The game against Stanford is one of four the U.S. will play over the Oct. 12-13 weekend, all against 2013 NCAA tournament teams. The others are Navy, Georgetown, and Towson. Last year, Stanford played host to the U.S. team. One connection between the two: Stanford head coach Amy Bokker is a U.S. assistant.

Stanford next will return home for its alumnae game (Oct. 19), and the Stanford Play Day, involving six schools in a series of short games on Oct. 26 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.  The fall season concludes Nov. 1 with an intrasquad matchup (4 p.m.).

Stanford is coming off a 14-6 season that featured the program’s first NCAA tournament victory – an 8-7 triumph over Notre Dame. Stanford won the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament title for the eighth time in nine years.

Stanford’s Rachel Ozer and Anna Kim are returning IWLCA All-Region players and were among six Cardinal named to the All-MPSF team.
