  1. It’s nice to know that teams now need to spend all week planning some way to score points on our defense. Stanford will be playing the best defense it will play all year. Three games without giving up a touchdown!!
    Go ND..

  2. stanford put up 54 pts

    Redshirt junior quarterback Josh Nunes became the second Stanford player in 2012 to be named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, earning the distinction Monday after he brought the No. 17 Cardinal back from a two-touchdown deficit in the fourth quarter of its win against Arizona.
    Stanford (4-1, 2-1 Pac-12) would not have bounced back from its sole loss last week without Nunes. Just nine days after he and the rest of the Cardinal offense floundered against Washington, not scoring a touchdown, it put up 54 against the Wildcats (3-3, 0-3).
