PALO ALTO, Calif. -- One quick note to report. Stanford outside linebacker Alex Debniak, who was questionable heading into today's game with a hamstring injury, has dressed and is available to play.
Debniak is No. 2 on the depth chart behind Trent Murphy. He took several snaps with the second-team defense during the pregame warm-up and didn't appear to be slowed by the injury.
Stanford fans have to be hoping the Cardinal aren't as rusty as the Stanford band that performed the national anthem. I'll be kind since it's the first game of the year. Let's just say they were far from mid-season form.
