The Pac-12 Conference television partners recently announced select kickoff times for four 2019 Stanford Cardinal football games. The Cardinal learned kickoff times and television designations for games against Northwestern, at USC, at UCF and against UCLA.

The Cardinal’s season opener at Stanford Stadium against Northwestern will kickoff at 1 pm PT on FOX. The Cardinal and Wildcats will meet for the eighth time, and the first time since 2015. Stanford has a 3-2-2 record against Northwestern. The two programs first met in 1933, playing to a 0-0 tie.

The Cardinal will travel to USC in Week 2 for a primetime showdown with the Trojans. That game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will kickoff at 7:30 pm PT on ESPN. Stanford and USC will play for the 99th time after the Cardinal posted a 17-3 win last season.

Stanford will travel to Orlando for a week three matchup with UCF. Kickoff against the Knights is set for 12:30 pm PT and will be televised on ABC, ESPN and ESPN2. In the only meeting to date, the Cardinal defeated UCF 31-7 in 2015.

The final game time announced on Thursday was a Thursday night (October 17) showdown at Stanford Stadium between Stanford and UCLA. That game will kickoff at 6 pm PT on ESPN. The Cardinal and Bruins have met 90 times previously and Stanford has won 11 straight in the series.

The Northwestern game will serve as Cardinal Kids Day, the Bill Walsh Legacy Game and will be presented by Stanford Children’s Health. Kids in the eighth grade or younger get in free with the purchase of an adult ticket.
