PALO ALTO -- It’s sunny, yet hardly dry, at Stanford Stadium this afternoon.
The tarp was rolled off the field early to take advantage of the sun. However, more rain is expected at 5 p.m., when UCLA and Stanford kick off in the Pac-12 Conference championship game, according to accuweather.com.
Rain, hard at times, is predicted to go from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., then start again at 9 p.m. Stanford’s field is said not to drain well.
Wet conditions would seem to give Stanford the edge. The blue-collar Cardinal has an earthy tackle-to-tackle game, with Stepfan Taylor running behind a big offensive line.
