The opening quarter of the 2016 season was dominated by the Cardinal in time of possession but not really by points. The first quarter features a punt return for a touchdown from McCaffrey called back because of a penalty, a 50-yard field goal from Ukropina and Stanford dominating time of possession.

On the first play of the second quarter, however, quarterback Ryan Burns opened things up with a beautiful 40-yard touchdown pass to Michael Rector. It was the first touchdown in Burns college career, and the first touchdown for Stanford in the 2016 campaign.
