This marks the second consecutive Big Game in which Stanford has failed to score a touchdown. It also marks the first year in which there were three Division 1 UC football schools (alright, Davis isn't quite I-AA yet, but close enough), and a team managed to lose to all three of them. ;) (I'm not sure if I like "oh fer UC" or "UC defeated" better for describing Stanford's futility.)
Second, it's doubly sweet to win Big Game when the ticket to said event was your birthday present to yourself. Even if the victory came two days early.
Yup, the old odometer of life clicks around another year. How the hell did I get to be 27?
