Chen: The starting job is Hogan’s if he returns, but should it be?

By Evan Buhler, 8 months 4 weeks ago
There’s one question that should preoccupy all Stanford football fans for the next eight months. It’s not which bowl the Cardinal will end up in (although the players certainly have a strong preference), or whether the offensive line will find its bearings in the offseason or even which five-star recruits Stanford will ink. If you’re focused on next season, there is only one aching question that...

Desert defeat marked triumphant homecoming for C.J. Keller

By Evan Buhler, 8 months 4 weeks ago
Stanford football’s demoralizing 26-10 loss to Arizona State was probably one of the lowest points of the season for all of the players and coaches that made their way out to Tempe. That is, all of them except for C.J. Keller. It’s hard not to be happy when you get to tell your family that you’re going to be making your first career start in front of them, in your home city, against the team you...

Instant Replay: Against UCLA, finally a complete performance

By Evan Buhler, 9 months 12 hours ago
If you asked Stanford fans for predictions ahead of Friday’s game against then-No. 8 UCLA, you would probably get doom and gloom. Jim Mora’s Bruins were arguably the greatest UCLA team in 20 years, while Stanford was enduring a rebuilding year. But because this is Stanford football and you never know what to expect, Stanford ran the star-studded Bruins out of their own stadium in a 31-10...

Beyda: On the road with Stanford football

By Evan Buhler, 9 months 12 hours ago
“WHOOOOO’S GOOOOOT MYYYYY BACK?” I heard booming from underneath my feet last Friday afternoon, as the players in the Stanford tunnel prepared to make their entrance into the Rose Bowl Stadium. I replied with a couple of stomps on the metal bleachers, and at that moment, I had a feeling that it would be a good day. That it was, as Stanford went on to its shocking 31-10 victory against No. 8 UCLA...

Stanford saved its best for last in 2014, crushing the No. 8 UCLA Bruins 31-10 with its best performance of the season. Here’s the breakdown of the beatdown: 84.2: Senior quarterback Kevin Hogan’s completion percentage against UCLA Hogan was simply brilliant on Friday against the Bruins, turning in possibly the best performance of his career at the Rose Bowl.

Senior sit down: Jordan Williamson

By Evan Buhler, 9 months 2 days ago
It wasn’t the game winning goal in overtime at Oregon in 2012, and it wasn’t even the game winner against Utah during the team’s last home game of the season, but Jordan Williamson’s 51-yard field goal — his longest career kick — was quite the way for the psychology major to walk out of Stanford Stadium on his Senior Day. The fifth-year senior kicker will end his career on the Farm as the...

Heroic Hogan dismantles No. 8 UCLA in Pasadena

By Evan Buhler, 9 months 3 days ago
This was supposed to be UCLA’s year. Experts were predicting that the Bruins would win the Pac-12, crash the College Football Playoff and maybe even claim a national title. But even after those dreams seemed to be lost after a forgettable start, against all odds, UCLA pushed through a chaotic conference to the top of the Pac-12 South, with only a struggling Stanford team standing between it and...

Cardinal seek seventh heaven against UCLA

By Evan Buhler, 9 months 4 days ago
At the start of the season, we all thought that this Stanford-UCLA matchup at the end of the season would have significant postseason implications. And indeed, that does happen to be the case — just not so much for the Cardinal as it is for the Bruins. UCLA (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12) currently sits at No. 8 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings and can secure its berth beside Oregon in the Pac-...
