No. 1 Cardinal keep rolling in Tucson

Faced with its second straight top-ten matchup, No. 1 Stanford (8-0, 6-0 Pac-12) used a familiar recipe of dominant defense to showcase the gap between itself and No. 6 Arizona (7-1, 5-1 Pac-12) on Jan. 1. In points, the gap was 81-54, the largest road margin of victory in program history. In everything else, it was Stanford showing off that despite the new year, it is very much the same top-ranked team.

Football finale

Stanford (3-2, 3-2 Pac-12) is bowl eligible, but will decline postseason opportunities because in this universe there is a pandemic that has kept Stanford on the road since Dec. 1. So, when Stanford steps into the Rose Bowl on Saturday, the season will come to an end against UCLA (3-3, 3-3 Pac-12), another team that has come to the same conclusion and will not seek a bowl game.

Davis Mills and passing game don’t skip a beat

Head coach David Shaw ’95, for just the second time in his tenure at his alma mater, deferred the kickoff to the second half. Three straight runs to sophomore Austin Jones put Stanford at the 41. From there, senior quarterback Davis Mills had eyes for junior wide receiver Simi Fehoko, and Fehoko alone.

A walk in the park

It’s not every day that the head coach of a FBS program makes a public service announcement about wild ducks. On Tuesday morning, however, Stanford head coach David Shaw ’95 did just that.

Countdown to Corvallis

Last year, Stanford needed then-junior tight end Colby Parkinson to throw a touchdown and then-senior kicker Jet Toner to kick a field goal as time expired to get a win in Corvallis. Stanford head coach David Shaw ’95 expects this year to be just as close.

Ground game seals Stanford win over Washington

The home team had won the last five games in the series and on Saturday, Stanford made Husky Stadium its home. Scoring on its first five drives in the game and holding the ball for just shy of the last eight minutes, Stanford (2-2, 2-2 Pac-12) withstood a comeback from No. 23 Washington (3-1, 2-1 Pac-12) to win 31-26.
