Stanford football looks to shut down Wazzu air raid

Tomorrow, No. 5 Stanford (3-0, 1-0 Pac-12) hopes to avoid a similar letdown when it takes on Washington State (3-1, 1-0) in Seattle. Despite a shaky fourth quarter against Arizona State last weekend, the Cardinal is coming off a statement win and looks to keep its momentum heading into the middle segment of the season — a task that it failed to accomplish last year. And once again, the test will come within the hostile confines of CenturyLink Field.

Stanford football struggles to put away Arizona State, but wins 42-28

Though Saturday proved to be a tale of two halves, Stanford made a big statement under the national spotlight after two convincing, but unremarkable, wins to start the season. In front of a sold-out crowd of 50,424 fans at Stanford Stadium, the No. 5 Cardinal (3-0, 1-0 Pac-12) defeated No. 23 Arizona State (2-1, 0-1) 42-28 in its first conference matchup of the season — and the weekend’s only matchup between ranked college football teams.

Stanford football ready for Army’s triple-option offense

The first time that Stanford football traveled east of the Mississippi, it took down Army 26-0 at Yankee Stadium in front of 86,000 fans. That was back in 1928, when the legendary Pop Warner was at the helm of the team, when Stanford played in the same conference as Idaho and Montana and when the program was two years removed from its first — and only — national championship. Though it’s making the trip under different circumstances this weekend, the Cardinal is hoping for a similar result 85 years later.

Stanford football opens 2013 campaign against San Jose State

With an 8 p.m. kickoff time, Stanford is the last college football team in the nation to launch its 2013 campaign.
