Stanford to host William & Mary in 2020

By Kevin Kelley -

The Stanford Cardinal will host the William & Mary Tribe in 2020, the two schools announced on Thursday.

Stanford and William & Mary will square off on Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020 at Stanford Stadium in Stanford, California. The game will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.

William & Mary is a member of the Colonial Athletic Association in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). So far in 2017, the Tribe are 2-5 overall and 0-4 in conference play.

The addition of William & Mary tentatively completes Stanford’s non-conference schedule for the 2020 season. The Cardinal are also slated to travel to Notre Dame on Oct. 10 and host BYU to close out the regular-season on Nov. 28.

William & Mary is Stanford’s first schedule game against an FCS opponent since the Cardinal defeated UC Davis in 2014.

They’re both academically elite. Those types of schools like to play each other. Stanford-Rice, Duke-Northwestern, etc. W&M allegedly is harder for in-state students to be accepted into than UVA is.

Down go the Cardinals! W&M to employ the particle accelerator offense. W&M will also confuse them by calling out math formulas at the line of scrimmage.
