Stanford is back in the Rose Bowl for the second consecutive season, which is just fine with fifth-year senior linebacker Shayne Skov. Skov made eight tackles in last season's Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. This season, he has made 100 tackles, including 10 for losses. Stanford is playing in its fourth consecutive Bowl Championship Series bowl game. The Cardinal's five-year bowl run began in the 2009 Sun Bowl, its first postseason game since 2001. “We're all incredibly happy,” he said of playing in the 100 th Rose Bowl game against Michigan State.

Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook walked to the Rose Bowl sideline Wednesday, unsure of the greeting he would get from Coach Mark Dantonio. Stanford had returned a second-quarter interception for a touchdown. "Coach D was just giving me this look and I was hoping he wasn't going to be super upset and say something to put me down," Cook said. But the ensuing exchange repeated a seasonlong script. "You good?" Dantonio said. "Yeah, I'm fine," Cook answered. The two traded a fist bump, felt better about the situation, and then went their separate ways.

Stanford survived its 2011 season just fine without injured inside linebacker Shayne Skov. The Cardinal almost won the Pac-12 Conference title and then almost won the Fiesta Bowl. The defense, though, was a doughnut in the sense it had a hole in the middle. Stanford missed Skov's commanding 2010 presence: 84 tackles, 7.5 sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss. Just as important, the team longed for his daily vocal vitamin C supplement. TIMELINE: College football 2012-13 bowl schedule "I'm still, to this day, more of a lead-by-example guy," star outside linebacker Chase Thomas said during Rose Bowl preparations this week.

Stanford will field a defense against Michigan State in the Rose Bowl that includes several fourth- and fifth-year seniors, including linebacker Trent Murphy. This is the fifth consecutive bowl game, and fourth in a row in the coveted Bowl Championship Series games, for the Cardinal. Back in 2007, when those veteran players were in high school, Stanford was in the midst of what would become a seven-year bowl drought. But the recruits got a hint of what might be possible when Stanford, a 41-point underdog under former coach Jim Harbaugh, upset second-ranked USC at the Coliseum, 24-23.

In an offense that features two of college football's best wide receivers, USC tight ends Xavier Grimble and Randall Telfer don't get many opportunities to look spectacular. Both, however, have been instrumental in the second-ranked Trojans' 2-0 start. "They may not be the plays that you see all the time on the highlights or anything like that," Grimble said, "but we definitely play our role. " Grimble, 6 feet 5 and 255 pounds, received attention after last week's performance against Syracuse.

UCLA will face the nation's No. 1 defense against the run when the Bruins play at Stanford on Saturday. In three games, the Cardinal has given up an average of 36 yards. "That's just unbelievable," offensive tackle Jeff Baca said. It makes the game plan simple in Baca's eyes. "The first thing we have to do is establish the run," he said. OK, fine. The "how" remains to be seen. Stanford's defensive numbers are a bit skewed, as the sixth-ranked Cardinal has played lightweights San Jose State and Duke — though San Jose State gained 202 yards rushing against UCLA.

Let's dive right in: Is Stanford a program or a period piece? The team's remarkable success in recent years could be attributable to two men: Jim Harbaugh and Andrew Luck. Harbaugh arrived unannounced in 2007 after the Walt Harris/Buddy Teevens coaching fiascoes and stuck it in thePac-10 Conference's ear hole. Stanford took on Harbaugh's square-jawed combativeness, and the Cardinal turned into something it had never before been: feared. Harbaugh's first year yielded an all-time haymaker when, as a 41-point underdog, Stanford shocked USC at the Coliseum - with somebody named Tavita Pritchard at quarterback.

EL PASO - UCLA Coach Jim Mora believes quarterback Brett Hundley will return for his junior season - or so he hopes, anyway. Mora, speaking at the Hyundai Sun Bowl news conference, was asked if he had given any thought to Tuesday's game being the last time he would have Hundley. “No,” responded Mora, who then added: "I don't think it will be. " He paused and left wiggle room, saying, “I am very hopeful it won't be.” Hundley has said he will decide whether to declare for the NFL draft sometime after the Sun Bowl.

With numerous NFL teams firing coaches on Monday, Stanford Coach David Shaw will almost certainly be floated as a possible candidate for a pro job. Shaw said that while it is “unbelievably flattering” and “cool” to have his name come up, he has not been contacted and “I have no desires to pursue another job.” Shaw has guided Stanford to a 34-6 record and three Bowl Championship Series games in three seasons. The Cardinal plays Michigan State on Wednesday in the 100 th Rose Bowl.
