#3 Stanford @ San Diego State

San Diego, CA

San Diego Sand Trap
Stanford perseveres against feisty Aztecs in SoCal

SAN DIEGO, CA - San Diego State's transition from the Mountain West to the Pac-12 has been bumpy, as they slid from a 12-1 season in 2011 to 5-7 last year in their first year in the big leagues. On Saturday against Stanford, the Aztecs pushed the Cardinal to the wall, seeking that one victory that would get them over the hump and establish credibility in the conference.

But it was not to be, as Stanford choked off SDSU star running back Ronnie Hillman and finally broke through themselves on offense in the second half, erasing a 10-0 deficit and outlasting the Aztecs, 17-10.

The first half was a disaster, as Jordan Williamson missed two field goals and Brett Nottingham threw two crucial interceptions, one for a defensive touchdown and another in the endzone to derail a scoring opportunity. Thankfully the defense was up to the task, dominating the line of scrimmage and offering the Aztecs' offense no breathing room. That gave the Cardinal's offense time to get its act together.

"Things certainly got interesting in the first half," Brian Kudron said afterward. "We were very out of sync offensively, no cohesion to our playcalling or execution. Last year that probably would've buried us. But I'm very pleased with where our defense is at right now. Although we certainly have to tighten things up on the offensive side of the ball, it's reassuring to know that our defense is zeroed in right now and will give us some leeway if we need time to fix things on the other side."

Stanford won't have the luxury of waiting around next week, as they face the treacherous task of traveling to the Smurf Turf to face Boise State, where the Broncos haven't lost in the regular season in a dozen years.

Injury Report
Game Notes
At first glance, Stanford appears to be a close but clear favorite headed into this matchup. Boise State, however, has the one factor that is more than an equalizer: the fabled blue turf that gives the Broncos an almost surreal homefield advantage. Boise's regular season home winning streak now stands at an incredible 78 games, having not lost since 2001 to Washington State.

That intangible aside, the Broncos are still a very talented team, and will pose an exceptionally difficult opponent for Stanford. Senior QB Joe Southwick has nine touchdowns to only one interception and a 60% completion rate early this season. Boise has also leaned on an almost Stanford-like running game, anchored by 6'3, 235-pound sophomore Damon Morrow and 6'2, 227-pound freshman Eric Riley. Junior Matt Miller is BSU's #1 receiving threat, but senior tight end Gabe Linehan is a major pass catcher as well.

Defensively, Kharyee Marshall is very undersized at defensive end, but he has speed that can give opposing tackles trouble if they don't lock onto him immediately. Rumor out of Stanford practice this week is redshirt freshman Kevin Kelly will replace senior Cameron Fleming in the starting lineup at left tackle. Senior Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe anchors the middle of the Broncos' front and helps free up their sophomore MIKE linebacker, budding star Reggie Ervin of Orange, California. In the secondary the Broncos have a mix of experience and youth, led by seniors Ebenezer Makinde, Jeremy Ioane, Andrew Jones and Jonathan Brown, and underclassmen Jonathan Morris, Rasheed Callahan, Larry Scott, Beau Glover, Brandon Heard, and Vince Buckley. Morris in particular is one to keep an eye on. The 6'1, 186-pound true freshman from Albany, Oregon was one of the top defensive recruits on Stanford's big board last year, and it was considered a big loss when he picked Boise over the Cardinal.

#3 Stanford @ #16 Boise State

Boise, ID
September 21, 2013

Home Wreckers
Stanford shows no fear, conquers the blue turf of Boise

BOISE, ID - After Boise State's stunning touchdown in the 4th quarter, what ensued seemed to suggest that the Broncos really did have sort of divine voodoo on their home field.

It was incredulous enough that Boise connected for a 46 yard touchdown pass on 4th and 9 early in the 4th quarter, having been reduced to desperation in the face of a 17-3 deficit. But afterward, Stanford corner Quinn Fogle exploded off the edge and blocked the extra point - only to have Boise scoop the ball up and run it in for two points. Suddenly the game was a precarious 17-11.

