#2 Stanford @ USC
Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Los Angeles, CA
October 29, 2011




Conquest
Stanford takes USC's best shot, then delivers the knockout blow

LOS ANGELES, CA - On the first play from scrimmage, Matt Barkley heaved a bomb downfield that Robert Woods pulled out of the air and turned into a 63 yard bomb. Three plays later, Barkley fired a touchdown to Brice Butler, the first offensive touchdown given up by Stanford in almost a month.

The Trojans battled the Cardinal to a stalemate over the first quarter and a half, but Stanford's resiliency and brute strength broke through late in the second quarter, as Andrew Luck led two touchdown drives and finished off a third as a result of a turnover. The Cardinal suddenly had a 38-20 halftime lead, and had broken USC's spirits, as they crushed the Trojans in the second half and marched out of the Coliseum with a 58-20 victory.

"This is the kind of game that defeats complacency," Stanford coach Brian Kudron said afterward. "We've been on such a roll lately, but that kind of dominance isn't sustainable, because there are so many talented opponents out there, eventually you're going to run into somebody who doesn't fold after the first punch. That's what happened today, and it was a test of our character, a test of our determination. And we passed it. And we'll be better off because of it."

Big games from Luck and Stepfan Taylor paced the Cardinal's offense, while the defense once again laid seige to the opponent's quarterback, sacking Matt Barkley six times.

One significant piece of bad news, however, is the loss of Chris Owusu, who went down awkwardly after a kick return in the first quarter. He is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a broken tailbone.

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Stanford lands a quartet
Rout of USC puts the Cardinal over the top for four 4* recruits

PALO ALTO, CA - Stanford's recruiting efforts for the 2012 class hit the accelerator in the wake of their 38-point win at USC on Saturday. They entered the weekend with only 4* RB Kevin Purcell and 2* FB Jason Miller on their commitment list, but they exited the weekend with six commitments, as coach Brian Kudron closed the deal on four 4* prospects.

Committing to the Cardinal are inside linebacker Tremayne Simmons of San Clemente (CA), wide receiver Terrance Bradford of Cedar Rapids (IA), offensive tackle James Sanders of Cypress (CA), and cornerback Quinn Fogle of Santa Cruz. Bradford, a 6'0, 188-pound receiver, comes from the same high school that produced former Michigan receiver Adrian Arrington and current Iowa receiver Keenan Davis. Simmons, a hulking 6'0, 248-pound brickhouse of a linebacker, picked Stanford over Michigan and USC, and is the 3rd-ranked inside linebacker in the country. Sanders, the 9th-ranked offensive tackle, chose the Cardinal in a close battle over Wisconsin, and will arrive on campus right around 300 pounds. Fogle, a tall, physical corner at 6'1, 180, favored Oklahoma for much of the process, but vaulted Stanford to the top of his list in recent weeks, and finally committed.

Game Notes
On paper, this is another lopsided mismatch in Stanford's favor, as they dwarf the Beavers in essentially every category, both offensively and defensively. But there is always something about Corvallis that gives the Beavers a surge that often evens the playing field against foes, as so many Pac-12 opponents have seen over the years. Stanford's gameplan figures to revolve around explosive OSU receiver James Rodgers (702 yards, 5 TDs), but the Beavers have two other receivers more than capable of burning the defense if left unchecked: wideout Markus Wheaton (509 yards, 22.1 YPC, 2 TDs) and tight end Joe Halahuni (564 yards, 8 TDs). These factors, including the looming showdown with #1 Oregon back on The Farm next week, and the conditions could be ripe for another stunning upset in the Pacific Northwest.

#2 Stanford @ Oregon State
Reser Stadium
Corvallis, OR
November 5, 2011




Stanford sets the stage
Cardinal avoids the trap in Corvallis, prepares for #1 Oregon back on The Farm

CORVALLIS, OR - As predicted, the Oregon State Beavers played well over their heads, fueled by a frenzied home crowd at Reser Stadium. That energy staked them to a halftime lead against powerful Stanford, and even erased a 17-10 second half deficit to produce a 24-17 fourth quarter lead on the heels of two huge touchdown plays.

But, as usual, Andrew Luck's calming influence wore off on his teammates, and the Cardinal quickly tied the game, and then delivered a clock-draining game-winning drive, capped with Jordan Williamson's 47 yard field goal with six seconds to go, giving Stanford a 27-24 win and a 9-0 record headed into next week's titantic showdown with #1 Oregon.

"We knew today was going to be tough," Cardinal coach Brian Kudron said. "Oregon State may not be the fastest, or flashiest team in the conference, but I'll be damned if there's a tougher team or a more disciplined team or a more well-coached team. Coming up here is always an adventure."

Game Notes
The Game of the Century is at hand, as the eyes of the college football world descends on The Farm for the biggest game in the history of Stanford football, pitting the #1 Ducks against the #2 Cardinal, with the two teams sporting powerful, explosive offenses that could not be more different philosophically.


The Ducks are well known by now, led by Darron Thomas, LaMichael James, Kenjon Barner, and other assorted blazers running a fire drill of an offense that leans on opposing defenses until they break - and then it keeps going. Thomas has been his usual dual-threat self, passing for 1887 yards and 23 touchdowns, while running for 574 and seven more scores. LaMichael James leads the Ducks with 659 yards on the ground, but only has three touchdowns, because Kenjon Barner has 11 of his own to go with 440 yards. Lavasier Tuinei has evolved into more than just a blocking receiver, as he has 602 yards and 10 scores on the year.


On defense, the Ducks again rely on speed, depth, and forcing turnovers. They have four players tied for the team lead with 2.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss apiece. Anthony Gildon leads the team with four interceptions, two of which he's returned for touchdowns.


Last year, the Cardinal pounced on the Ducks for an early 21-3 lead, but wilted under the Ducks' relentless attack and the frenzied Autzen crowd. This time the crowd is on Stanford's side, and as usual, the pace and momentum of the game will be decided in the trenches. If Stanford can win at the point of attack, especially on defense, they'll be able to dictate the game. If the Oregon offensive line wins the battle against Stanford's front seven, however, their speedsters will get into space, and then it's just one missed tackle away from a touchdown. Stanford's goal will be to control the clock and keep Oregon's offense on the sidelines while they wear down the Ducks' defensive front with their bread and butter power running game.

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Love your franchises. I'll be following this one. I wish you would bring back your Georgetown dynasty on College Hoops. That was a great one. Good luck against your old team in the Oregon Ducks.
