Needing a win to become bowl eligible, Stanford couldn't get it done in Berkeley. The Bears outscored the Cardinal 20-0 in the third quarter to pull away for a 37-16 win. Stanford had its opportunities in the first half, but the Cardinal came up short on a couple of trips inside the red zone. One long drive ended in a missed field goal and another ended in a fumble. Jahvid Best led the Bears with 201 yards on 19 carries.
