Sports 101: Five lessons from last week

Actor Will Ferrell ran onto the field with USC before its game against Stanford, but there was nothing funny for the Trojans about the way Cardinal quarterback Kevin Hogan picked apart their defense. He completed 18 of 23 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns in Stanford’s 41-31 win that wasn’t that close.

In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the last seven days:

▪ Will Ferrell might have provided more defense than USC offered against Stanford.

▪ Bills fans should be careful of what they wish for, especially if it’s Tom Brady.

▪ NASCAR should add boxing to its circuits of trucks and cars because interest among some drivers is clearly there.

▪ Six or seven days can make a big difference, especially for the 49ers and Raiders.

▪ It’s impossible for a golfer to clinch a victory in two rounds, but Jason Day came pretty close.
