Stanford looks to bounce back from a disappointing start to the season in their home opener against the University of Central Florida. The Cardinal hopes to get the offense back on track against the Knights. Here is how you can catch the action:
Start time: 7:30 p.m. PT.
Location: Stanford Stadium - Stanford, California.
TV: Fox Sports 1.
Radio: KNBR 1050 AM.
Streaming: Fox Sports Go.
"The Series: . . . it starts on Saturday with the first meeting between these two teams. UCF has never played a California school. Likewise, Stanford has never played a team from Florida (and the Cardinal have been around since 1891)."
"Keys to the game: Normally, you'd chalk up UCF, a team that just lost to the juggernaut that is FIU (3 FBS wins last season) as a W. Stanford used to eat average-ish teams like UCF for breakfast, but now it seems they might have trouble swallowing. Especially at home, the keys to the game should be to put the game in the refrigerator by the end of the first half.
But Stanford punted from the 37-yard line, ran up the gut twice on third and 13, and lost arguably their best defender in Harrison Phillips for the season — so now they have to treat UCF like they're USC at the Coliseum. The Cardinal will have to make adjustments very quickly, and if they don't, they could find themselves 0-2, something they haven't done since 2006 (!!!). Elite company, am I right? Here's what Stanford has to do to avoid getting in such vaunted territory."
