National spotlight will be on Stanford-Oregon game


For those who don't already have tickets to Saturday's sold out Pac-12 showdown between No. 3 Stanford and No. 6 Oregon in Stanford Stadium, the next best thing -- other than watching it on TV -- is to head to the Oval on the Stanford campus.

ESPN "GameDay" will be headquartered there and provide updates and color on the game, which should decide the Pac-12 Northern Division title.

This will be the fourth time this season that ESPN's Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard and Erin Andrews have been at a Pac-12 game. The show will begin at 6 a.m with more details coming on the website in the coming days.

Previous "Game Days" with the Pac-12 this year have featured, Oregon and LSU, at Oregon with Arizona State and two weeks ago at the Coliseum when Corso put on the Stanford Tree outfit and predicted a Stanford win at USC.

This is the first trip to The Farm for "GameDay" and third time the Cardinal has been involved with ESPN's morning preview show. Last year's game at Oregon was also a national preview show.

Stanford (9-0) is No. 2 in the USA Today/Coaches Poll and No. 3 in the Associated Press poll. Oregon (8-1) is No. 6 in both polls. The game will be televised on ABC-7 at 5 p.m.
