Danny Langsdorf brought the Oregon State rendition of the trendy Wildcat formation out of the lab Saturday afternoon.
On it's debut play, it produced sophomore tailback Jacquizz Rodgers' longest rush of his OSU career-- a 61-yard scamper that set the Beavers up for their second touchdown of the game. Jacquizz would score four touchdowns on the afternoon and account for 271 yards of total offense-- almost certainly his best game since the Beavers downed USC last season.
Oregon State moves to 4-2 overall with the win and 2-1 in Pac-10 play, as they dealt the Cardinal their first conference loss of the year. The Beaver defense held the highly touted Toby Gerhart to 96 yards on 20 carries. While it was still a decent statistical game for Gerhart, and while he still broke off some decent-length runs, Oregon State did a great job of containing him and preventing Stanford from taking over the game on the ground.
