Despite a statistical domination of rival No. 19 Washington (9-3-1, 2-1-1 Pac-12) for the majority of a cold, hazy Thursday night at Cagan Stadium, a sluggish start by Stanford’s strikers yielded an early Huskies goal, and No. 8 Stanford (9-2-1, 3-0-1) had to settle for a 1-1 draw against its toughest competition for the Pac-12 crown.
The magic of the dreamlike final season faded on a chilly Saturday night at Sunken Diamond when senior Jack Klein grounded out to second base to seal a 4-2 loss to No. 2 seed Cal State Fullerton that officially ended No. 1 seed Stanford’s 2017 campaign.
Stanford plated nine runs from the sixth inning on and launched three homers to finally make an ineffective BYU pitching staff pay for its mistakes as the No. 1 seed Cardinal staved off elimination and pulled away to a 9-1 victory over No. 3 seed BYU behind a vintage brutally efficient performance by senior lefty Chris Castellanos.

As an added bonus, they start with an insightful conversation about Ryan Burns being named the starting quarterback and what that means for Stanford's quarterback situation this year and into the future.
The success of Stanford’s offensive line will be one of the most pivotal factors in determining whether the Cardinal will knock on the door of the College Football Playoff or limp into another Foster Farms Bowl this season.
