Last three meetings: Stanford vs. California

In recent years, there has not been much hype surrounding Big Game. The rivalry is one Stanford has dominated as of late, having won five consecutive years. This time, though, behind one of the top quarterbacks in the conference in Jared Goff and a considerably improved secondary, the Bears should offer a much stiffer test…

Last three meetings: Stanford vs. Oregon

The Stanford-Oregon game is always the premiere matchup of Pac-12 conference play. Year after year, both teams find themselves competing for the Pac-12 North title, and this year proves no different. With a win at home on Saturday, the Cardinal can clinch the North and secure a spot in the Pac-12 Championship. Here’s a look…

Last three meetings: Stanford vs. Colorado

Stanford-Colorado is not a matchup rich with history. In fact, outside of the games played in 2011 and 2012, the last time these teams played each other was in 1993. As of late, Stanford has stood atop the Pac-12 rankings, while Colorado has dwelled at the bottom. Many expect Saturday’s contest in Boulder to fit…

No. 10 Stanford (5-1, 4-0 Pac-12) brings a five game win streak, over which the team has averaged 45 points per game, into Saturday night’s contest against the Washington Huskies (3-3, 1-2).

Last three meetings: Stanford vs. UCLA

As of late, Stanford-UCLA has proven to be a marquee matchup in college football, and Thursday night’s game will likely prove no different. Both teams come into the affair at 4-1, with Stanford ranked 15th in the nation and UCLA ranked 18th. Recent history suggests that the Cardinal hold the upper hand in the blossoming…

Last three meetings: Stanford vs. Arizona

After picking up two resounding wins on the road, the No. 18 Stanford Cardinal (3-1, 2-0 Pac-12) finally return to The Farm this weekend. To complement a red-hot offense that has scored 83 points over its last two games, Stanford Stadium should be rocking Saturday night, as it is the first home game of the…

Stanford in the NFL: Montgomery shines, Luck struggles

In a rematch of last season’s NFC championship game, the Green Bay Packers took on the Seattle Seahawks in a game that would feature three Stanford alumni: Ty Montgomery ‘15, Richard Sherman ‘10 and Doug Baldwin ’10, all of whom played critical roles in the closely contested game. While Sherman and Baldwin are used to…

Stanford in the NFL: Week one roundup

Most notably, the Indianapolis Colts featured four Stanford players in their starting lineup — two on each side of the ball. After adding key veterans in Andre Johnson and Frank Gore to the offense, many…

Woo: DeflateGate has been blown out of proportion

When Tom Brady eventually retires, he will undoubtedly be placed on New England’s version of Mount Rushmore. He will go down alongside Larry Bird, Bobby Orr and Ted Williams as one of Boston’s most beloved athletes. Often referred to as “The Golden Boy,” he has stood atop the sports world for his entire 14-year career,…

Castellanos sparkles as Cal spoils no-hitter in ninth

Stanford (17-21) baseball took the season series over rival California (23-14) Tuesday night with a 4-0 win. It was more than just any win, however, as Cardinal sophomores Chris Castellanos and Gabe Cramer came within just two outs of recording a combined no-hitter. Unfortunately, the Cardinal were denied their first no-no since 1998, when Cramer allowed…

Freshmen carry no-hitter into ninth as baseball snaps skid

Stanford baseball (12-18) snapped its four-game losing streak with an emphatic 7-2 win over Pacific (7-24) on its home portion of a home-and-home with the Tigers. Freshmen Andrew Summerville and Keith Weisenberg actually combined to take a no-hitter in the ninth inning, which would have marked the program’s first no-no since 1998, before pinch hitter Justin…

Woo: Stage set for an epic Final Four

Sixty games have been played over the past two weeks and the field has been narrowed down from 64 to four. Like most fans I’m a sucker for a Cinderella story, an underdog to rally behind, a bandwagon to jump on, but this year’s tournament has not provided one: Only one double-digit seeded team, UCLA,…

Baseball splits Texas series despite abounding injuries

This past weekend, Stanford (9-8) faced one of its toughest tests of the early season with a four-game series against No. 12 Texas (10-6). Heading into a 12-day break with conference play looming on the other side, the series provided a good measuring stick for this young Cardinal team. Stanford could not have asked for…

Offensive explosion carries Stanford to win

Stanford (7-6) jumped back over .500 on the season with a dominating win over San Jose State (4-8).

A balanced offensive attack resulted in a 13-8 win, as all nine starters recorded…
