BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — The annual Big Game between Stanford and California always comes with the pageantry and intensity befitting a rivalry between two schools less than an hour apart.
This year's showdown features something that has been a little unusual over the past few decades: two successful teams.
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Stanford coach David Shaw is the first to admit that he hasn't been comfortable with his team all season. But as long as they keep winning, it doesn't matter to him.
The Cardinal once again got big plays from their passing game as they rallied for a 49-42 victory over UCLA on Saturday.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — After opening the season with four consecutive victories and high expectations, Stanford finds itself in an unusual situation when it hosts Oregon State on Saturday.
The Cardinal (5-4, 3-3 Pac-12) need a win to become bowl-eligible.
Stanford appeared in the Pac-12 championship game in five of David Shaw's first seven years as head coach. The worst the Cardinal has fared under Shaw is third in the Pac-12 North.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — It's never been particularly easy to defend the Air Raid offense that Mike Leach has been running for two decades at several schools.
The version he has now at Washington State is particularly challenging and is a major reason why the 14th-ranked Cougars (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) are having so much success this season heading into Saturday's showdown at No. 24 Stanford (5-2, 3-1).

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — The offensive inconsistency that has plagued Stanford despite four straight wins to open the season finally caught up to the Cardinal last week.
No. 14 Stanford now looks to bounce back from that loss at Notre Dame and find that offensive groove that has been missing all season when the Cardinal (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) host Utah (2-2, 0-2) on Saturday night.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Ian Book and Miles Boykin, the heroes of Notre Dame's Citrus Bowl victory on New Year's Day, worked their magic once again and a stifling defensive line chipped in as the No. 8 Irish broke a three-game losing streak to No. 7 Stanford with a 38-17 victory Saturday night.
Book threw for 278 yards and four touchdowns, including an 8-yard TD to Boykin, who had career highs in receptions (11) and yardage (144).
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Last year, Stanford made an in-season quarterback change, going to K.J. Costello late in the season to boost an offense that was relying too much on the running game and help the Cardinal surge a Pac-12 title game appearance.
This season, Notre Dame has made a similar move. Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly did not wait as long as Cardinal coach David Shaw to make the switch, and he also is still playing it coy about how committed he is to last week's starter, Ian Book.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Their hometowns are separated by 3,000 miles, their schools by 2,000 miles, their ages by 10 years and their experience as head coaches by about two decades.
Other than a few crisscrossed recruiting trips, Notre Dame's Brian Kelly and Stanford's David Shaw seem to share very little in common.
Yet, in terms of university mission statements, football success and academic achievement, the two head coaches couldn't be more similar.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Bryce Love has yet to match last year's record-setting season and Stanford football coach David Shaw said lack of consistent play by the offensive line has been a major contributor.
Hit by injuries, the offensive line has yet to start the same five guys in back-to-back games, and Shaw thinks that's just part of it.
"We still have some inconsistencies up front," Shaw said Tuesday. "We've addressed individual accountability."
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Two ranked teams. Two star players. The game between No. 7 Stanford and No. 20 Oregon on Saturday has plenty of hype.
And deservedly so.
The implications of the big game at Autzen Stadium could stretch beyond this weekend. It may play a part in the Pac-12 North, the league championship and — just maybe — the college football playoffs.
Oregon is undefeated but hasn't been challenged all that much with nonconference wins over Bowling Green, Portland State and San Jose State.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford will get star running back Bryce Love back for this week's Pac-12 North showdown against No. 20 Oregon but the seventh-ranked Cardinal will be without a key defensive player.
Coach David Shaw said Tuesday that outside linebacker Casey Toohill will miss the game against the Ducks (3-0, 0-0 Pac-12) with an undisclosed injury.
Shaw said Love was "100 percent" after resting some minor ailments last week when the Cardinal (3-0, 1-0) easily beat FCS-level UC Davis 30-10.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford made it through its season-opening three-game homestand unscathed. But with the schedule about to get much tougher, the Cardinal know they will need to be much better the next few weeks to remain perfect.
K.J. Costello overcame a rough start to throw two touchdown passes to JJ Arcega-Whiteside and No. 9 Stanford beat FCS-level UC Davis 30-10 on Saturday.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — All-America running back Bryce Love will miss No. 9 Stanford's game against UC Davis on Saturday with an injury.
Cardinal coach David Shaw would not disclose specifics about Love's injury. Love was the Heisman Trophy runner-up last season after running for 2,118 yards. He had 126 yards on 22 carries last week in a victory against Southern California after being held to 29 yards by San Diego State in the opener.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — After getting carved up for 641 yards passing and six touchdowns by Sam Darnold last year in two losses to Southern California, Stanford coach David Shaw might be looking forward to going up against an unproven freshman quarterback for the Trojans this year.
Stanford running back Bryce Love's decision to return for his senior year instantly made him a preseason front-runner for some of college football's top individual awards.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford quarterback K.J. Costello will miss spring practice with an undisclosed injury.
Coach David Shaw said Tuesday that he expects Costello to be fully healed by the start of fall training camp.
Costello took over as Stanford's starting quarterback last season. He completed 58.8 percent of his passes, averaging 7.5 yards per attempt with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions.
ATLANTA (AP) — David Shaw of Stanford has won the Dodd Trophy as coach of the year.
No. 15 Stanford finished 9-5 with a 37-35 Alamo Bowl loss to No. 13 TCU on Thursday night. Stanford beat Notre Dame and Washington when each team was ranked in the top 10.
The award honors scholarship, leadership and integrity, as well as success on the field.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Another season, another Stanford player as a Heisman Trophy finalist. With Cardinal players making the trip to New York five times since 2009, it's become as predictable as anything in college football.
Running back Bryce Love is the latest. But unlike his predecessor Christian McCaffrey, Love will be joining his teammates for what could be his last bowl game.
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Stanford signed 11 players on the first day of the early signing period, led by four-star quarterback Jack West and receiver Michael Wilson.
Cardinal coach David Shaw also announced the additions of four preferred walk-ons Wednesday led by linebacker Jake Lynch. Lynch is the son of former Stanford star and current San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch.
Among the other top players in Stanford's class are defensive end Thomas Booker and cornerback Kendall Williamson.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Stanford running back Bryce Love has been named the Pac-12 offensive player of the year and Washington lineman Vita Vea the defensive player of the year.
