A football's distinctive construction allows it to be thrown in a tight spiral, kicked through the uprights, or filled with helium so that it can return to its mother, the blimp overhead. Take possession with this GrouponLive deal: for $30, you get two tickets for seating in sections 201, 205–208, 218–220, 226–228, or 238–240 to see the Stanford Cardinal football team take on the Oregon State Beavers at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, November 10 (up to a $74 value, including fees). Kickoff time is 12:05 p.m., and gates will open an hour and a half before kickoff.
After posting a 11–1 regular-season record on their way to a Fiesta Bowl berth last season, the Stanford Cardinal hope to continue their run of dominance under the leadership of first-year starting quarterback Kevin Hogan. The signal-caller is off to a fast start, tossing two touchdown passes against Colorado in his first extensive action of the season. Not to be outdone in the backfield, running back Stepfan Taylor has helped the Cardinal maintain a balanced offensive attack, blistering defenses for 113 yards per game so far this season.
As the Cardinal and the Beavers line up before the kickoff, Stanford Stadium becomes a frenzied, bright-red mosaic of 50,000 cheering fans. Two video boards broadcast highlights in clear detail, and a natural-grass field also broadcasts the hearty roughage of clashing metal helmets in nature's unbelievably real 3-D.
