Inside the Huddle
• Stanford returns to the field for its annual Cardinal and White Spring Game. The controlled scrimmage marks the end of spring practice, and the last time the Cardinal will be in action until it re-assembles for training camp in July.
• Stanford made its 28th all-time bowl appearance when it faced North Carolina in the 2016 Sun Bowl. The 25-23 win over the Tar Heels was the fourth bowl victory for head coach David Shaw, the most in program history.
• The Cardinal notched its sixth 10-win season this decade, trailing only Alabama (7). Clemson, Florida State and Oklahoma also have six 10-win seasons this decade.
• In 2016, Stanford won at least 10 games for the fifth time in six seasons under Shaw. From 1891-2010, the program recorded four 10-win seasons. The Cardinal won at least eight games for a school-record eighth straight year.
• Stanford is coming off a season in which it advanced to a school-record eighth straight bowl game, a streak that leads the Pac-12.
• Stanford received a graduation success rate of 99 percent from the NCAA for the third consecutive year in 2016, a total that leads all FBS institutions and ranks 11 points higher than the next Pac-12 school (UCLA – 88 percent). The Cardinal also joined Clemson, Duke, Northwestern and Wisconsin as the only FBS football teams to earn APR Public Recognition Awards from the NCAA in each of the past four years.
• Last season, Stanford ranked eighth nationally in defensive touchdowns (4), 12th in winning percentage (.769), 17th in time of possession (32:46), 22nd in team sacks (2.85), 18th in scoring defense (20.4) and 25th in team passing efficiency defense (117.8). Christian McCaffrey ranked first in all-purpose yards per game (211.6), fourth in rushing yards (145.7) and 20th in rushing yards per carry (6.34). Conrad Ukropina ranked fifth in field goals per game (1.83). Dallas Lloyd ranked 13th in total interceptions (5) and 18th in interceptions per game (0.4). Jake Bailey ranked 24th in punting (43.5).
• The Cardinal also set single-season team records for field goals made (22) and extra point percentage (1.000). Individual career school records were set for field goal percentage (.824 • Conrad Ukropina) and consecutive extra points made (108 • Conrad Ukropina). Individual single-season school records were set for top rushing tandem (2,386 • Christian McCaffrey and Bryce Love), field goals made (22 • Conrad Ukropina), field goal percentage (.900 • Conrad Ukropina), extra points made (67 • Conrad Ukropina) and extra point percentage (1.000 • Conrad Ukropina). The individual single-game school record was set for single-game rushing yards (284 • Christian McCaffrey • at Cal).
• The Cardinal returns 80 student-athletes from its 2016 roster.
• Six Cardinal teams will be competing Saturday, in what is being called Cardinalpalooza, a free Stanford sports festival, highlighted by the Cardinal and White Spring Football Game at 1 p.m. in Stanford Stadium. Admission is free to every event throughout the day, with the exception of baseball. Athletic events include beach volleyball, softball, women’s tennis, women’s water polo, baseball and the Cardinal and White Spring Game.
• Free parking is available throughout the entire day in Lot 3, Toyon Grove, Sunken Diamond Varsity Lot, and the Track House Lot. Food will be served by local vendors on campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Campus concessions will also be available for events at Sunken Diamond and Cagan Stadium.
• Following the game, current football student-athletes will be available for autographs at Cagan Stadium. Free posters will also be distributed.
