Stanford with everything to prove against UCLA

Several days may have elapsed since Stanford’s loss to Utah, but the sting of defeat and the resulting effects linger as fresh as ever. The wounds from last Saturday’s 27-21 loss showed themselves in practice this week.

“Certain guys have an edge to them because what we put on film last week is not who we want to be,” said head coach David Shaw. “We have another opportunity. That’s the best thing about being in the middle of the season; even if you go out and don’t play your best, you get six days to get ready for the next one.”

Stanford Football: When the light comes on, it’s time to shine

When we first heard it, we thought it was just about Kevin Hogan: a unique phrase, for unique circumstances. How often does a redshirt freshman unseat a senior quarterback on a top-15 team, nine games into the season, much less?

From the outside looking in, at least, there was something uncanny about Hogan’s ascension.

It’s overtime at Stanford Stadium.

Down by 14 midway through the fourth quarter, quarterback Josh Nunes calmly led the Cardinal on two touchdown drives — successfully converting two fourth downs in the process — to knot the score at 48 before the end of regulation. But after already inflicting over 600 yards of offense on Stanford’s tired defense, Arizona’s up-tempo offense is back on the field, getting the ball first in overtime.
