Stanford Cardinal 48, Colorado Buffaloes 0 - Final

Some games make teams look better than they are. Some games make teams look ten times worse. This was both of those. The Stanford Cardinal looked like a team that should be competing for the National Championship today against Colorado.

Colorado looked like an inept team that was completely overmatched. As a whole, both teams were who we thought they were. Colorado dropped to 1-8 while Stanford improved to 7-2 in this game. 

The bigger storyline is who the Stanford quarterback will be going into the Oregon State game. Kevin Hogan looked dominant today going 18-for-23 (78.2 percent) for 184 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

However, the more telling thing is that Stanford scored on six of the seven drives that Hogan was at the reigns for. The Stanford defense also did it's part shutting out the Buffaloes offense completely allowing just 76 total yards on the day.
