Hollywood, FL (AP) - Jim Harbaugh is sure Stanford fans will
show up for the Orange Bowl.
Even though the Cardinal are playing some 2,500 miles away from
the home stadium they don't always fill, Harbaugh is confident.
"We sold 8,000 tickets in one morning after the announcement,"

are really excited about this trip, so I think they'll turn out for

from alumni located as far away as Moscow after one of the best
seasons in school history.
