STANFORD -- Know what happiness is in college football?
Happiness is when the opposing quarterback just flat-out drops the ball without anyone touching him -- and gives Stanford a gift-wrapped turnover to convert into a game-winning touchdown in a 27-23 victory over Oregon State.
"That's part of the game, definitely part of the game," said Stanford linebacker Alex Debniak, with a smile. "You've just got to capitalize on what happens."
Know what happiness is not in college football?
Happiness is not the realization that next Saturday at Oregon, there will likely be no gift-wrapping. Not against a team that will surely be ranked No. 1 in the nation.
