No. 16 Stanford 27, No. 13 Oregon State 23
Stanford's late-season quarterback switch paid major dividends this weekend. Filling in for Josh Nunes, redshirt freshman Kevin Hogan completed 22-of-29 attempts for 254 yards and three scores to lead the Cardinal to victory over Oregon State. Star tailback Stepfan Taylor (pictured) amassed 161 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and Stanford's defense held the Beavers scoreless in the fourth quarter. Next week brings an even tougher test. Hogan and Co. travel to Eugene for a Pac-12 showdown with Oregon.
