San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL - — Tom FitzGer­ald

When: 6 p.m. Sat­ur­day Where: Stan­ford Sta­dium TV/Ra­dio: P12Net/1050 Story lines: Heav­ily fa­vored Stan­ford needs a win to be­come bowl el­i­gi­ble. It has lost two in a row and four of the past five. Last-place Ore­gon State beat Colorado on the road two weeks ago, then gave USC a tus­sle into the fourth quar­ter last Sat­ur­day. In­juries: Ore­gon State — CB Jay Irvine (shoul­der), DE Jeromy Re­ich­ner (foot), RB Calvin Tyler Jr. (knee) and S David Mor­ris (foot) are out. RB Ar­tavis Pierce (ribs) and CB Dwayne Wil­liams are ques­tion­able. QB Conor Blount (con­cus­sion) is prob­a­ble. Stan­ford — WR JJ Arce­gaWhite­side (an­kle), G Nate Her­big (undis­closed), K Jet Toner (leg), LB Joey Al­fieri (arm), G Foster Sarell (undis.), S Ben Ed­wards (undis.) and QB Davis Mills (undis.) are out. ILB Mustafa Branch (undis.) is doubt­ful. RB Bryce Love (an­kle), G Dev­ery Hamil­ton (undis.), G Drew Dal­man (undis.) and RB Trevor Speights (undis.) are ques­tion­able.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

This could be a high-scor­ing matchup be­tween Ore­gon State’s Jake Lu­ton and Stan­ford’s K.J. Costello. Costello has had three 300-yard games over the Car­di­nal’s past four. Con­nor Wed­ing­ton will start at WR in place of in­jured JJ Arce­gaWhite­side, and it could be Wed­ing­ton’s chance to thrive. The Beavers’ start­ing re­ceivers, Timmy Her­nan­dez, Isa­iah Hod­gins and Trevon Brad­ford, have com­bined for 110 catches for 1,323 yards and 10 touch­downs.
