Stanford 31, Oregon 24 OT Reaction

How did Oregon give that away?

It’s possible to have seen this coming with the way it slept through the first 40 minutes of last week’s win over Arizona – it took too long to get going in this.

But it did what it seemingly had to do down the stretch, the D took over the game in the second half, and Stanford had to go almost the entire length of the field to score a touchdown just to put it into overtime.

Both teams got hit with ten penalties, but Oregon’s big ones came late when it just needed to not screw up to get out with a win.

Anthony Brown was fine. He threw for 186 yards and ran for two scores, but he threw one pick – whatever. The team around him is good enough that all he needs to do is be solid, and he was that.

The running game ripped off yards in chunks late, the run of 17 straight points to take over the game should’ve been enough to get the job done, and then it all fell apart.

Was that a questionable pass interference call on the final play of regulation?

It was soft, but it took several bad plays to get in that position, and even then the Ducks had a shot in overtime and didn’t get the job done.

The Cardinal came though when they had the chance, and Oregon didn’t.
It was the Ducks’ fault for being in that position in the first place.
