Game Notes
The Beavers started the year 4-1 and won their first two Pac-12 games, but have since dropped four in a row, three of them in humilating fashion, including a 31-6 loss to Cal last week in Corvallis. Senior QB Cody Vaz has been very mediocre this season, throwing only eight touchdowns, and matching that with eight interceptions. Standout senior tailback Jovan Stevenson (537 yards, 7 TDs) is out with an elbow injury, but sophomore Dwayne Rankin is a physical runner at 6'2, 200 pounds, and has 716 yards and six touchdowns of his own. The Beavers' passing game is dismal, but wideout Brandin Cooks (49 receptions, 628 yards, three touchdowns) and tight end Tyler Perry (28-465-1) should be accounted for by Stanford's defense.

Defensive end Scott Crichton leads Oregon State up front with 5.5 sacks on the season, followed by three from Blake Harrah. Senior SAM linebacker Michael Doctor and redshirt freshman WILL linebacker (and one-time Stanford target) CJ Henderson are tied for the team lead with 56 tackles apiece. Standout Shaydon Akuna suffered a slight tear of the ACL in the season opener, but may be ready to return on Saturday.

In the secondary, senior corner Rashaad Reynolds leads the Beavers with four interceptions. Strong safety Josh Lagrone is a ferocious hitter, and has forced and recovered two fumbles on the year.

#1 Stanford @ Oregon State
Reser Stadium
Corvallis, OR
November 9, 2013

Snow Angels
In a driving snowstorm, Stanford takes the air out of the ball and the Beavers

CORVALLIS, OR - It's almost a lost art in football nowadays, but there used to be a time when coaches of visiting teams in unfavorable weather conditions would deploy the most conservative gameplan imaginable, in an effort to minimize the possibility of mistakes caused by the home crowd or the weather.

Stanford coach Brian Kudron broke out that gameplan Saturday night in Corvallis, reducing the powerful Stanford offense to a throwback 1970s "three yards and a cloud of dust" outfit, dominating the time of possession in blizzard-like conditions at Reser Stadium.

The Cardinal took almost no chances, settling for running play after running play, and letting the defense carry the water; a task they gladly accepted, demolishing Oregon State in the trenches and picking off six passes in a 30-3 bludgeoning.

"I don't think many coaches could pull off what we pulled off tonight, really," Kudron said. "In today's game, it's all about scoring and scoring and scoring and lighting up the scoreboard and running up and down the field. I think a lot of coaches would have trouble executing a gameplan like ours for a game like this, where your goal is to just play keepaway, essentially, and lean on your defense to pull you through. We challenged our defense to lead the charge tonight, and they answered the bell."

Perhaps the biggest test of Stanford's season now lies ahead a week from now, as they will travel across the San Francisco Bay to face their archrivals from Berkeley. The Bears have experienced a resurgence this season after several mediocre years, and they will be thirsting for vengeance after three straight losses to Stanford, all in humiliating fashion. The winner will represent the North Division in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Game Notes
In what may be the biggest "Big Game" ever, Stanford and Cal will battle in Berkeley with stakes the rivalry has never seen. The winner will win the Pac-12 North and play in the Pac-12 Championship Game, but even beyond that, the winner will have the inside track to a spot in the BCS National Championship Game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Cal's offense is solid if not spectacular, checking in at 30th nationally in total yardage. Blossoming star junior QB Kyle Boehm has missed the last two games and most of the last three with a shoulder injury, but he is expected back for the Big Game. Cal's offense is run-based, so the passing numbers are not eye-popping, but they aren't supposed to be. Boehm has thrown for 1490 yards on the season, with a 3-1 TD to INT ratio, 18 touchdowns to only six picks. The great news for Cal is that if Boehm can't go for some reason, or is reinjured, fifth year senior Allan Bridgford can step in and Cal's offense won't miss a beat. Bridgford has 601 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions while Boehm was injured.

Stanford's main task defensively will be to stop Cal's running game. Redshirt sophomore Brendan Bigelow is built in the Jahvid Best mold; he is lightning in a bottle and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. Bigelow had major knee injuries in both his junior and senior years of high school, which caused his stock as a recruit to dip. But he is at full strength now, and has 1044 yards and eight touchdowns on the year. His understudy, fellow redshirt sophomore Daniel Lasco, is more of a physical runner and has 557 yards and five touchdowns of his own.

