It is hard to call this a big win for Stanford (6-4 / 4-3 PAC 12), though the scoring differential indicates as much, because simply put Oregon State (2-8 / 1-6 PAC 12) is just not very good. In a sport where you are measured against the best, this was not that. However, the team did become Bowl eligible with the 48-17 victory, and it was a solid conference win, on Senior Night, where the offense finally got back in rhythm.
On that level, Cardinal 6’8” sophomore tight end Colby Parkinson (6 receptions / 166 yards / 4 TD’s / 27.7 YPR) was a beast on The Farm versus OSU, and became the first tight end to be named PAC-12 Player of the Week in five years. The young TE showed off both his elite athleticism and size against a vulnerable Beavers secondary, though frankly I am not sure anyone can truly cover him with his natural length and abilities.
