For most of David Shaw’s tenure with the Cardinal, the Bruins have been Stanford’s punching bag. But Chip Kelly broke that 11-game streak with last year’s win over the Cardinal. Now, the Bruins will look to win their second straight over Shaw’s team.
This looks to be another close game and, frankly, that should scare the crap out of Bruin fans after last weekend’s defeat against Southern Cal which was snatched from the jaws of victory by poor special teams play and bad coaching decisions.
It will be a be another Chamber of Commerce day and night today in Pasadena. It will be sunny and the temperature will be about 68° degrees at kickoff. Sunset will occur at 4:46 pm, right about the end of the first quarter.
It will cool off a little as the game progresses. The temperature should be about 63° around halftime and will drop to around 60° or possibly the upper 50s by the end of the game.
We are also excited to announce that we will try something new today for the Stanford game. We will be continuing our first The Mighty Bruin Zoom Party! We kicked it off during the basketball game against Ohio State and we’re going to keep it going during this evening’s football game. So, if you’re watching the game and want to virtually meet up with some fellow Bruin fans, join our Zoom meeting! Here are the deets:
