Stanford Vs. USC: Rule Of Tree Breaks It Down

Rule of Tree took the time to break down Stanford's upset over USC on Saturday into a string of moments. They really don't miss a thing in breaking down the biggest upset of college football's early season.

It includes the best and worst of the game. Best start? Ty Montgomery's opening kickoff of 64 yards to the USC 33-yard line. Best Heisman (Runner-Up) statement? That would go to the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week, Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor. Taylor amassed 153 yards on 27 carries, including a 59-yard touchdown scamper. His performance in such a big game puts him into early season discussions for end of the season awards.

The blog drops GIFs all over the place to provide visual proof to their listed greatness, even showing the disappointing actions of USC's Curtis McNeal, who stepped on Barry Browning's face early in the second half.

A favorite has to be the improbably run by Stanford quarterback Josh Nunes. A third and 10 from the 50 and he avoids three USC defenders like someone hit L2 on a PS2 (is that still the juke button?) Stanford and USC provided plenty of highlights and lowlights and Rule of Tree got it all.
