This weekend, I went to the NFC Championship game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. We planned the trip at the last-minute. We didn’t get to see much of Seattle, but being around for all the excitement surrounding the game was fun. To top it off, the game itself featured a memorable come-from-behind win by the home team. It was a great time.
The fifth-ranked Stanford Cardinal football team took on the Utah Utes this afternoon at the University of Utah’s Rice-Eccles Stadium. Both teams played well, but I would say that Utah controlled more of the game. Utah’s defense never really let Stanford get in a rhythm on offense, and Utah’s offense repeatedly ran the same few plays (draws and wide receiver screens) because Stanford simply could not stop them. A goal line stand with less than a minute left gave Utah the upset victory.
