    Of course, the game froze (again) during the picture/video upload, which absolutely sucks, because this one had to be seen to be believed. Two one-handed interceptions by Stanford defenders. Two out-of-this-world runs by Cardinal halfback Stevie Taylor. And Andrew Luck actually throwing a pick-six.

    I thought this one was over and done with on three occasions:

    1) In the second quarter, down 17-3. But then, Antolin took a buck-sweep from shotgun 67 yards for the score. Suddenly, we had a game.

    2) Down 31-20 after an 80 yard TD pass from Luck to Owusu, I conceded the loss. I decided I wasn't going to sling the ball through the air and make this one beyond ugly. And that's when a defensive play call of mine finally worked. I sent a strong-side blitz from the 3-3-5, and OLB Jake Fisher dropped back in coverage, jumped the slant, and took it to the house. 31-27.

    3) Late in the 4th, Stanford had the ball inside the 5, and looked unstoppable. Two sacks and a Luck miss-throw later, the Cardinal settled for the field goal. Moments later, AZ quarterback Nick Foles connected with Daniel Buckner on a beautiful 70+ yard corner-post to tie up the game.

    Congrats on the big win. It looks like an MSU-Arizona Rose Bowl is a done deal. I'll be looking forward to our first game - and on such a big stage.

    Thank you! I saw this possibility about two weeks ago. Having only two user games this season, I definitely wanted this matchup. Should be a lot of fun if I can manage to keep it close.

    I'm not sure how, but this possibility escaped me. I guess I just figured that CPU-controlled Stanford was unstoppable. Nonetheless, I, too, am happy to have another new H2H matchup. Assuming we get into bowl season sometime tonight, what times work for you this weekend? I should be free after 9:00 PM PT tonight, 8:30 PM PT Saturday night and at various times during the day on Saturday.

    Have they ever been to the Rose Bowl?

    Thanks, man! Stanford has now lost 3 straight. I caught them at the right time ...

    Brog', the late-night works well for me, too. I can play after midnight tonight (ET) or late tomorrow. I'm only working during the day on Sunday, so I'm pretty flexible.
