Spring Game Play-by-Play

It was an unusual Spring Game for sure. Not only was the annual public scrimmage to conclude Cardinal spring football held on the practice fields and not in Stanford Stadium, but also there was an array of offensive fireworks in the opening few series. We have the only account of all 111 plays from the 2006 Spring Game, showing the ebb and flow for the offense and defense, as well as special teams kicking action.
