Headline Sports podcast with Barbara Mason: Cal on roll have won three of last four; Cardinal on four game win streak; plus more

The Cal Bears Matt Bradley (20) takes a fade away shot against the Colorado Buffaloes D’Shawn Schwartz (5) last Thursday night at Haas Pavilion

Headline Sports podcast with Barbara Mason:

#1 The one game that stands out for the Cal Bears is the loss they took against the Washington Huskies getting walloped 87-52. That got Cal head coach Mark Fox to regroup and the Bears came out and won their next two games against some tough schools Utah and Colorado.

#2 The Stanford Cardinal got a huge win over the Colorado Buffaloes 72-64. The Cardinal are No.21 and got help from leading scorer Bryce Wills who played with a sore ankle and led with a key lay up and 19 points in the win on Sunday.

#3 San Francisco Giant catcher Buster Posey feels like he’s back into the swing of things and a good example of that is when he went yard after hitting a two run home run in the third inning of a spring training game on Sunday against San Diego. He’ll be crucial for the Giants line up.

#4 While sitting on the bench and waiting to get the okay to return to action Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry is hoping to get back in the line up for Golden State from his broken bone in his left hand.

#5 It was almost like a one on one contest when the New Orleans Pelicans Zion Williamson who finished with 35 points against the Los Angeles Lakers LeBron James with 34 in the Lakers win over the Pelicans 122-114 on Sunday.

PALO ALTO–The Stanford Cardinal football program has had an up and down season in 2019. Entering play on Saturday afternoon they were a game under .500. After losing a tough home game to UCLA last week they looked to get back on track against the feisty Arizona Wildcats.

Stanford Quarterback KJ Costello was hoping to right the ship after missing the past three games due to injury. Despite jumping out to an early lead with a potent offense in the first quarter, Arizona couldn’t contain Costello on his return. The Wildcats took a 10 – 7 lead before the Cardinal exploded for 24 points in the second quarter.

Costello had 312 yards and three touchdowns and was in sync with his wideouts all game. Costello found 9 different receivers for positive gain. Simi Fehoko had three receptions for 97 yards and two touchdowns. The running game was in full effect for the Cardinal as the accrued over 150 yards on the ground.

The bell cow, Cameron Scarlett carried the ball 102 yards, averaging 5.4 yards a carry and also had two scored. Arizona was well in this game in the second half despite using two quarterbacks. Arizona put up one of their highest scores of the season but could not recover from two interceptions by quarterback Khalil Tate.

The second half of the game was a defensive battle. The Cardinal were able to hold Arizona to seven points in the half and hand Arizona its third consecutive loss. Stanford has bye next week in which they will gladly use to get healthy before they push for a bowl game in their final four matches.

Final: Stanford def. Arizona 41-31

The Cardinal have a bye on Nov 3rd and travel to Colorado to face the Buffaloes on Sat Nov 9th.
