    Welcome to ESPN's coverage of College Gameday, Live from Stillwater, Oklahoma; the site of this week’s game of the week between the Stanford Cardinal and the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

    [​IMG]

    I’m Chris Fowler and I’ll be joined by Herbie and the Coach to discuss this week’s News from around the world of college football as well as preview this week’s great slate of action on the gridiron.

    We start here in Stillwater where Gameday is this week. Let’s welcome Erin Andrews with the latest on the Game of the Week between the Cardinal and the Cowboys.

    [​IMG]

    “The Stanford Cardinal and their prolific future first overall pick have lived up to expectations this season, going a perfect 11-0 up until now. Luck isn’t the only one that the Cowboys need to look out for though, as Heisman frontrunner Stepfan Taylor is the true workhorse for the leaders in the PAC-12. The duo has all of Palo Alto murmuring about a potential national title, but the Cardinal must step up to the challenge this week as well in the PAC-12 title game first.

    Oklahoma State relies heavily on the passing attack, but if they want to pull the upset this week, they absolutely must get their ground attack going. Wideout Justin Blackmon is a very talented player for the Cowboys, but the defense has been questionable all season, and it will take a huge performance from them along with Blackmon for the Cowboys to steal a win, even on the home field.”

    Players to Watch

    For Stanford: RB Stepfan Taylor

    For Oklahoma State: WR Justin Blackmon

    Last week of the regular season for most. I think there are 2 or 3 people with games W15, which means it'd be a great time for a 24-hour advance if those people can do it.

    Advancing Thursday around 1 PM EST.

    the cpu ran corner fades on me about 4 times and scored on 2 of them and i think lowering the tackling benefited a lot for the cpu as its damn near impossible to make a tackle on the initial hit to begin with and lowering the tackling rating just makes it even worse

    lowering pass rush for user and cpu has absolutely no effect on the cpu's pass rush but kills user pass rush. i admit sacks seemed high for users but when the computer had just as many sacks it seemed fair. lowering the user pass rush almost kills it, lowering for cpu does nothing

    i guess accuracy effected my game as i was 10-24 with 3 ints

    not complaining about the loss just trying to add my 2 cents

    You guys can have an extension if West Virginia and Oklahoma State can agree to play their week 15 games in 24 hours after next advance. It'd be nice if you guys play tonight though, I don't want to have to sim another user game.

    I agree with the tackling part. I don't think it should've been lowered, it was already next to impossible to tackle the CPU on first hit. The CPU pass rush needs a buff more than human pass rush does.

    Just my 2 cents
