Playlists to pump you up for the Big Game against Stanford

It’s Big Game weekend and you’ve had your game day outfit picked out for months, studied the art of your dad screaming at the TV for years and even privately defaced some Stanford paraphernalia in your dorm room. But with our Big Game playlists, we expect you to go even further: hijack a car (okay, maybe not), roll those windows down and let the world know with your mediocre singing voice what it means to be a winner… we mean… a Golden Bear. Who are we kidding? They’re pretty much synonymous.
