Well, it WAS a great season for Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal. Not any more.
They were taken to the woodshed late Saturday night, at home, against the Oregon Ducks.
LaMichael James ran for 146 yards and 3 TD's, as the Ducks slapped the Cardinal around in Palo Alto, winning 53-30. The win ends Stanford's quest at an undefeated season and the possibility they would jump into the hunt for the BCS title game.
Luck was solid, throwing for 271 yards and 3 TD's, but was picked off twice and the lack of help on defense kept him from pulling off another miracle.
This leaves two of the major "BCS Cartel" conference teams undefeated...LSU and Oklahoma State. Houston is as well, but because they play in Conference USA, they aren't allowed to play for the BCS title.
Both LSU and Oklahoma State have tough, rivarly games ahead and the Oregon win here, puts them back in the chase for a potential Chmapionship game berth should LSU and Oklahoma State falter.
