Spartans Add Stanford to 2024 Home Schedule, Increase Bill Walsh Legacy Game Series


SAN JOSE, Calif. - San José State is adding a home game against Stanford on Nov. 30, 2024 to their 2024 non-conference football schedule, announced by Director of Athletics Jeff Konya on Wednesday. The Spartans previously scheduled home game against Stanford in 2025 is now on the road and the Bill Walsh Legacy Game series will now have six future meetings including three at CEFCU Stadium.

"We are excited to extend the Bill Walsh Legacy Game series to six games over the next dozen seasons," said Konya. "We look forward to hosting the Stanford Cardinal on Thanksgiving weekend next year and providing a highly competitive football series to the Bay Area."

This will be the first time the Spartans have had seven home games since the 2006 season and the Spartans previous non-conference home game in 2024 against Jacksonville State will no longer be played.
