Dontae Keys can’t imagine the sorrow. Keys’ teammate, FIU Panthers center Api Mane, lost his mother, Siusavaii Mane, to liver cancer in March. She was 61. Mane had left the University of Kansas’ football team toward the latter stages of the 2020 season in order to care for his mom in East Palo Alto, California, 10 minutes from Stanford’s campus.

Football Roundtable: Back to Stanford Stadium

It’s been a long time coming, but the Cardinal are finally coming home. The last time the football team took the field in Stanford Stadium was a loss to Colorado on Nov. 14, 2020.

Now on a two-game win streak, however, the Cardinal (2-1, 1-0 Pac-12) direct their attention to No. 24 UCLA (2-1, 0-0 Pac-12) — a front-runner for the Pac-12 South title despite the fact that the Bruins have yet to play a conference game.