Despite the emphasis on the run, Cal is not lacking talent at wide receiver and tight end. Senior wideout Keenan Allen is one of the most talented players in the Pac-12, but has been devastated by injuries the past two years. He missed almost all of 2012, and has been plagued all year this year, and as a result has only 29 catches for 301 yards and one touchdown. Whereas QB Kyle Boehm is likely to play with his shoulder injury, Allen is closer to 50/50. If he can't go, Cal will lean on their other weapons, primarily junior speedster Kaelin Clay (579 yards, 8 TDs), junior Maurice Harris (384 yards, 4 TDs), who is more on the physical side at 6'3, 207, and their two outstanding pass receiving tight ends, senior Spencer Hagan (336 yards, 7 TDs), and sophomore Richard Rodgers (244 yards, 3 TDs).

With all that said though, this game will be decided by the titanic matchup of Stanford's offense, ranked 3rd nationally in yards per game and first in scoring, and Cal's defense, which is #1 in yards per game (243.5), #1 in passing yards allowed per game (125.3), 10th in rushing defense (118.2), and 2nd nationally in scoring defense, giving up only 13.6 points per game.

The Bears are stacked at essentially every level of defense, but there IS one major caveat. Junior nose tackle Viliami Moala, Cal's 359-pound weapon of mass destruction in the middle of their 3-4 defense, broke his foot last month at Washington and will not play against Stanford. Moala had 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks on the year, but played the role of run-stuffing nose guard to perfection. In his place will be 296-pound sophomore Mustafa Jalil, who has four sacks of his own. Flanking Jalil in the three-man front will be 319-pound senior Deandre Coleman (45 tackles, 3.5 sacks) and 272-pound sophomore Todd Barr (47 tackles, 5.5 sacks).

David Wilkerson leads the Cal linebacking corps, setting the pace with a team-leading 60 tackles. He is also tied with Coleman for the team lead in tackles for loss with 21, and also has 4.5 sacks of his own. Seniors Dan Camporeale and Nick Forbes have extensive experience, and JP Hurrell, Chris McCain, and Cecil Whiteside provide the Bears with depth that gives them perhaps the best group of linebackers in America.

In the secondary, Cal has a legitimate claim to the best pair of corners in the conference and perhaps the country in senior Steve Williams and junior Stefan McClure. Williams essentially takes away half the field, and is thrown out so infrequently he has no interceptions on the season. McClure has two picks and is not afraid to stick his nose into the fray, as his 30 tackles is tops in the Cal defensive backfield. Junior Isaac Lapite gives the Bears a quality nickelback, as well.

At safety, Cal has a pair of junior head hunters, as both Michael Coley and Avery Sebastian are capable of destroying any receiver going over the middle. Coley leads his team with three interceptions, while Sebastian is tied with McClure for second with two.

Overall, Stanford cannot expect to brutalize their rivals like they have the past three years: 48-14 in Berkeley in 2010, and 45-3 and 37-7 in Palo Alto in 2011 and 2012. This is the closest Cal has gotten to the elusive BCS bowl they've been striving for for so long, and you can bet playing on their home field against hated Stanford will have their intensity levels at 110%.

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

#1 Stanford @ #3 California
California Memorial Stadium
Berkeley, CA
November 16, 2013

Dream Denied
Cal strikes late to strike down Stanford's title hopes

BERKELEY, CA - In the biggest Big Game, Cal's defense came up the biggest.

The Bears choked off Stanford's powerful offense, and found just enough offense of their own to overcome their Bay Area rivals, as Kyle Boehm connected with Spencer Hagan with only 34 seconds left, delivering a dramatic 27-20 victory for Cal-Berkeley.

Stanford's defense was solid most of the day as well, as for three quarters the only touchdown of the game was a monstrous 105-yard kickoff return by Cal superstar Brendan Bigelow. Stanford was able to withstand that thanks to a heroic effort by kicker Jordan Williamson, who hit three field goals from 50+ yards away, setting the stage for a dramatic fourth quarter with Cal clinging to a 13-12 lead.

Both teams found their offense in the final frame, even after Stanford knocked Bigelow out of the game late in the third quarter with a serious injury. Boehm connecting on a 43 yard pass to wideout Keenan Allen, setting up a one yard scoring pass to Allen two plays later. Stanford responded on their next drive, with Ty Montgomery beating Cal defensive backs Steve Williams and Michael Coley on a jump ball near the goal line. Zach Ertz converted the ensuing two point conversion, tying the game at 20.