But that turned out to be the last time the Broncos touched the ball, as Stanford ate up the final 8:45 of the game thanks to five third down conversions and 13 carries by Anthony Wilkerson. And for the first time in a dozens years, the Broncos left their home field on the wrong side of the scoreboard, as Stanford laid siege to the Smurf Turf with the grueling 17-11 victory.

"It wasn't pretty, but I think this is the best game we've played since I got here over two years ago," a Gatorade-soaked Brian Kudron said on the field afterwards. "We knew what it was going to take to win here, one of the most intimidating venues in this sport. We had to run the ball at our best and play our best defense. And we did both of those things. Our defense put the hammer on them for three quarters, and when they finally got us, our offense responded by killing the clock. I'm really proud of these kids. We proved a lot today, as a team."

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Stanford lands Johnson, Ross
2014 class exploding out of the gates for the Cardinal

PALO ALTO, CA - Aaron Johnson was actually afraid Stanford wouldn't want him.

The 5'11, 175-pound 5-star receiver from prestigious Oaks Christian High School in Thousand Oaks in Southern California had his fears assuaged a few weeks ago, and now he is the price jewel of Stanford's 2014 recruiting class.

"I've loved Stanford for a long time now," Johnson said. "I love their offense, and my parents have made sure I value academics above everything else. So Stanford's been my favorite school for a few years now. I was just nervous they wouldn't be into me that much, because they like bigger, more physical receivers than me, so I was scared they'd take a pass on me because I'm smaller. But Coach Kudron reassured me of that right away, he told me that while they prefer their wideouts to be taller and bigger, if a guy's fast enough and explosive enough, size doesn't matter to them, and thankfully I'm pretty fast."

"Pretty fast" is an understatement. Timed at 4.28 in the 40-yard dash, Johnson is one of the fastest high school athletes in the country, and will introduce a whole new dimension to Stanford's offense with his ability to stretch the field.

Elsewhere, Stanford's pipeline into Texas has continued to produce quality results. A year after plucking star linebacker Matt Turner out of Skyline High School in Dallas, the Cardinal has once again gone to the Lone Star State for their prized linebacker, closing ranks on Houston Cy-Creek star Michael Ross, the nation's #1 inside linebacker prospect and 44th-ranked player overall. Ross was also receiving heavy interest from TCU, Texas, and Oklahoma, but Stanford made quick work of his recruitment by prioritizing him.

"Coach Kudron is one of the best defensive minds in the country, and for him to tell me I was the most important player on their board meant a ton to me," Ross said. "Texas guys have been having success at Stanford the last few years, and I got to know Matt (Turner) on the camp circuit last year, so I'm very comfortable with Stanford and very comfortable with my decision."

Game Notes
Revenge is the name of the game for Stanford, who will look to even the score after last year's fourth quarter collapse in Provo. The major factor in Stanford's favor is home field, where the Cardinal has established a fearsome reputation, particularly under coach Brian Kudron in his 2+ years on The Farm. In his tenure, Stanford is 17-0 at Stanford Stadium, with an average score of 42.7 to 11.4. In other words, it is extraordinarily difficult to even stay close against the Cardinal on its home field now.

To make things worse for the visiting Cougars, they are without four starters, including two of the best players in linebacker Kyle Van Noy and star receiver Cody Hoffman. Hoffman had 989 yards and 8 touchdowns last season, and had 249 yards and 4 touchdowns so far this year. Also missing are starting guard Quentin Maynard and true freshman starting safety Dedrick Brantley.

That's not to say BYU is crippled, especially on offense. Senior QB Jake Heaps is one of the Pac-12's best, and senior Josh Quezada and sophomore Brian Romero are both physical running backs over 200 pounds. Even without Hoffman, BYU's receiving corps is formidable with senior speedster JD Falslev and senior tight ends Marcus Mathews and Austin Holt. 6'3, 208-pound junior Ross Apo will be counted on to fill in for the 6'4, 211-pound Hoffman.

Defensively BYU may find themselves up against it, especially without Van Noy. Senior end Graham Rowley will be the primary focus for Stanford's offensive line, as he already has 6.5 sacks on the year. Other players of note include junior MIKE linebacker Zac Stout, senior strong safety Daniel Sorensen, and 328-pound junior nose tackle Tavis Tuiloma.
