What you need to know about Stanford
Stanford came up short against the UCLA Bruins last Saturday, falling 35-24. Stanford's loss came about despite a quality game from QB Tanner McKee, who passed for three TDs and 292 yards. McKee's 56-yard touchdown toss to WR Elijah Higgins in the third quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the evening.
McKee now has a sterling 8:0 touchdown-to-interception ratio and has also helped out on the ground with two rushing touchdowns. RB Nathaniel Peat also has two rushing touchdowns while Higgins has two touchdowns through the air. But player who's found the endzone most often is WR Brycen Tremayne who has four touchdowns on just 17 receptions.
What you need to know about Oregon
Meanwhile, Oregon was hampered by 95 penalty yards against the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday, but still took its contest against Arizona by a conclusive 41-19 score. Oregon QB Anthony Brown was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 206 yards in addition to picking up 41 yards on the ground. Near the top of the highlight reel was Brown's 63-yard TD bomb to WR Jaylon Redd in the first quarter.
Brown has also been flawless this season with seven touchdowns and no interceptions. He also has two rushing touchdowns but takes a backseat on the ground to RB CJ Verdell. He ranks third in the Pac-12 with 334 rushing yards, and has also accounted for six total touchdowns (four rushing, two receiving). Oregon is also expecting to have star edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux (ankle) back at full speed for this matchup after he was limited last week.
