Stanford men’s wrestling (9-4, 2-1 Pac-12) concluded its season on March 21 at the NCAA Championships in Pittsburgh. Although no Cardinal managed to place at the tournament, and only redshirt sophomore Nathan Traxler came in as a top-10 seed, Stanford has had a season like no other — smashing records, claiming titles and transforming into a team that will never be forgotten in the annals of Pac-12 wrestling history.
No. 25 Stanford men’s wrestling (9-3, 2-1 Pac-12) gears up for its final dual meet of the season against No. 7 Nebraska (11-5, 5-4 Big-10) in Lincoln.
In a pair of dual meets this past Friday and Sunday, No. 20 Stanford men’s wrestling (9-3, 2-1 Pac-12) claimed victory at No. 18 Oregon State (4-8, 0-2 Pac-12) for the first time in Cardinal history and decimated Cal Poly (0-8, 0-3 Pac-12) on Senior Night.
This Friday, No. 25 Stanford men’s wrestling (7-3, 1-1 Pac-12) will face off against No. 18 Oregon State (4-7, 0-1 Pac-12) at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis, Oregon.
Facing the conference’s second best team on the road, Stanford men’s basketball (12-10, 5-5 Pac-12) put forth an impressive 83-60 wire-to-wire victory over Oregon State (14-8, 6-4 Pac-12) for the Cardinal’s fourth straight win in the series.
After absolutely demolishing their cross-bay rival Cal last Saturday (75-50), No. 11 Stanford women’s basketball (18-3, 8-2 PAC-12) looks to use their home court advantage tonight against No. 7 Oregon State (19-3, 9-1 Pac-12) at Maples Pavilion at 6 p.m. Stanford seeks to extend their 21-0 home-game winning streak, the longest active streak in the nation.
The first half of Stanford football’s 27-23 road loss to Washington last week was nightmarish. The Huskies scored on their first three possessions to take a 21-0 lead, junior quarterback KJ Costello threw two costly interceptions, and senior wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside- Stanford’s best player- went down with an ankle injury that knocked him out for the rest of the game and has him sidelined this week against Oregon State. Indeed, that miserable half was a microcosm of the horrendous past month and half for the Cardinal. Since then-seventh ranked Stanford beat Oregon in an overtime thriller on September 22nd, the Cardinal have lost four of five games and have fallen from the College Football Playoff discussion into a discussion about whether or not they will make a bowl game.
Tonight No. 6 Stanford men’s soccer (11-2-4, 7-1-1 Pac-12) will take on the University of California (6-9-2, 2-7-0) in the final game of the regular season. A win or draw will secure the Cardinal the Pac-12 Conference Championship outright.
