The condensed schedules altered the last year for players and presented unique mental and physical challenges, which senior co-captains 2MD AJ Rossman and driver Quinn Woodhead understand first-hand.
Daily staffer Cybele Zhang spoke to AJ Rossman and Quinn Woodhead prior to the conclusion of their senior season about their time with the Cardinal.
With two sacks, a pass break up and 13 total tackles thus far this season on defense and his first career touchdown last year, Fisk has established himself as perhaps one of the most versatile players on the Cardinal roster. But he's also arguably one of the most interesting players off the field, too.
Due to scheduling changes during COVID-19 this will be the third consecutive game in the Stanford-Oregon State series played in Oregon, and the Beavers have been quite literally unstoppable this season at home, going 4-0 at Reser Stadium thus far.
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.
Tanner McKee was at home in the Coliseum. Quite literally, the sophomore quarterback had the chance to make his first career start just 50 miles from his hometown of Corona. But also metaphorically, McKee found his stride early and looked at home on the field.
Never in the history of the Stanford men’s water polo program has the Cardinal fallen to Santa Clara. The streak continued this week as Stanford defeated the Broncos, 15-9, in the Cardinal’s home opener, extending the men’s team’s win-streak to 21.
No. 14 Southern California enters the 2021 game off of a commanding 30-7 win against San José State in USC’s home opener, while the unranked Cardinal hope to improve upon a lackluster 24-7 loss to Kansas State. That being said, it seems like the Trojans’ game to lose.
No. 4 Stanford has something to prove after losing in last year's NCAA semifinals. And they began this season with vengeance at the Pacific Invite.
Hopes were high as senior quarterback Jack West took the field on Saturday. But after two interceptions, it became clear that West’s first career touchdown would continue to elude him.
The No. 4 Cardinal (0-0, 0-0 MSPF) are set to kick off their season this Saturday with the Pacific Invite at Pacific in Stockton. Stanford will face both San José State at 1:00 p.m. PT and the home team at 4:00 p.m. PT.
Cardinal men’s water polo knows no team better than UCLA. In fact, 40% of Stanford’s games this season were against the Bruins.
Sitting in the Rose Bowl’s press box during the Stanford-UCLA football game on Saturday, I couldn’t help but feel somewhat out of place. One of the first things I noticed as I took my seat pre-game was the fact that I was the only woman in the room.
