Stanford concussion education initiative partners with Pop Warner

On Oct. 18, the concussion-awareness initiative known as CrashCourse, developed by Stanford researchers and student-athletes, announced that it has partnered with Pop Warner, the country’s largest youth football organization for children five to 16 years old. CrashCourse aims to promote dialogue about head injuries and to encourage early reporting of concussion symptoms among youth football players nationwide.

Undefeated showdown in South Bend

No. 7 ranked Stanford (4-0) and No. 8 ranked Notre Dame (4-0) first played each other in the 1925 Rose Bowl . Since that first meeting (where Knute Rockne’s Fighting Irish took down Pop Warner’s Cardinal), the teams have met 31 times. Thirty-two matchups. Almost a century of history in the rivalry. But for the first time this Saturday, the programs will meet while both ranked in the top-10.
