CFB: (6) Stanford at (25) Oregon St.

Two weeks ago the Stanford Cardinal reinforced the notion that college football isn't so much about if you lose but rather when you lose. A horrible loss to Utah could have derailed any hopes at a championship, but just one week later, six teams in the top 10 lost, vaulting the Cardinal up to No. 6 in the first BCS standings. They'll need some more good luck with teams above them losing, but there is a small light at the end of the tunnel. Will it keep shining after a date with Oregon State?
