At No. 9 in the most recent College Football Playoff rankings, Stanford is still very much alive. The easiest path to the final four appears to involve both No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 7 Baylor losing on the road this weekend. But Cardinal coach David Shaw is more interested in his own team's remaining games, the next of which comes against Notre Dame. Instead of spending my time trying to guess whats going to happen, Id rather just play our games and see what happens," Shaw said today.
