2017 Stanford Cardinal Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

The opener at Rice is a nice tune-up before proving that the team is back to a Pac-12 championship level with a big win at USC. After winning at San Diego State, the Cardinal start out 3-0 – all on the road – and then it’s muscle-flexing time with a home-opener victory over UCLA. Realisticaly, Stanford is 6-1 to start the year – at best – before getting a week off. After gutting it by Oregon State and Washington State on the road, a home win over Washington locks up the North before dealing with Cal and Notre Dame. It’s a favorable schedule – 11-1 isn’t crazy.

2017 Stanford Cardinal Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

After losing to USC on the road, and getting shocked by San Diego State and its nasty defense, a split against UCLA and Arizona State at home becomes a big problem. A loss to Oregon ends the North title dream, and splitting road games at Oregon State and Washington State ensures a mediocre season. After losing to Washington and Notre Dame, Stanford – if everything goes wrong – finishes 6-6.
