Any team can get put on a bunch of felons and play good physical football. What Stanford did is play with brains, and that makes them an awesome team.

I mean no sour grapes, but do you ever feel like college football games are rigged? Comeon for 3/4 of the game oregon couldn't even move the ball, even looked really sloppy. Then all of a sudden like magic they score 3 touchdowns effortless like they never had problems and looked like there early in the season selves, no mistakes. It just makes you wonder sometimes.

Stanford dominated the game, regardless of what the final score says. They just let their foot off the pedal too soon, but make no mistake about it: they owned Oregon. The Ducks are an exciting offensive team, but sooner or later, teams are going to take on a power team like Stanford. The Ducks just can't handle power football. Ohio State. Stanford (2x). Auburn. LSU. Oregon's speed works most of the time, but not against power football teams. The Cardinal dominated the line of scrimmage.

I mean Oregon couldn't even rush for 50 yard and marcus could hardly compete a pass. Then when we all know that there is not enough time left to win, Oregon scores a rushing touchdown, marcus throws no incompletions and gets a passing TD. Im just saying logic says if your struggling to just run the ball 50yards or compete a pass for 3/4 of the game your in a bad slump. You just don't turn it around like a switch being thrown a total 180 lol.

I disagree about last year i think Oregon beat themselves.

All im saying is it just makes you wonder if its not rigged.

Well they did own Wiconsin, Penn st and K st and texas.

The result doesn't mean Stanford is better, they just played perfect. It also doesn't mean that Stanford and Oregon aren't the best teams in football. We will see, FSU Bama and Baylor will have plenty of chances to lose.

I don't think it's SEC ball, as much as strong and fast teams. After all, Oregon slapped Tennessee around. That being said, if a team can play fast, tough ball, it seems like Oregon's offense does some pants wetting. They did it with Auburn, LSU, and now Stanford twice.

Very disappointed in Oregon. Not sure why I am surprised. They do this song and dance every year. I was really hoping to see what they could do versus Alabama... I guess now I should be glad I don't have to see it!

What does Oregon beating Tennesse have to do with the style of game Stanford plays? Nothing. Stanford controlled the line and pounded the ball and neutralized Oregon's fast attack. That is very SEC like. The fact they broke off Tennessee has more to do with the price of tea in China. Some teams do it better then others.
