Stanford updates future non-conference football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Stanford Cardinal have posted an update to their future non-conference football schedule in their 2015 media guide.

Stanford currently has 24 games scheduled through the 2027 season. The listing reveals a change in their future series with Northwestern and also lists a few previously unreleased dates against Notre Dame.

Back in 2011, Stanford and Northwestern agreed to a four-game football series. The games were scheduled for 2019 and 2021 in Evanston and 2020 and 2022 in Stanford. A year later, an additional home-and-home series was added for 2015 and 2016.

But with the Big Ten moving to a nine-game schedule, the 2016 contest was scrapped, and now a Stanford spokesperson has confirmed that the 2020 through 2022 games have been dropped as well. The lone games remaining are Sept. 5, 2015 at Northwestern and Aug. 31, 2019 at Stanford.

Stanford has played Notre Dame annually since 1997 and has games scheduled with the Fighting Irish through 2020. However, Stanford’s media guide currently does not list future games against Notre Dame in 2021 or 2025 through 2027.

Dates are now listed for Stanford-Notre Dame match-ups in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022, 2023, and 2024. Stanford’s announced non-conference games through 2027 are listed below:

Expect 2024 schedule to change. Pac 12 plays a 9 game con schedule and Stanford has 3 P5’s OOC in 2024 with TCU, Vandy, ND.

Also weird no ND game in 2021, as since ND plays USC at home means ND will not go to Cali for the first time in 25 years. ND always schedules stanford and usc alternating dates so they always get a game in Cali to recruit.
