Football, or "pigskin," originally a pork byproduct, has become America's most popular pork-related pastime after recently topping baseball—a byproduct of sausage races. Commemorate sport’s other meat with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $30, you get two tickets to the Stanford football game versus University of Colorado at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, October 8, at 4:30 p.m. (a $60 value). Groupons should be exchanged for tickets at the ticket office at gate 2 on game day. Seats are located in the East/Sunny Goal section of the stadium.
The Stanford Cardinal make the gridiron sizzle with red-hot rushing attacks and a torrid touchdown passes, earning an Orange Bowl crown in 2010 and a top 10 ranking in AP's 2011 preseason poll. Instead of watching the game from an ominous raincloud, soak up the action from sun-dappled seats in sections 129-130, 136-137, 229-230, and 236-237. Twelve veteran starters return to the Cardinal this season, including Heisman Trophy runner-up Andrew Luck, a junior quarterback poised to shatter several of the team's passing records in 2011. Rookie linebacker James Vaughters plans to bolster the Cardinal's conference-leading sacking record, and junior running back Stepfan Taylor hopes to build a rustic cabin in the end zone after logging the second-highest rushing total in school history.
Stanford Stadium embraces visitors with a ring of 50,000 seats swathed in cheering fans. Two high-resolution video boards broadcast highlights in crystal-clear detail, and a natural-grass field also broadcasts the hearty roughage of clashing metal helmets in nature's unbelievably real 3-D.
