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 $40, you get two tickets for seating in sections 229–230 or 236–237 to see the Stanford Cardinal football team take on the Washington State University Cougars at Stanford Stadium on Saturday, October 27 (a $94 value). Kickoff time is to be announced, and gates will open an hour and a half before kickoff.
After posting an 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 Josh Nunes. The senior signal-caller is off to a fast start, tossing eight touchdown passes and 1,152 yards in the team’s first five games without ever switching his wristband playbook from offensive schemes to family recipes. Not to be outdone in the backfield, running back Stepfan Taylor has helped the Cardinal maintain a balanced offensive attack, blistering defenses for 111 yards per game so far this season.
As the Cougars and the Cardinal 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.
