Stanford Cardinal Game Notes
Stanford redshirt senior RB Dorian Maddox (undisclosed) unlikely to return for the rest of the season, per HC David Shaw. Maddox (5'10/194) was not set to be a heavy-hitter for Stanford, but it still hurts to lose any depth, especially in a season like this one. In three years of play at Stanford, Maddox has earned 57 carries for 215 yards and a lone touchdown. He also caught five passes. It is unclear for now if Maddox will be able to get a medical redshirt for another season, or if he will even need it
Oregon Ducks Game Notes
Oregon sophomore QB Tyler Shough was listed as first on the team's initial depth chart. Shough (6'5/195) is considered the co-starter alongside Boston College transfer Anthony Brown. When asked about who will receive the nod against Stanford, HC Mario Cristobal said "There's no value to a team giving up every detail of what they're doing. So I respectfully decline to give out information on who's starting at certain positions." Back in the spring, Cristobal said about Shough: "He entered spring as the starter. He leaves as the starter." Reading the tea leaves, it appears the sophomore signal-caller will likely take the first snaps this Saturday.
