08:14 AM ET 10.31 | How does the shootout in Southern California affect Oregon? Stanford and USC played a controversial and thrilling triple overtime college football game on Saturday. The Cardinal won 56-48, and demonstrated a lot of mettle, but also, left no doubt on one very important topic. It's this: Stanford is not better than Oregon. No way. Not even playing at home, as they will on Nov. 12. Not even with Andrew Luck good enough to start an NFL game at quarterback today. Not with a defense that couldn't stop USC in so many ways until the Trojans fumbled the game away. ... Quarterback Bryan Bennett or Darron Thomas? Pick a guy. Doesn't matter right now.

IMO, Oregon has too much team speed for Stanford and will beat them.

Ducks will rule this roost?????If not, that will mean Stanford vs LSU/Bama winner for the NCG. Okie Lite will lose to Okie, so if Stanford lose to the ducks, then it will allow Okie to leapfrog Boise and be in the NCG against the SEC winner. OT will love this.

LOL, no need to worry, as Boise will never play in the "Flawed" BCS CG!!!!! Oregon will beat Stanford and Bama will play Okie Lite in the CG.

OU will beat Okie Lite. OU's Defense will be the deciding factor.

You just hurt Les Myles' feelings - see if he ever gives you the time if you ask.

Okay then I going to stir the pot a bit. If Ou beats Okie Lite, then Bama and Oregon will play in the BCS CG and no LSU will not be allowed to play, as they won't/didn't win their conference.. :-)

I'll stir some more. Why not OU if they only have one loss?
