Football preview: Running backs, fullbacks

Football preview: Wide receivers, tight ends

As a result, last year’s receiving corps never became productive enough to earn the trust of head coach David Shaw and the offensive playcalling. While junior Trenton Irwin emerged as a viable top candidate and led the offense in yards per game, Stanford’s passing attack ranked dead last in yards per game in the Pac-12 and often stalled when called upon come game time.

The Cardinal’s usual playmakers once again fully displayed their offensive powers as the likes of Kelsey Murray and Elizabeth Cusick led their team to an offensive blowout against conference opponent Bulldogs. Murray started the game remarkably, finding the back of the net 5 times in the opening 15 minutes to propel Stanford on its first half run that essentially ended the game before it started.

Stanford then utilized a pivotal third quarter in addition to some late-game heroics from frontcourt senior Erica McCall and Alanna Smith, including a game-winning bucket and block, in order to upset the Fighting Irish and escape the Lexington region by a final tally of 76-75.
