The Pac-12 released Stanford football’s full 2014 schedule on Wednesday afternoon, featuring nine conference matchups and six home games. As was the case in 2012, Stanford will have three consecutive home games to open the season before most of the student body arrives on campus for the new school year.
The wait for Stanford football is over. After a 249-day offseason filled with tight position battles, endless media hype and dramatic hairstyle changes, the No. 5 Cardinal will finally take the field tomorrow night against San Jose State to begin one of the most anticipated seasons in school history. With an 8 p.m. kickoff time, Stanford is the last college football team in the nation to launch its 2013 campaign.
When Stanford takes the field against the San Jose State Spartans in the Bill Walsh Legacy Game on Saturday, it will be doing so for the final time in the near future. Although the Bay Area rivals have played each other nearly every year dating back to the late 1940s — including eight of the last ten years — the matchup between the two teams will take a hiatus beginning next year.
