  09/19/21 - Tanner McKeeSo/2024, Stanford, 6-5, 228 (DS#10 QB) + More +

  The Stanford Cardinal finally are heading home to play in front of fans in their own stadium, and they're taking a two-game winning streak with them. Tanner McKee ran for a touchdown and threw for two more as Stanford beat Vanderbilt 41-23 Saturday night in the first meeting between the programs best known for their academics. Stanford (2-1) started the season playing the first three games on the road, the only Power Five program this season to even play its first two straight games away from home.

That's after playing the final four games of the 2020 season away from home because of the pandemic. "It's been a long time," Stanford coach David Shaw said. "Was kind of being facetious at the end of the game. We have to give the guys a map to the game day locker room. We haven't been there in so long. We're excited. We're excited to finally be able to go home. It's been a long road trip." Vanderbilt (1-2) lost its eighth straight at home. The Commodores' last home win was Nov. 23, 2019. Stanford took control scoring 13 points in the final 1:53 of the second quarter. The Cardinal then scored on the first possession of the third quarter for 20 points. "It was fast," Shaw said. "A lot of stuff happened." - Stanford/AP College Football

  After Nathaniel Peat broke a tackle and turned the corner, the Coliseum collectively gasped as the speedy Stanford tailback sprinted all the way down his sideline. "I just saw green grass, and I had to put the wheels on," Peat said with a grin. When he finally stopped, his 87-yard touchdown run had given the Cardinal a whole lot more than their first seven points in an impressive 42-28 upset of No. 14 Southern California on Saturday night. "Guys saw Nate take off, and there were great blocks down the field," Stanford coach David Shaw said. "It just gave us a lift, and then we got a stop, and we said, ‘Hey, you know, we can play with these guys. And not only can we play with them, we can dominate." The Cardinal did just that in a victory that dramatically altered the early season trajectories of two longtime Pac-12 rivals.

Tanner McKee passed for two touchdowns and rushed for another score in his first collegiate start as Stanford (1-1, 1-0 Pac-12) rebounded from a rough 24-7 loss to Kansas State last week in which the Cardinal didn't even score until the final minutes. Peat racked up a career-high 115 yards, and Kyu Blu Kelly returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown in Shaw's 63rd conference victory at Stanford, moving him past Pete Carroll for ninth-most in Pac-12 history. "It shows who we are as a team," Peat said. "We have a lot of playmakers and a lot of potential. Last week, we really didn't show who we were." McKee went 16 of 23 for 234 yards, and he hit Elijah Higgins and Brycen Tremayne for TDs as Stanford rolled to a 29-point lead in the fourth quarter of its ninth victory over USC in the California rivals' last 14 meetings. - Stanford/AP College Football

  The 2021 Stanford Football captains were announced by Bradford M. Freeman Director of Football David Shaw on Thursday evening inside Luck Auditorium. The Cardinal captains are annually voted upon by the student-athletes on the roster. Representing Stanford as captains this season will be: returning captain Thomas Booker, alongside newly appointed captains Jordan Fox, Houston Heimuli and Michael Wilson. Heimuli is a fifth-year from Woods Cross, Utah who is studying human biology. A dynamic fullback, Heimuli was named All-Pac-12 honorable mention in 2020. He was integral in the improved Cardinal running game, as Stanford tallied 15 rushing touchdowns in just six games. - Stanford Football

  Defensive end Thomas Booker chose to return for his senior season. Earning double majors in economics and communication, he is on track to graduate after the 2022 winter quarter. Booker finished with 21 tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack while making six starts last season. He also blocked two extra points and recovered a fumble. "We're looking for a defense to be dominant, getting back to our Stanford defense where we're making tackles for loss, getting after the passer, we're stopping the run on first and second down," Fox said. "Be dominant and that's our goal this year." - Oakland Tribune

  Cal and Stanford had just one player each selected for first-or second-team preseason All-Pac-12 honors. Stanford senior defensive end Thomas Booker was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection both as a defensive lineman and as an all-purpose special teams player. The Cardinal also had five honorable mentions: junior running back Austin Jones, senior wide receiver Michael Wilson, junior offensive tackle Walter Rouse, junior cornerback Kyu Blu Kelly, and junior punter Ryan Sanborn.

Booker has been among the most productive Stanford defensive linemen over the last several years and earned preseason fourth-team all-American honors from Phil Steele as well as preseason first-team all Pac-12 honors from Athlon. In six games last season, Booker recorded 21 total tackles, including three for loss, and one sack. As a special teams player, Booker recorded two blocks, leading to his first-team placement in the preseason Pac-12 media voting. - Oakland Tribune
