A week after being nearly perfect, Oregon crashed back to earth at Stanford. The Cardinal score on their first five possessions and spoil Oregon’s perfect Pac-10 title run with a 51-42 victory.
The loss by Oregon (7-2, 5-1 Pac-10) just a week after gaining 613 yards in a 47-20 win over USC cost the Ducks any shot at a berth in the BCS national championhip game and took away any margin for error if they want to win the conference outright. Now, Oregon will have to settle for the Rose Bowl, if it wins out the remaining three games.
