Oregon’s journey to the BCS National Championship Game ran into a brick wall last week, and that brick wall was Stanford.
The Ducks’ undefeated season went up in flames, and while they’re not out of the title picture just yet, they will need help to get back in. They also need to take care of their own business and pick themselves back up after a tough overtime loss, and a very difficult road game is on tap.
Oregon State has put together one of the surprise seasons in 2012, and it’ll get its rival in its own building. The Beavers have won a lot of games with their solid defense and strong passing attack, and they will give Oregon everything they can handle for the second week in a row.
This is a wonderful rivalry game with plenty at stake for both teams this year.
