Stanford and Cal meet on Saturday in the 116th edition of the Big Game. Stanford has won the past three after dropping seven of the previous eight.
This video, a ritual Bearial, is a rite of passage that Stanford partakes in every year. Allegedly. If you happened to be leading a group of foreign exchange students around the Stanford campus and stumbled across this scene, here's guessing you'd have a hard time explaining how this relates to college football.
Oh, and then there's the story of the time Stanford students stole the Stanford Axe from Cal. It's worth your time, and just another reminder of the glorious hoopla that makes college football great.
