In their weekly Tuesday press conference, Stanford head coach David Shaw and several players fielded a wide array of questions from the media, ranging from this Saturday’s matchup against Washington to the media frenzy surrounding sophomore running back Barry Sanders and even to Shaw’s own playing days on the Farm.
The toughest test remaining on that list is Saturday at undefeated No. 7 Notre Dame. Unlike last week’s opponent, Arizona, for which I went away from my usual matchup format, Notre Dame certainly has the talent to warrant an in-depth column.

The unblemished record is gone after a tough loss at Washington, but now Stanford returns home to the friendly confines of Stanford Stadium. The question last week was how the Cardinal would respond to its first road challenge, and the answer was anything but satisfactorily.
Washington (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) gave No. 8 Stanford (3-1, 1-1) its first road test of the season, and the Cardinal convincingly failed, falling to the Huskies 17-13. The loss snapped Stanford’s four-game winning streak against its Pac-12 North foe.
