Stanford rallies after giving up 23 straight points to knock off Oregon State 27-23 and improve to 6-1 in the Pac-12.
This game lived up to its billing between two of the toughest defenses in the Pac-12. Stanford controlled the first quarter, but a well-coached Oregon State squad rallied for 23 straight points to take command.
Kevin Hogan went 22-of-29 in his first career start for 254 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. His counterpart, Cody Vaz for OSU went 23-of-38 for 226 yards and a touchdown.
The win gives Stanford a chance to represent the Pac-12 North, if they can get by Oregon next weekend. Oregon State is no longer in contention for the North Division crown, but should remain in the top 25.
It was a hard-hitting, physical and well-coached game. Stanford just proved to be too much down the stretch for OSU.
