We all know of Andrew Luck and Stepfan Taylor, but it is the Cardinal defense that needs to make improvements this week. They were continually gashed by the Trojans last week and the unit needs to improve if they hope to make a BCS bowl run.
For the Beavers, it is all about finding consistency on both sides of the ball. They will be heavy underdogs on Saturday and they will rely heavily on their home crowd to support their quest of an upset bid.
