The Stanford football team will take the field at Cagan Stadium this Saturday for the Cardinal and White Spring Game, the final meeting of their 2019 spring practice sessions. This scrimmage, played between the team’s offense and defense, is a yearly tradition for the team, and is open to the public for free.
This past Saturday, the Stanford football team (7-4, 5-3 Pac-12) headed down to Los Angeles to face off against a top in-state rival – the UCLA Bruins (3-9, 3-6) – and took the game with a final score of 49-42. After crushing Oregon State at home earlier in the month, the team was riding a wave of high-octane offensive production led by junior quarterback KJ Costello. Costello has been the driving force of the team since the first game of the season, filling in as the team’s centerpiece for Bryce Love, who has been unable to recapture his former dominance during this season.
For the third straight year, No. 24 Stanford (5-3, 3-2 Pac 12) fell to No. 14 Washington State (7-1, 4-1). For the second straight year, a heartbreaking margin of three points separated the two sides, as the Cougars were able to kick a go-ahead field goal with nineteen seconds remaining to defeat the Cardinal 41-38.
