For the first time in his collegiate career, Kevin Hogan failed to deliver with the game on the line.
On the heels of No. 13 Stanford’s stunning 17-14 upset of No. 2 Oregon in overtime last night, senior inside linebacker Shayne Skov was named the Walter Camp national defensive player of the week.
Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson said he “blacked out” as his 37-yard field goal sailed a few feet inside the left upright. Stanford fans will remember every second of it, as the kick gave the No. 13 Cardinal a stunning 17-14 overtime upset over No. 2 Oregon Saturday night from Autzen Stadium.

With just about everything on the line, three-touchdown underdog No. 13 Stanford (8-2, 6-1 Pac-12) hopes to knock off No. 2 Oregon (10-0, 7-0) tomorrow night. As if the game didn’t have enough of a David-Goliath feel to it, the Cardinal will have to pull off the upset in Autzen, where the crowd noise can grow so loud that the pellets on the turf start to shake.
