Due to a series of changes in the makeup of conferences, has been required to remove many of the posters which we had previously offered for sale. This game is one of the posters affected.

Hopefully this will be only a temporary setback. You can contact us at if you wish to inquire about any prospects of reinstatements for the upcoming holidays. You will receive a prompt and personal reply. We thank you for your patience, and more than share your frustration.

So Rough, They Switched To Rugby!

The Cardinal stopped the Golden Bears for the second straight year, but what made this game notable was that it was the last Big Game played under football rules for the next 15 years. So rough was the play on the field that after this season was over, both Stanford and its East Bay rivals decided to switch to rugby as a presumably kinder and gentler way to spend an Autumn afternoon. And while the Golden Bears returned to the "American" game in 1915, the Cardinal persisted in the "English" game until finally relenting in 1920. In the interim period, Stanford played its "Big Game" against Santa Clara, while Cal staged its "Big Game" against Washington.
