While Stanford lost to USC, there are still a few players who deserved helmet stickers:
RB Tyler Gaffney: Gaffney did his part running for 158 yards on 24 carries with a pair of scores. His 35-yard touchdown run would have been the play of the game, if not for the kick that won it for USC.
LB Trent Murphy: He finished with eight tackles, four for loss, forced a fumble and recorded two sacks for a loss of 16 yards.
LB Shayne Skov: Skov had a game-high seven solo tackles and recovered a fumble, which extended the Cardinal’s streak of game with a forced turnover to 35.
