There's nothing like second life. Stanford got its share during an epic three hour stretch Saturday in which they handed Cal the most lopsided defeated in the 116-year history of Big Game (63-13) and simultaneously enjoyed Arizona's unexpected 42-16 drubbing of Oregon. Suddenly, a week after suffering devastation at USC, the Cardinal have repeated as Pac-12 North champions. They'll face Arizona State on December 7. The location of that contest will be determined by the Sun Devils' game against the Wildcats next Saturday.
This day, though, was about Stanford's domination of a bad Cal team. The Cardinal racked up over 600 yards of total offense, while Ty Montgomery tied Darrin Nelson's program record for touchdowns in a single game (5, originally set at Oregon State in 1981). Here's The Bootleg's video content:
