Stanford crushes Oregon State Beavers
STANFORD, Calif. – Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes to set a single-season school record and No. 7 Stanford stated its case for a berth in the Bowl Championship Series by dismantling Oregon State 38-0 Saturday night.
Stepfan Taylor ran for 115 yards and a touchdown and Doug Baldwin caught two TD passes for the Cardinal (11-1, 8-1 Pac-10), who set a school record for wins with an emphatic close to the regular season.
Now Stanford needs to wait a week to learn its bowl fate, hoping for an at-large berth in the BCS with No. 1 Oregon having already wrapped up the Pac-10’s automatic berth.
The Beavers (5-6, 4-4) need to beat the Ducks at home next Saturday to make it to a bowl game for a school-record fifth consecutive season.
