Smith’s second hat trick of the postseason propelled No. 1 overall seed Stanford (23-1, 11-0 Pac-12) past seventh-seeded UCLA (18-5-1, 8-3 Pac-12) 4-1 and into the College Cup finals. The North Carolina Tar Heels (24-1-1, 9-0-1 ACC), winners of 21 national championships, await on Sunday.
No. 1 overall seed Stanford (22-1, 11-0 Pac-12) will seek to claim a second win over seventh-seeded UCLA (18-4-1, 8-3 Pac-12) tonight. In the first matchup, both Macario and Fleming were held off the scoresheet, but Stanford’s freshman midfielder Maya Doms headed home the game-winner.
No. 7 Stanford (14-2-4, 6-2-2 Pac-12) sent 10th-seeded Virginia Tech (10-6-3, 2-4-2 ACC) home with a 2-1 victory in the third round of NCAA tournament action. The win sets up a date with Clemson for a rematch of the 2015 national title game.
Stanford (4-8, 3-6 Pac-12) was trounced 45-24 by No. 16 Notre Dame (10-2) Saturday in Stanford Stadium.
Entering the game, both sides had allowed just 10 goals, but the Cardinal were the ones to punch a ticket to the College Cup on Friday.
It took 110 minutes and nine penalty kicks, but Stanford (13-2-4, 6-3-2 Pac-12) advanced past Seattle (15-3-5, 10-0-1) 2-1 in a penalty kick shootout to secure a spot in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
In the end, No. 1 Stanford (21-1, 11-0 Pac-12) was able to toy with Penn State (17-7-1, 8-3 Big Ten) in the Sweet 16 to see out the 2-0 victory with the ball always at their own feet. The home side dictated the run of play with a 35-1 advantage in shots that only begins to do justice to their dominance.
Stanford (4-7, 3-6 Pac-12) was ensured its first losing season since 2008 with Saturday’s loss to Cal (6-5, 3-5 Pac-12). The snapped nine-year win streak was the longest in the 122 year history of the series.
No. 1 Stanford (20-1, 11-0 Pac-12) has not lost in Cagan Stadium in 40 games, and once again delivered with a 4-0 triumph over Hofstra (16-4-2, 7-0-2 CAA) Friday night. The Pride came into the game with a 16-game unbeaten streak, but ultimately did not pressure the Cardinal.
For the past nine years, head coach David Shaw and the Stanford Axe have been constants on campus. Each season, Shaw coaches a respectable — and at times brilliant — football team to a winning record and bowl game, while taking care of the Golden Bears in the process.
In 1990, then-redshirt freshman wide receiver David Shaw ’94 stood on the sidelines as Stanford enacted its revenge for the Play, pulling out an improbable Big Game win. Stanford stole the game with a late touchdown, a failed two-point conversion, fans storming the field, a penalty, an onside kick, a roughing-the-passer call and a game-winning field goal.
No. 3 Stanford (4-0, 0-0 Pac-12) persevered 76-70 in overtime in its biggest test so far this season against Gonzaga (2-1, 0-0 WCC). Coming into the game, the Cardinal averaged 93 points per contest, but shot just 59% from the charity stripe and 23% from range on Sunday.
Junior quarterback Davis Mills broke the all-time single-game record for passing yards with 504 yards as Stanford fell on the road to Washington State 49-22 on Saturday.
Macario’s goal was the 14th of No. 1 Stanford’s (19-1, 11-0 Pac-12) 15 in a shutout of the overmatched Prairie View A&M (13-8, 9-1 SWAC) in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Stanford’s goal total is a program and NCAA postseason record by four and five goals, respectively.
For the second straight year, this time with the Pac-12 title on the line, No. 4 Stanford (14-4, 7-3) lost its final regular season match at home to Cal (7-6-3, 3-4-2 Pac-12). For the first time in six seasons, the conference has a new champion, Washington.
For fourth time this season, Stanford will be without senior quarterback K.J. Costello. After suffering an injury during Saturday’s loss at Colorado, Costello is highly doubtful for Saturday's contest against Washington State. In his absence, junior Davis Mills will be tasked with starting under center.
On Tuesday, Stanford women’s soccer (18-1, 11-0 Pac-12) learned its fate for the 2019 NCAA tournament. The Cardinal did not need to wait long.
Colorado's (4-6, 2-5 Pac-12) Evan Price called game with a 37-yard kick as time expired on Saturday night. The Buffs claimed their Homecoming victory 16-13 against Stanford (4-5, 3-4 Pac-12).
No. 2 Stanford (18-1, 11-0 Pac-12) controlled possession, dictated the run of play and poured on four goals to close out the regular season with a 4-0 win over Cal (13-4-2, 5-3-3 Pac-12) and a perfect conference record. With goal contributions from two seniors, Stanford’s class of ’20 can now claim an 8️1-5️-2️ record, including 4️5️-1️-2️ in Cagan Stadium and 4️2-1️-2️ in Pac-12 play.
On Saturday, a lot of eyes will light up when Colorado’s Laviska Shenault Jr. lines up against Stanford’s Paulson Adebo. Shenault, the Buffaloes’ top receiving option, and Adebo, the Cardinal’s All-American junior cornerback, will meet for the first time—since high school.
No. 2 Stanford (16-1, 9-0 Pac-12) dominated Arizona (10-5-1, 4-4-1 Pac-12) in a high-scoring 6-2 affair on Sunday. The Cardinal claimed its fifth consecutive Pac-12 title Thursday in a win over Arizona State, and are now competing for seeding in the NCAA tournament.
The first 13 points scored came from Stanford players, but only nine came from someone wearing a Stanford jersey. Nneka Ogwumike ’12 opened her emphatic return to Maples Pavilion with a layup and a pair of free throws.
Heads turned last Saturday for sophomore wide receiver Brycen Tremayne’s standout submission to the season highlight reel.
