Coming off a mildly disappointing 9-4 season in 2018, No. 25 Stanford football prepares to face one of the nation’s toughest schedules.
Though five Stanford football players were selected to join pro rosters in this past weekend’s 2019 NFL Draft, seven more will have the opportunity to try out for teams as undrafted free agents.
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.
The concussion awareness initiative CrashCourse announced on Tuesday its partnership with American Youth Football & Cheer.
The National Football League announced their invitations to the 2019 Combine today, including seven Stanford football players in their list of 338 total prospects. The Combine, held in Indianapolis, Indiana, is a yearly event for NFL scouts to evaluate and interview potential draft prospects. The Stanford players invited cover a variety of offensive and defensive positions, including wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside, running back Bryce Love, offensive lineman Nate Herbig, tight end Kaden Smith, linebacker Bobby Okereke, cornerback Alijah Holder and punter Jake Bailey.
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 final time, Stanford football’s (5-4, 3-3 Pac-12) seniors will suit up in Stanford Stadium to take on Oregon State (2-7, 1-5) Saturday night. Stanford has won the last eight meetings against the Beavers.
After an agonizing loss to Washington State at home, Stanford football (5-4, 3-3 Pac-12) headed to face Washington (7-3, 5-2) knowing that its shot at the Pac-12 title hung in the balance. The team arrived in Seattle this past Saturday coming off of their best offensive performance of the season against Wazzu, and headed to the Husky Stadium locker room at halftime without a point on the scoreboard, down 21-0.
