Junior running back Austin Jones, sophomore running backs Casey Filkins and EJ Smith and fifth year safety Noah Williams have been ruled out for Saturday’s game against No. 24 UCLA (2-1, 0-0 Pac-12).
The last time the football team took the field in Stanford Stadium was a loss to Colorado on Nov. 14, 2020. But Stanford hasn’t played in front of home fans since Nov. 30, 2019, when they lost to then No. 15 Notre Dame. Now on a two-game win streak, however, the Cardinal (2-1, 1-0 Pac-12) direct their attention to No. 24 UCLA (2-1, 0-0 Pac-12) — a front-runner for the Pac-12 South title despite the fact that the Bruins have yet to play a conference game.
