Stanford is doing something in 2021 that no college team has done since 2011.

The Cardinal are playing all three non-conference games against Power Five opponents. Couple that with their nine Pac-12 games revealed on Tuesday and Stanford is the first team in 10 years to play a schedule that includes only Power Five teams.

The last team to play all Power Five teams was USC in 2011.

Stanford has Kansas State, Vanderbilt and Notre Dame on its non-conference schedule. The Kansas State game is at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in Week 1. The Notre Dame game ends the regular season for both teams.

Below is the complete Pac-12 schedule for 2021. Each team plays five games against teams in the same division and four teams in the opposite division.
