After the first five minutes of the game, Stanford had three offensive turnovers, including two on the opening possession.
The first was a fumble by sophomore quarterback Jake Browning that was recovered by senior linebacker and starting defensive end Marcus Tucker.
The second turnover came in the fourth quarter, when the Stanford offense scored three times.
The three points came on a 15-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jake Olson, who led Stanford to a 24–0 lead at halftime.
Stanfield’s first touchdown of the half came on an 11-yard pass from Olson to running back Tyler Lockett.
The touchdown came in an 11–0 second quarter, as the Stanford defense held the Bruins to only 17 yards rushing.
The third touchdown of Stanford’s season came in overtime.
The game was tied at 12, but Stanford held on to win the game by a touchdown.

The next time Stanford would play was a rematch of the 2016 season opener at home against Oregon State, which Stanford won 34-28.
Stanford defeated the Beavers 34-31 on Nov. 9, 2016.
