Stanford lost to the conference’s worst team, at home, in convincing fashion. Now, Stanford will finish a three-game homestand with Homecoming against Arizona. The two sides have not faced off since 2016, and have never met under Wildcats second-year head coach Kevin Sumlin. With five games remaining, Stanford finds itself needing to find three wins to reach bowl eligibility. The Daily’s King Jemison, Savanna Stewart and Logan Hatch talk stopping quarterbacks, starting quarterbacks and injuries, lots of injuries.
The task was too much for Stanford (3-4, 2-3 Pac-12) to handle with a third-string quarterback under center. Riding an eleven-game losing streak against the Cardinal, UCLA (2-5, 2-2 Pac-12) came into Stanford Stadium and captured its second win of the season in convincing fashion, 34-16.
After back-to-back victories against Oregon State and Washington, Stanford football (3-3, 2-2 Pac-12) looks to extend its streak with a home game against UCLA (1-5, 1-2 Pac-12) under the Thursday night lights. The Cardinal have a chance to claim a winning record for the first time since the second week of the season with a matchup against the team with the conference’s worst record.
“Lacks suddenness and crisp feet in his route work underneath. Hands need work. Was late getting hands ready and had nine drops over two seasons for drop rate of almost 11 percent. Catch radius just average for his size.”
Stanford football (3-3, 2-2 Pac-12) completely changed the narrative of its season in a 23-13 win over Washington (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) on October 5th. Before that monumental home triumph, the Cardinal had a losing record, and their only wins came over two teams with a combined two victories. Stanford looked to be nothing more than a Pac-12 bottom-feeder who might sneak into bowl eligibility, best-case scenario. Instead, the Cardinal proved that they can still compete with the best teams in the conference.
The Daily’s King Jemison, Sally Egan and Shan Reddy join Daniel Martinez-Krams for a podcast to talk offensive surprises and disappointments, the state of the defense, challenges UCLA presents, and a little bit of recruiting.
Stanford’s football team wasn’t the only group to take home a win Saturday, Oct. 5 — Stanford Food Recovery (SFR) held up its own victory by recovering more than 1,000 pounds of unsold food items from the stadium thanks to a handful of volunteers.
Cameron Scarlett was handed the ball 33 times and obliterated his career-high with 151 rushing yards on the way to an upset victory over No. 15 Washington at home. With the third-string quarterback under center behind three freshman offensive linemen, the fifth-year running back ran out the clock with 51 fourth-quarter yards and to preserve the Cardinal lead.
