College Football Week 11: #13 Oregon State At #16 Stanford

#13 Oregon State
#16 Stanford
Arizona State v Oregon State
Stanford v Colorado
Winner Mike Riley’s team bounced back after its first loss of the season, beating Arizona State last week.
David Shaw and Stanford will be tested for the first time since an overtime loss to Notre Dame on Oct. 13. Since, the Cardinal has played three teams with a combined six wins.
Winner The Beavers had a nice run-pass balance last week, putting up 36 points and 424 yards.
If your offense doesn’t look good against Colorado, you’ve got problems. Stanford’s offense looked good, at least once redshirt freshman Kevin Hogan replaced Josh Nunes at quarterback. Hogan will make his first start on Saturday.
OSU fields an above-average defense, one that held Arizona State to 303 yards and just 7 second-half points.
Winner The note about Colorado applies to defense, too—and Stanford held the Buffs to 76 yards. Stanford is ninth in the country in yards per play allowed.
Special Teams
The Beavers had a punt blocked last week that led to a safety. In general, the Beavers’ kicking game has been good, but their return game has been weak.
Winner Stanford is in the top 25 according to the FEI special teams rankings.

The Winner Is

Arizona State v Oregon State
Winner #13 Oregon State
2 out of 4

The winner will control its own destiny in the Pac-12, as both teams still get a crack at Oregon. Oregon State is the better all-around team and has the edge against an inexperienced quarterback.
