Stanford quarterback Josh Nunes retired from football Tuesday because of a freak injury that occurred while lifting weights. Nunes was lifting weights during a workout in February when he felt a pop near his right shoulder. Turns out that pop was his right chest muscle being completely torn away from his bone. Doctors had to use screws to reattach the chest muscle and advised him to retire. "The injury shouldn't have happened and we're not sure why it happened," Nunes' father, Tim, said.

The Pac-12 Conference's year of the redshirt quarterback has a new contestant. Kevin Hogan hasn't earned the reputation of Oregon's Marcus Mariota or UCLA's Brett Hundley - Hogan wasn't even in Stanford's quarterback competition back in August - but his resume already has an eye-catcher. He beat the No. 1-ranked team in the nation. Hogan, who ascended to the starting spot only three weeks ago, guided the Cardinal past Oregon, 17-14, last week, throwing the touchdown pass that sent the game into overtime.

You could call this the Big Ten Conference Championship Game II. Nearly everything Stanford does would fit perfectly into that typically muscle-bound, blue-collar grind of a league. Tough linemen, hard-charging running backs. Really, is there any difference whatsoever between Wisconsin running back Montee Ball and Stanford's Stepfan Taylor? Times staff writer Chris Foster examines the Rose Bowl game's matchups and story lines: Very Barry This will be an encore performance for Wisconsin's Barry Alvarez.

We combed the hills and scoured the wires for this batch of weekend tidbits: • Boston College has knocked undefeated Notre Dame out of the national title race in each of the last two decades: 1993 and 2002. Notre Dame (9-0) plays at Boston College on Saturday night. • USC, which hosts Arizona State at the Coliseum, has not lost three straight games since Pete Carroll's first season in 2001. The Sun Devils have lost their last three games. • Minnesota, playing at Illinois, has allowed 13 points in each of its four Big Ten defeats.

MORNING Wisconsin (6-3) at Indiana (4-5) 9 a.m., ESPN2 One of these schools, sorry to say, is going to win the Leaders Division and be within one Big Ten title-game win of earning a Rose Bowl berth. With Ohio State and Penn State ineligible this year because of NCAA probation, there's a chance Indiana could pull a UCLA (circa 2011) and win the division without a winning record. There's also a scenario in which Indiana could clinch a Rose Bowl bid with a losing record, but any further explanation would require ruining someone's breakfast in Pasadena.

Stanford ripped a page out of the Titanic-era playbook to help Notre Dame advance another precious step on what is suddenly becoming an improbable national title run. Football games a century ago were brutish struggles with heavy emphasis on gouging and grunting. Innovation was left to guys like Thomas Edison. In 1913, however, Notre Dame exploited something called "the forward pass" to upset Army. The pass-catch combo was Gus Dorais to Knute Rockne. The concept evolved steadily through the years - much to Alabama Coach Nick Saban's consternation - until coming to a dead stop Saturday in South Bend.

It wasn't only Andrew Luck. When Josh Nunes was named Stanford's starting quarterback, following in the footsteps of the top pick in the 2012 NFL draft was only one of the potential burdens. "There's inherent pressure being behind Andrew," Nunes acknowledged during a phone interview. "Not only that, but there's the quarterback tradition at Stanford from Jim Plunkett to John Elway and Andrew. " Not that Nunes is anxious about it. "That kind of all went out the window," he said, "as soon as I got that first snap out of the way. " A fourth-year junior from Upland, Nunes has guided the No. 21 Cardinal to victories over San Jose State and Duke.

Matt Barkley did not mention Stanford in his "unfinished business" speech on the day he announced he was returning to USC for his senior season. But Barkley is 0-3 against the Cardinal -- the only Pac-12 school he has not guided the Trojans to victory over -- so he would no doubt like to take care of that on Saturday when the second-ranked Trojans play at Stanford Stadium. Stanford is ranked No. 21 in the Associated Press media poll and No. 16 in the coaches poll. Former Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft, led the Cardinal to a 55-21 rout of the Trojans in 2009, a 37-35 last-second victory in 2010 and last season's 56-48 triple-overtime win. Fourth-year junior Josh Nunes, an Upland High graduate, replaced Luck and has led the Cardinal to victories over San Jose State and Duke.

Hail to the Redtails? If a newly elected District of Columbia councilman has his way, that's what Washington football fans might be singing once the Redskins change their name from a term he and many others consider offensive to Native Americans. David Grosso, an at-large independent, plans on introducing a resolution that would call on the D.C. area's NFL team to change a name that is “racist and derogatory,” he says. The debate isn't a new one, but it has picked up steam again in recent months with a group of Native Americans launching a court battle to force a name change by denying the Redskins federal trademark protection.
