- Oregon at Stanford -
After chatting with some quality Oregon fans through Twitter and Bleacher Report about how awesome it would be to see the Ducks face Iowa for a national championship, I am pained to say this.
Seriously, I have the utmost respect for the Ducks and I wish them well.
However, I wouldn't be saddened to see them lose at Stanford. I'm sure Ducks fans feel the same way about the Hawkeyes.
The Cardinal come off a bye and bet your bottom dollar they're ready to host Oregon in one heck of a game. Stanford is fighting for bowl eligibility for the first time since 2001.
Sure, it could get ugly in the second half, but Stanford will show heart early behind freshman quarterback Andrew Luck.
Luck holds a 148.47 passer rating in his first year. He has also amassed impressive numbers of 1,825 yards and nine touchdowns.
Can the young quarterback lead his team to a monumental upset? Who knows what might happen? It is, after all, college football.
ESPN has already deemed this game worthy of an upset alert.
The Hawkeyes could use the help by getting the Ducks off their backs.
