Scouting report

The Cardinal are in unfamiliar territory. The only other time Stanford has had a losing record in head coach David Shaw’s tenure was after losing the season opener to Northwestern in 2015, a season that still ended with a Rose Bowl victory. Now the Cardinal are coming off back-to-back losses, including a 20-17 upset by San Diego State that knocked them from the AP Poll last weekend.

Stanford has long been known as a powerful team that wins on the line of scrimmage, but Shaw admitted that USC beat the Cardinal at their own game two weeks ago. Stanford started a true freshman at left tackle against San Diego State and needed the big-play ability of running back Bryce Love to carry a struggling offense.

The defensive line is also struggling to control the line of scrimmage since losing Solomon Thomas. The Cardinal has allowed 478 rushing yards in the past two games. Continue reading “First look: UCLA at Stanford” »

About last night: A review of UCLA’s 48-45 loss to Memphis

UCLA fell to 2-1 after losing a 48-45 shootout at Memphis at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. The Bruins had a chance to win or tie on their final drive after a failed fake field goal attempt from Memphis, but they stalled near midfield. Memphis dialed up pressure and Josh Rosen was nearly intercepted on first-and-10. Rosen missed his next three passes, including the fourth-down attempt to Darren Andrews.

The UCLA defense gave up a season-high 560 yards and six passing touchdowns to Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson. Opponents are averaging 515.3 yards per game and 6.2 yards per play against UCLA through three games.
