Stanford with everything to prove against UCLA

Several days may have elapsed since Stanford’s loss to Utah, but the sting of defeat and the resulting effects linger as fresh as ever. The wounds from last Saturday’s 27-21 loss showed themselves in practice this week.

“Certain guys have an edge to them because what we put on film last week is not who we want to be,” said head coach David Shaw. “We have another opportunity. That’s the best thing about being in the middle of the season; even if you go out and don’t play your best, you get six days to get ready for the next one.”

Going into Saturday’s matchup in Salt Lake City, the Stanford Cardinal owns an active winning streak against 11 of the 12 teams in the Pacific-12 conference. From blowouts like the dismantling of Washington State at CenturyLink Field two weeks ago to nail-biters like the overtime thriller against Oregon at Autzen last season, the Cardinal has seen it all in its most recent trip around its conference.
