College Football Week 12 – Stanford vs Oregon Betting Stats
2012-11-24

“That’s what’s so good about this team,” said Oregon wide receiver Josh Huff. “We don’t pay attention to the rankings and what’s around us. We just play Oregon football”.

“We’re about the end results,” coach Chip Kelly said. “I don’t care if we run it, I don’t care if we throw it. If you’re gonna let us throw it for 377 yards and six touchdowns, we’ll take that every week.”

“I think it’ll be a huge challenge offensively getting matched up against what will be the best defense we’ve faced so far,” Kelly said.

Stanford might not the be the offensive powerhouse Oregon is, but their defense can keep them in the game as they allowed 17.2 points per game, 12th best in the nation.

“They have great athletes, they have a great scheme in all three phases, they know how to adjust those schemes based on what you’re doing, which to me is the biggest key,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. “You don’t see them stopped for long. If you’re doing something well that can hold them down, they’re going to make a tweak and make you pay for it”.

Stanford is 20.5 point underdogs on Saturday; keep in mind over the past two seasons, the Ducks have run 690 yards over the Cardinal.

Detroit seemed on their way to victory leading 20-13 late in the fourth quarter but New York scored a defense touchdown to tie the game, and kicked a game winning field goal on their second possession of overtime. The Lions final five chances with the ball ended with four punts and a defensive score. New York was limited to just 41 yards on the ground on 21 carries while the Lions scampered for 148 yards. The teams combined for five turnovers.
