his stead, senior Jordan Bishop leads the team with 42 receptions and 626 yards. Tight end Colby Prince is a big, reliable target, and leads OSU with four touchdown catches. Their running game is skittish at best, however. Jordan Jenkins leads the way with 577 yards, but only 4.2 yards a carry. True freshman Dwayne Rankin is second on the team with 408 yards rushing, and leads the team with a paltry three rushing touchdowns.


Defensively, the Beavers are traditionally well-coached and very disciplined, even if they aren't the most talented bunch. They have an impressive linebacking corps of Shaydon Akuna (73 tackles, 1.5 sacks), Feti Unga (55 tackles), and Rueben Robinson (55 tackles, 3.5 sacks), and cornerback Jordan Poyer is an all-Pac 12 candidate, leading the Beavers with four interceptions. OSU starts four seniors on the defensive line, led by end Rudolf Fifita. Taylor Henry is dependable at the other end, and Castro Masaniai and Andrew Seumalo are enormous on the inside, weighing in at 336 and 285 pounds, respectively.

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)


Oregon State @ #25 Stanford
Stanford Stadium
Palo Alto, CA
November 10, 2012




Gaffney Leads Blackout of Beavers
Stanford running game doesn't miss a beat without Wilkerson

PALO ALTO, CA - On the first play from scrimmage, Oregon State's Jordan Jenkins ran right through a Stanford blitz and jogged 80 yards for a touchdown. He would do the same thing in the second quarter, and in the third quarter, Stanford QB Brett Nottingham threw three interceptions, one of which was taken back for a score.

All of the above added up to a much closer game than was expected, but Tyler Gaffney filled in flawlessly for Anthony Wilkerson, grinding Oregon State down to the tune of 212 yards and two scores as Stanford won their seventh game of the season, 34-24.

"This was one of the weirder games we've had here," coach Brian Kudron said. "We had the ball basically all game, our running game was top notch, and yet two busted plays on defense and one dreadful quarter where we turned the ball over, and the game was a nail biter."

When asked about Wilkerson's status for the Big Game against Cal next week, the Stanford coach was non-committal.

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Kudron lands his Quarterback
Stanford steals Mater Dei's Williams from USC

PALO ALTO, CA - Several years ago, Matt Leinart quarterbacked USC to three straight BCS bowl games, winning the 2005 National Championship and the Heisman Trophy for the 2004 season. Presently, Matt Barkley is finishing his fourth year at the helm for the Trojans, and has them on the brink of their second straight Pac-12 title game and a shot at the Rose Bowl.

And now, the latest star quarterback to come from Mater Dei High in the Orange County haven of Santa Ana is headed to the Pac-12 as well.

The difference is, this one has said no to USC and is headed up the coast to play for Brian Kudron at Stanford.

5-star signal caller Shane Williams made the call shortly after Stanford's win against Oregon State, officially committing to his longtime favorite over other pursuers, including USC, Alabama, and Florida.

"It would've been easy to pick SC, with the Mater Dei lineage they've got going," Williams said. "But I really like Stanford's offense, and I love what Andrew Luck and now Brett Nottingham have done the last few years. Coach Kudron told me from the start I was the #1 guy on their board, and they wanted me to continue the legacy they're building at the quarterback position."

At 6'5, 232 pounds, Williams, the 2nd-ranked QB in the 2013 class, has a commanding pocket presence and an abundance of arm strength that fits an NFL-style offense to a tee. Pigeon-holing him as a statue would be a mistake, however. Williams won't remind anyone of Michael Vick or Vince Young, but he'll give Stanford fans flashes of Andrew Luck with his ability to move around and take off when needed, a skill that Brett Nottingham has struggled with.

