Card CAN Drive....55!
"One foot on the brake...and one on
Stanford 55, USC 21. Drink it in. The most
points scored by Stanford in 89 games against the Trojans. In fact, 55
represents the most points ever scored on Troy. Stanford's
largest margin of victory in the 104 years of the too-often lopsided rivalry
with the University of Southern California. USC is an amazing 47-3 in
its last 50 games at the Coliseum. Even more amazing: All three losses have come
at the hands of the Cardinal! Wow!
The nation's #1 rusher coming into the
game at 165 yards per game, Fresno State's Ryan Mathews, was held to 32 yards on
8 carries tonight after sustaining an injury in the second quarter of a 52-14
loss to Nevada!
Behind outstanding work once again from the Tunnel
Workers Union offensive line, Toby Gerhart ran for 179 on 29 carries and
three more TDs, bringing his season total to 19, one off the Stanford
single-season record of 20 (Tommy Vardell in 1991)...and #7 still has two
big games to go!
It would take a massive finish of 200 yards per game
including a bowl, but I guess the boys weren't kidding when they set their
crazy-sounding goal of 2,000 rushing yards for Toby at the beginning of
the 2009 season. He would need 604 yards in the next three games. Never say
By quick count, Toby is still the nation's second-leading
rusher at 139.6 yards per game behind Mathews' 149.1 ypg, but Gerhart could
take over the rushing yardage lead with a strong game against Cal! It remain to
be seen how serous Mathews' injury is. Hopefully not serious. We want to see
Toby catch him fair and square.
