A day in the life of a Stanford Tree

DISCLAIMER!!! This story is purely a work of fiction and satire. 7:12 A.M. The Tree rolls out of bed and proceeds to down seven shots of dry gin in order to obtain its necessary Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.15. To the Tree, it’s all part of a balanced breakfast. Despite

Cal v USC 5

Pac-12 Power Rankings: Week 5

1. Oregon (5-0, 2-0) There is no stopping the Ducks; they just keep rolling. Sixth in rushing yards per game (303), fourth in points per game (52.4), Oregon’s offense this year is perhaps more explosive than previous years. The squad poured 51 points on Washington State last week despite a

Pac-12 Power Rankings: Week 3

1. Oregon (3-0) Oregon claims the highly sought-after top spot in the Daily Cal power rankings after holding serve against Tennessee Tech.

Pac-12 Power Rankings: Week 2

1. USC (2-0) The No. 2 Trojans didn’t exactly light up the world against Syracuse in a 42-29 win on Saturday, but even a relatively subpar performance included six touchdown passes from Matt Barkley and 20 combined catches between Robert Woods and Marquise Lee. USC takes on No. 21 Stanford