Landing their star QB made the weekend a success as is, but Stanford's coaching staff roped in three additional 4-star players in addition to Williams: tight end/wide receiver Ryan Mitchell of Cathedral City (CA), safety Curtis Webb of Steamboat Springs (CO), and linebacker Jeff Charles of Palm Springs (CA). Mitchell isn't the jumbo-sized tight end Stanford has specialized in recently, weighing in at only 221 pounds. He may actually start his career as a big, physical wide receiver. Charles, too, doesn't fit the mold sizewise. At 220 pounds, normally Stanford would take a pass on him, as the 3-4 defense requires bigger linebackers. Charles, however, has speed and instincts that are second to none, and Stanford's coaches apparently think he'll be able to make up for his lack of ideal size. Webb, on the other hand, does look the part at 6'2, 199 pounds, and while he isn't the fastest, he also has good instincts, and he hits like a freight train. He's drawn comparisons to Oregon safety John Boyett.

Meanwhile, Stanford's #1 defensive target in this class, 4-star Chandler (AZ) Hamilton nose tackle Andrew Edwards was also in town for the win over the Beavers. Although he hasn't reached a decision yet, he made it clear that following his visit, Stanford is now the team to beat for his services.

Game Notes
Cal has snuck up on everybody this year, and has a great chance to steal the Pac-12 North title with a win over archrival Stanford and a loss by Boise State. The Bears are led by an impressive 1-2 punch at running back in seniors Isi Sofele (895 yards, 5.4 YPC, 8 TDs) and CJ Anderson (713 yards, 5.9 YPC, 10 TDs). This has been a requirement due to superstar receiver Keenan Allen rupturing a disk in his back in the season opener, an injury that ended his junior season. Without him, Cal's passing game has been scaled back substantially. Zach Maynard's passing numbers are pedestrian (2052 yards, 13 TDs, 8 INTs, 54%), and his primary targets now are tight end Spencer Hagan (43 receptions, 585 yards, 2 TDs) and sophomore wideouts Kaelin Clay (39-499-1) and Maurice Harris (28-426-3). Stanford's goal will absolutely be to make Maynard beat them with his arm.


Defensively, the Bears are as smothering as ever, ranking 1st in the Pac-12 in total defense and 2nd in both pass and run defense. As usual, they run the same 3-4 scheme Stanford deploys. Up front, Deandre Coleman, Aaron Tipoti, Todd Barr and Kendrick Payne provide a versatile mixture of agility and brute force. One player to possibly keep an eye on is sophomore nose guard Viliami Moala out of Grant Union High in Sacramento. Moala weighs in at 356 pounds, and could provide serious trouble for Stanford's iso running game.


At linebacker, Cal hasn't missed a beat, even with Mychal Kendricks and DJ Holt gone from last year's squad. David Wilkerson and Nick Forbes lead the team in tackles, and Dan Camporeale and Chris McCain are pass rushers from the outside.


In the secondary the Bears go four-deep at corner with Marc Anthony, Stefan McClure, Steve Williams and Josh Hill. Anthony leads the team with four interceptions, followed by McClure with three. The Bears are young at safety, with first year starters at both spots in sophomores Avery Sebastian and Michael Coley.

Big Game Beatdown
Stanford opens the floodgates after halftime to steamroll Cal

PALO ALTO, CA - As the clock hit 0:00 and All Right Now started to blast from the Stanford band, Cardinal coach Brian Kudron was able to do something he hasn't been able to do all season.

He smiled.

After a tight and tense first half, Stanford outscored their rivals from Berkeley 31-0 in the second half to run away with their third straight Big Game victory, 37-7.

"I couldn't be prouder of these kids," a Gatorade-soaked Kudron said afterward. "We faced a lot of adversity this year, and we didn't live up to all the goals we set for ourselves before the season, but this is always the most important game on the schedule, and our guys played like it today. It was really tight at halftime, but our seniors took charge, and after that I knew they wouldn't let this team lose to Cal in their last home game. It's a testament to the leadership on this team, and that will instill leadership in the underclassmen moving forward."

The difference between the first and second half was Stanford's vaunted running game. Cal's defense crushed it in the first half, and the Cardinal had a stunning 12 yards net rushing at halftime, only to explode behind Tyler Gaffney and later Anthony Wilkerson, finishing with 156 yards. Wilkerson was initially held out despite being cleared from his concussion, but he took over in the second half after Gaffney went down with a sprained elbow in the third quarter.

At eight wins, Stanford is likely in line for a spot in anywhere from the Holiday Bowl to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.
