Stanford was already the most highly ranked one-loss team prior to its 26-20 defeat of Oregon on Nov. 7. Scoring that victory over the third-ranked Ducks catapulted the Cardinal back into the Top 4, ahead of its Pac-12 North rival and in shouting distance of a BCS Championship berth. 

In order to play for the program's first national championship since Clark Shaugnessy's 1940 "Wow Boys," Stanford needs some help.

Stanford needs a little bit of the chaos it helped start against Oregon to ripple through the college football landscape.
