No. 14 Stanford looks to challenge Ducks

Posted: Updated:
EUGENE, OR (AP) -

For the past two seasons it's been the same thing for Stanford: Great expectations dashed by Oregon.

So certainly the No. 14 Cardinal would like nothing better than to derail the top-ranked Ducks in their bid for another shot at the national title.

Last season, Stanford was ranked No. 3 and looking toward its own national championship bid with quarterback Andrew Luck when then-No. 6 Oregon visited Palo Alto and emerged with a 52-31 victory. Running back LaMichael James, who would join Luck's NFL draft class in the spring, ran for 146 yards and three touchdowns.

The year before, Oregon defeated the Cardinal and Luck 52-31 in an early October hurdle that led to an undefeated regular season and an appearance in the BCS title game against Auburn.
