LOS ANGELES (AP) - Stanford has played in four straight major bowl games and the past two Rose Bowls, building a resilient football power at an improbable place.
The Cardinal's reward for all that consistency this week? They were picked to finish second behind Oregon in the Pac-12 North Division yet again.
Yet Stanford coach David Shaw doesn't perceive any slight in the preseason conference media poll. He believes it's a testament to the overall power of the Pac-12, which appears to be stacked with deep, talented teams heading into his fourth season on The Farm.
