02:49 PM ET 02.12 | The Stanford football program got a boost when former running back Tyler Gaffney elected to quit baseball and return to the football program. Gaffney rushed for six yards a carry and seven touchdowns during the 2011 season, but spent the past year playing baseball in the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system. He was drafted in the 24th round by Pittsburgh, and hit .297 for the Pirates' Single-A affiliate in State College, PA. His return is a big deal for the Cardinal, who are losing star running back Stepfan Taylor to the NFL.

Cool. If I'm near Palo Alto one Fall Saturday, I buy a ticket to the game.
