Devon Cajuste will return to Stanford for fifth season

By Evan Buhler, 6 months 5 days ago
Senior wide receiver Devon Cajuste announced on Wednesday that he would return to Stanford for a fifth season. The Cardinal’s second-leading receiver made his decision public on Twitter the day after the team’s dominant 45-21 win over Maryland in the Foster Farms Bowl, in which he scored a pair of touchdowns. I have decided that I am both proud and excited to spend one more season as...

By Evan Buhler, 6 months 6 days ago
After three seasons starting at cornerback for the Cardinal, junior Alex Carter has announced his decision to forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility and will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft. “I talked it over with my family, and we decided it’s time,” Carter told the San Francisco Chronicle. “I love these boys. It was great playing with them, and I’ll miss them.” He made the announcement...

Stanford crushes Maryland 45-21 in Foster Farms Bowl

By Evan Buhler, 6 months 6 days ago
The cold never bothered them anyway. Not even the chilly Santa Clara wind could cool down Stanford’s sizzling play on Tuesday as the Cardinal (8-5, 5-4 Pac-12) lived up to their billing as the largest favorites of the postseason in a 45-21 Foster Farms Bowl demolition of outmatched Maryland (7-6, 4-4 Big Ten). In doing so, the Cardinal secured a sixth consecutive 8-win season and a third...

Foster Farms Bowl features clash between Terps and Cardinal

By The Sports Network, 6 months 6 days ago
Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - It's not the Rose Bowl, or even a New Year's Day invite for that matter, but the Stanford Cardinal can at least take solace in having a decided home field advantage for the Foster Farms Bowl on Dec. 30. Stanford's campus is just 11 miles from Levi's Stadium, while the underdog Maryland Terrapins will travel some 2,800 miles from coast-to-coast in the...

Stanford set to take on Maryland in ‘home’ bowl game

By Evan Buhler, 6 months 1 week ago
In the end, Stanford will, in fact, get to play a game at Levi’s Stadium this season. Granted, it’s 25 days later than the Cardinal (7-5, 5-4 Pac-12) wanted, and against Maryland (7-5, 4-4 Big Ten) instead of the Pac-12 South champion, but on the tail end of a disappointing season, Stanford will at least have the chance to make one final statement against a Power 5 opponent and hit the 8-win...

Football predictions: Foster Farms Bowl

By Evan Buhler, 6 months 1 week ago
Foster Farms Bowl: Stanford (7-5, 5-4 Pac-12) vs. Maryland (7-5, 4-4 Big Ten) Do-Hyoung Park: Stanford 41, Maryland 9 I swear I’m trying not to be a homer in the slightest with this prediction. Seriously. I’ve been writing up the preview series over the last few days, and to me, Maryland just seems outmatched and outgunned in every aspect of the game except for kicking. The Terps’ offensive line...

Park: Stanford has little to gain and everything to lose

By Evan Buhler, 6 months 1 week ago
On paper, Stanford should win the Foster Farms Bowl by 20 points. But unfortunately for the Cardinal, games aren’t played on paper, and bowl season usually give us more twists than a bucket of Twizzlers (I hate Red Vines). I mean, who really expected Nebraska to give USC much of a game? Or Duke to Arizona State, for that matter? The Cardinal are expected to win this game — and not just win, but...

Foster Farms Bowl Preview and Prediction: Maryland vs. Stanford

By Braden Gall, 6 months 1 week ago
The Rose Bowl should be jealous as the 13th edition of the Foster Farms Bowl — formerly the Kraft Fight Hunger, Emerald and San Francisco Bowl — will be one of just two postseason games that features a Big Ten-Pac-12 matchup (Holiday Bowl). This will be the first-ever meeting between the Cardinal and the Terrapins. Stanford is making its debut in the bowl, while...
