“I’ve loved Oregon all year, but I have a fear that they sleepwalk a bit here,” Herbstreit said. “Stanford is getting 8 points. I think Stanford stays close, and I think they can actually win this football game. Look out for the Cardinal today.”

Elsewhere on the set, it was unanimously Oregon as the overall pick, with Desmond Howard, Lee Corso, and PGA golfer Harris English all going with the Ducks.
