Stanford won a school-record seven games last March en route to an NIT championship. The Cardinal is aiming to repeat the feat this year, but in the NCAA Tournament.
Stanford is suffering through the school’s longest NCAA Tournament drought since Mike Montgomery took over the program prior to the 1986-87 season. But with one of the strongest backcourts in the Pac-12 Conference, the Cardinal is poised to make a triumphant return to March Madness. Read More
Stanford found an offense and a quarterback in its 48-0 road victory against Colorado on Saturday, and the discovery of the latter is the chief reason the No. 16 Cardinal finally demonstrated an ability to move the ball and score points. Read More
Killing time in a Las Vegas hotel room, a 21-year-old quarterback for Fresno State suddenly remembered his pal Kevin Moen was playing.
“I was just waiting for our game,” Jeff Tedford said, who on Nov. 20, 1982, was preparing for UNLV, “and I wanted to see what Kevin was doing.”
From his TV set, Tedford saw that Moen and Cal were down 20-19 to their then-Pac-10 Conference Bay Area rival Stanford, with a mere four seconds left to play. Read More
The sun is shining, the days are warm and No. 22 Stanford and Cal still have half a season left to play entering the 115th edition of the Big Game rivalry.

Whether Stanford’s offense and quarterback Josh Nunes have progressed as far as their showing against Arizona would suggest will be tested when the No. 17 Cardinal (4-1) plays No. 7 Notre Dame (5-0) on the road Saturday.

There will be no quarterback change at Stanford this week. And if David Shaw had his way, there will be no questions about the quarterback’s job status either.
The second-year coach stood behind redshirt junior Josh Nunes on Tuesday, delivering an unprompted and unscripted message at the beginning of his weekly news conference that his struggling quarterback will start for the No. 18 Cardinal (3-1, 1-1 Pac-12) against Arizona (3-2, 0-2) on Saturday.

Jim Harbaugh is in Youngstown, Ohio, this week trying to get the 49ers back to form and Andrew Luck is in Indianapolis prepping for his fourth NFL game with the Colts.
Where is Stanford football?
Ranked among the AP’s Top 10 teams in the country where it presided for most of the past two seasons.
Despite the loss of Harbaugh and Luck, the Cardinal is ranked No. 8 heading into its first road game of the season at Washington tonight. Read More
Andrew Luck and Jim Harbaugh may have moved on to the NFL, but second-year coach David Shaw and No. 9 Stanford haven’t skipped a beat.
For the first time since 1970-72, the Cardinal improved to 3-0 for the third straight season with their fourth consecutive victory over then-No. 3 USC on Sept. 15, holding the Trojans to only 26 yards rushing and intercepting Heisman Trophy hopeful quarterback Matt Barkley twice in a thrilling 21-14 victory.
