On Saturday Stanford defeated Oregon St. 38-14 here is a roundup of the press coverage. After a huge win take a moment and revel in the glory. Take just a moment though because it is now officially Duck Hunting Season.
"In a half-empty Stanford Stadium, Oregon State ran into a team with a worse record and was never competitive. Even early on, when the score was 7-7, it was obvious what the outcome was going to be. This wasn't going to be like the last time the Beavers came to town, and the game came down to the final drive."
"The Cardinal (5-3, 3-2 Pacific 12) controlled the game from start to finish, showing more diverse looks that they have all season - just like coach David Shaw had promised after a perplexing 26-10 loss at Arizona State last week took Stanford out of The Associated Press poll for the first time in four years."
"The victory ended reports that the Cardinal offense had been misplaced in the Arizona desert and that Hogan had somehow lost his mojo."
"The Stanford offense has been frustratingly hard to figure out through the first half of the season. First, it disappeared in South Bend before reappearing at home against Washington State to give fans hope. It then promptly vanished into the desert air in a demoralizing loss at Arizona State.
Don't look now, but it's back again."
"Given the competition, it was Stanford's most impressive all-around performance of the season, and it came just one week after its worst game in years, a 16-point loss at Arizona State in which the offense was lifeless yet again."
"The Cardinal used a no-huddle offense extensively, dumped more passes to the running backs and generally looked more energized. In their first game as an unranked team since the first week of the 2010 season, they trounced the Beavers 38-14 at Stanford Stadium."
"Game ball goes to: Stanford wide receiver/returner Ty Montgomery. Once again, No. 7 was the best player on the field. He showed excellent hands on a crossing pattern early and extended another first-half Stanford drive on a pretty catch-and-run."
"The Cardinal (5-3, 3-2 Pac-12) controlled the game from start to finish, showing more diverse looks that they have all season - just like Shaw had promised after a perplexing 26-10 loss at Arizona State last week took Stanford out of The Associated Press poll for the first time in four years."
"The Oregon-Stanford game just got a lot more interesting."
