It was a hot start for Stanford last Saturday in their final home game against Oregon State, and though the contest unraveled afterward, there were moments and scenes to remember. Yuji Higaki was shooting from the field level once again and offers 27 exclusive photos for your enjoyment. See the game through his eyes, following the offense, defense and scenes on the sideline.

It started so well so quickly for the Cardinal: a stop by the defense followed by a 36-yard touchdown scamper by Anthony Kimble. It was all downhill afterward for both the Stanford offense and defense. The Cardinal could not stop OSU's Yvenson Bernard. Stanford threw deep numerous times but failed to connect against single coverage. T.C. Ostrander took some serious second-half punishment, to boot.

It's another sobering stat sheet after another blowout loss for Stanford. What was new in Saturday's 42-0 loss to USC? The Cardinal gave up just 108 yards rushing at a clip of 3.4 yards per carry, but the Trojans trumped in the air with 247 passing yards on 14 completions. Stanford made progress in their passing game, believe it or not. Read on for how it all unfolded...

Injuries, offensive offense and a renewed display of defensive futility against the run. Saturday's 20-7 loss to Arizona was the worst performance seen from Stanford Football since the UC Davis debacle of '05. If you have the stomach, here is the blow-by-blow account of events and observations.

Stanford went into South Bend on Saturday with no external expectation or hope of competing, yet they for a second straight week gave much more fight than anyone expected. The defense and special teams helped with field position and some stops. The offense ran the ball well and came out of the gates firing. This time it was not a matter of turnovers. The offense literally dropped the ball.

After a welcome uptick in pass protection the first few games, Stanford has seen its sack and turnover numbers rise rapidly the last two weeks. The "blind" side of the offensive line has received particular scrutiny, which is why we are talking this week with Stanford's starters on the left side of the O-line. First up is fifth-year senior left guard Josiah Vinson's Tuesday press conference Q&A.

Stanford's defense stands so tall as to keep UCLA's offense from scoring a single point in the first half and just seven points into the fourth quarter. So how does the Cardinal suffer a 31-0 defeat Saturday night in the Rose Bowl? Four offensive turnovers, a blocked punt, overall poor special teams and an even worse offense.
