What to Know

They are on the road again on Saturday and play against the Oregon Ducks at 11 p.m. ET Oct. 1 at Autzen Stadium. Oregon will be strutting in after a win while the Cardinal will be stumbling in from a loss.
Last week, Stanford lost to the Washington Huskies on the road by a decisive 40-22 margin. Stanford was down 30-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The losing side was boosted by WR Michael Wilson, who caught six passes for two TDs and 176 yards. Tanner McKee's 78-yard touchdown toss to Wilson in the fourth quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
Oregon outgained the Washington State Cougars 625 yards to 416, but you wouldn't know that from the score. Oregon skirted past Washington State 44-41. The Ducks' victory was all the more impressive since the Cougars were averaging only 12.67 points allowed on the season.