Cal's determination to vanquish their rivals triumphed on the ensuing drive, however, thanks to backup running back Daniel Lasco and clutch catches by Kaelin Clay and Maurice Harris, culminating in Hagan slipping behind Stanford's defense on a playaction pass and catching Boehm's throw standing all alone in the endzone, setting off euphoria in Memorial Stadium.

The Cardinal managed to get to midfield on their final, desperate drive, but Brett Nottingham was sacked to end the game.

"Our kid are heartbroken, that's for sure," a solemn Brian Kudron said after the game. "I thought we prepared well all week, and we were ready to play today. They were just better. So you have to give them credit. They're a well-coached team and they knew what level of intensity was required for a game of this magnitude. This obviously hurts, but we've got another big game next week against Notre Dame, and we still have a chance to get to a BCS bowl, so we're going to have to put this behind us."

Injury Report
Game Notes
Notre Dame's season has collapsed into a 3-8 abomination, but it would be a tremendous mistake for Stanford to sleepwalk through this game, as they still have a BCS bowl bid up for grabs, and the Irish DO have talent that can make plays on both sides of the ball. Not to mention the fact that Notre Dame is the final team on the "revenge tour" for Stanford in 2013.

Senior Tommy Rees has been average at best on the season, completing just below 50% of his passes for 1964 yards with 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Junior Andrew Hendrix has 392 yards and three TDs and three INTs in fill-in duty. Cierre Wood, who scorched Stanford last year in South Bend, is gone, but junior George Atkinson III has 1054 yards and seven touchdowns, while averaging 6.6 yards per carry. Tight end Tyler Eifert is Notre Dame's #1 receiving threat, leading the team in catches (48) and yards (677), while tied with wideout TJ Jones for the team lead in touchdown catches with six. Jones, in addition to the six scores, has 37 catches for 558 yards. 6'6 sophomore wideout Anthony Bridges has shown signs of living up to his 5* status with 42 catches for 488 yards and three touchdowns, while junior DaVaris Daniels has also had a nice year with 35 receptions, 471 yards, and three scores.

Defensively, the Irish have been a hot mess all season, and their defensive rankings reflect that. Senior inside linebacker Carlo Calabrese is the team's leading tackler with 70 stops. Aaron Lynch is Notre Dame's most disruptive lineman, leading his team in both tackles for loss (12) and sacks (3.5). 346-pound nose tackle Louis Nix III is right behind him with 10 TFL and three sacks. Junior Stephon Tuitt has been a disappointment so far in his career, as he only has five career sacks, 2.5 of which have come this season. That's not as disappointing as Ishaq Williams, however. The 6'5, 260-pound junior from New York arrived at Notre Dame as a five star recruit renowned for his pass rushing skills - but he has not a single sack on the season.

Corner Bennett Jackson and safeties Eilar Hardy and Mike Golden are tied for the lead in interceptions, with three each. Hardy and Golden are sophomores, leaving Notre Dame vulnerable at the safety positions. Jackson and senior corner Lo Wood are serviceable, but the Irish are unimpressive in basically every aspect, defensively. That, combined with Stanford being steamed after last week's loss at Cal, last year's loss in South Bend, and this game being in Palo Alto, could add up to a very long day for the Fighting Irish.

No Fight in the Irish
Stanford cruises to 5th straight win over Notre Dame

PALO ALTO, CA - Stanford had an abundance of frustration and anger built up, and was just dying to vent it somewhere.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish turned out to be the unfortunate recipient of that wrath, as Brett Nottingham and Anthony Wilkerson laid waste to the Irish defense, concluding the regular season with a systematic 66-10 demolition.

Nottingham, playing perhaps his final game at Stanford Stadium, completed a staggering 14 of 16 passes for 368 yards and five touchdowns, while Wilkerson, definitely playing his final home game, rumbled for 189 yards, breaking Toby Gerhart's record for rushing yards in a single season in Stanford history (1871).

"These are two very, very special football players," Stanford coach Brian Kudron said. "I think it's a great testament to their character that they stuck around once Coach Harbaugh left and I came in. It would've been real easy for them to just bolt, but they stayed. For Anthony, three straight 1000-yard seasons, good chance at 2000 yards this year. And for Brett, following in Andrew's footsteps and carving out his own legacy, back to back 3000 yard seasons. And for all these guys, and this senior class as a whole, to never lose a game here at home during their careers...that's special."

Barring something unusual happening as a result of the Cal/USC Pac-12 title game, Stanford appears poised for their 3rd BCS game in four years.
