Missed tackles have been the bane of the Stanford defense

If Lance Anderson had any hair, he might have been pulling it out. He’s too even tempered to do that, but he admits it he has been frustrated.
Stanford’s defensive coordinator has watched his unit give up 31 points to Oregon, 38 to Notre Dame, 40 to Utah, 41 to Washington State and 27 to Washington.
By his count, the Cardinal have missed “over 50” tackles in the past two games. In a good game, he said, they miss 10 or fewer.
“It’s something we’ve struggled with all season long, and it’s a place we have to get better,” he said. “It’s hard to play good defense when you don’t tackle well.”
Stanford (5-4, 3-3 Pac-12) is a huge favorite over last-place Oregon State (2-7, 1-5) in Saturday’s home finale.
