College football’s No. 3 team went down in stunning fashion on Saturday night.
Oregon, the No. 3 team in the country, entered Saturday afternoon’s game against Stanford as a sizable favorite. The Ducks were favored by more than a touchdown, expected to stay undefeated and remain in the College Football Playoff race.
Stanford had other plans, though.
The Cardinal upset the Ducks, 31-24, in overtime on Saturday night.

What a terrible experience that Oregon-Stanford game was. I regret every moment I gave to everyone involved.
I’m gonna go eat something disgusting.

Oregon is just a couple of weeks removed from a big win at Ohio State. Fast forward to Saturday night and the Ducks are getting upset by the Cardinal.
There’s still a lot of college football season left, but Oregon will likely need to win out – and maybe get some help – in order to make the College Football Playoff.
