Despite the work of Stanford and teammate Adolpus Washington, the Senators came up short in the 12-6 loss.
How did Stanford feel about his performance?
"I'm kind of a little upset that we couldn't finish up with the victory," said Stanford. "The last interception was kind of my fault as I bent the post in when I really should have kept running. We have a sophomore quarterback so we're going to have to get together and continue to put in a lot of work so we can both be on the same page next week."
Despite Sunday's outcome, Stanford knows the recruiting process is not close to coming to an end. How has all the attention been for the standout wide receiver?
"It's tiresome but it can be fun at the same time," said Stanford. "A lot of different colleges wanting you is a good thing, but it can also be the worst thing. It can get annoying as you have to call coaches and talk about all the same things with them for hours so it can get tiresome."
With Washington saying Michigan State is set to receive an official visit; will Stanford be joining him on a visit to East Lansing?
"Michigan State is not a school I feel I can go into and be a good fit for me," said Stanford. "I know Adolphus likes Michigan State a lot and if he goes there I'll wish him nothing but the best of luck. Whatever is best for him is good for me."
Starting off with a loss has not dampened Stanford's goal for this fall.
"9-1," said Stanford. "We want to go 9-1 and get into the playoffs so we can win state."
