No. 8-ranked Cardinal hold off Oregon State

By Daniel Dullum

No. 8-ranked Stanford traveled to Corvallis, Ore., to face Oregon State, holding off a late Beavers scare to emerge with a 20-12 Pac-12 football victory.

Tyler Gaffney carried the ball 22 times for 145 yards and all three Cardinal touchdowns on runs of 4, 9 and 32 yards. Stanford improved to 7-1 overall, 5-1 in the conference, while OSU slipped to 6-2 overall, 4-1 Pac-12.

Cardinal quarterback Kevin Hogan completed 8 of 18 passes for 88 yards, as Stanford totaled just 276 yards on offense. At the same time, the Cardinal defense held the Beavers to 288 total yards, well below the OSU season average of 515 yards per game.

Beavers quarterback Sean Mannion, who leads the nation in passing yards and touchdown passes, completed 41 of 57 for 271 yards and one TD.

Stanford held a 20-9 lead with less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter. After Trevor Romaine booted a 39-yard field goal with 3:57 to pull the Beavers to within 20-12, OSU drove to the Cardinal 7 with 30 seconds remaining. Four straight incompletions ended the drive, and the Beavers’ six-game winning streak.

The Cardinal defense stopped the Beavers on downs four times inside the Stanford 35 yard line, and sacked Mannion eight times.

Earlier, Romaine gave OSU a 3-0 lead in the second quarter with a career-long 50-yard field goal.

Next week, the Cardinal return home to host No. 2 Oregon.
