Stanford’s 23-13 win over Cal on December 1 was its ninth straight Big Game win. Although the victory ensured that the team’s seniors will graduate without ever having lost to the Bears, the play of a redshirt freshman, Paulson Adebo, ensured the victory. Adebo’s two fourth-quarter interceptions, the last a circus-like one-handed catch, prevented Cal from scoring and tying the game in the last few minutes.
Members of the Stanford Club, joined by some blue-clad Cal alums, were on hand to view the game from a large TV at Palooza Brewery and Astropub in Kenwood. Alums from both schools were buoyed later when they learned that each team is slated to play in a bowl game, Stanford on December 31 in the Sun Bowl and Cal on December 26 in the Cheez-it Bowl.
The bowl games end the football season and usher in the new year, signaling that it’s time to pay club dues for the upcoming year. Please fill out the coupon below or place it in the Stanford Club folder in the OVA office so you can participate in upcoming events in 2019.
