Stanford will be very good this year. With Andrew Luck returning, even the loss of the starting wide receivers and coach from last year won't stop Stanford from having a good year. Luck can throw to anyone, and although there are many teams better than Stanford, no one should take them for granted because Stanford can play. They start out the season with seven games that should be easy for them before facing USC. They face Oregon just two weeks later, and face Notre Dame two weeks after that.
Stanford will do well, and beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, 35-10.
