The Cardinal played very well against one of the best teams yesterday during their 31-10 victory at UCLA. While most of the country is stunned, Cardinal fans know that this is how Stanford plays when they execute their game plan. Now here is Stanford Victory Coverage Roundup from around the web.

Stanford Wins 7th Straight Against Bruins
By Nick Dempsey, Rule of Tree

"Stanford killed the clock to finish out the game 31-10 final and even David Shaw cracked a smile. Stanford improves to 7-5 on the season leaving Cardinal fans with mixed feelings. A blowout victory over the 8th best team in the country is nice, but leaves many fans wondering what might have been if this Stanford team showed up all season."

"'Forget about what happened in the past, this game is indicative of how we want to play' Cardinal coach David Shaw said after Stanford extended its win streak over the Bruins to seven games."

"If you predicted that Kevin Hogan would completely outplay Brett Hundley, go to the head of the class. The Stanford quarterback completed 16 of 19 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns, without an interception.
Hundley was kept off kilter by a strong Stanford pass rush and a secondary that blanketed his receivers. He was a rocky 17 for 32 for just 146 yards and one touchdown before being relieved by Jerry Neuheisel midway through the fourth quarter

UCLA overmatched, overwhelmed by Stanford
BY RYAN KARTJE, Los Angeles Register

"For the third straight year - and with the stakes as high as ever this time around - the ninth-ranked Bruins were schooled by Stanford, 31-10, as their month-long cruise through the Pac-12 ran headlong into a Cardinal brick wall, ending any hope UCLA (9-3 overall, 6-3 Pac-12) had of reaching new heights in a season that once seemed destined for them."

"'I'd say it's the best game that everyone has played all year'" Cajuste said. ‘There was finally a time when Stanford played all four quarters in all three phases of the game, so it's great to see an improvement not just from Hogan, but everyone else.'"

Instant Analysis: Stanford 31, No. 8 UCLA 10

"Hogan's 37-yard touchdown pass to Devon Cajuste in the second quarter gave Stanford a 21-10 lead. The two-possession advantage was critical for the Cardinal defense, which used the cushion to lock down the Bruins with suffocating sideline-to-sideline play and a ferocious pass rush."

If the last two games were any indication of how The Cardinal will look next season then we should be very excited.
