Kevin Hogan played the best game of his career, Tyler Gaffney carried the team on his shoulders, much as Toby Gerhart once did, David Shaw and Mike Bloomgren created and executed a flawless offensive gameplan, and the defense delivered a virtuoso performance as Stanford topped Oregon, 26-20.
How thorough was the domination? Check out these numbers, all huge Cardinal advantages:
- Time of possession: 42:34 to 17:26
- Yards rushing: 274 to 62
- Total yards: 377 to 312
- First downs: 26 to 17
- Offensive plays: 79 to 58
- 3rd down efficiency: 14/21 to 3/10
The full GMC recap will be here soon, but for now I'll leave you with this: Stanford is simply better than the Ducks. Suddenly, it appears that Oregon has a Stanford problem. Any thoughts?
