No. 9 Stanford rolls past UC Davisadmin
STANFORD – The offense took awhile to wake up, but Stanford’s defense continued to dominate in a 30-10 win over UC Davis Saturday at Stanford Stadium.
Facing an FCS opponent at 11 a.m., the earliest home start in program history, the ninth-ranked Cardinal extended their streak to 10 quarters without allowing a touchdown. The Aggies’ only points came on a 26-yard field goal when UC Davis (2-1) started at the Cardinal 12, and a 26-yard touchdown pass on the final play of the game.
Stanford’s offense struggled early without the injured Bryce Love. In the first quarter, the Cardinal rushed for just 10 yards on nine carries and K.J. Costello threw two interceptions on overthrown passes.
JJ Arcega-Whiteside had 9- and 8-yard touchdown catches in the second quarter to put Stanford ahead 17-3 at halftime, and a 53-yard catch by Osiris St. Brown led to a 5-yard run by Cameron Scarlett that made it 27-3 in the third quarter.
Thomas Booker and Alameen Murphy had fourth-quarter interceptions, while Casey Toohill blocked a 44-yard field goal.
