STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Stanford coach David Shaw sat his players down this week to make sure they understood this year's annual East Coast trip carries special meaning.

The matchup between No. 5 Stanford (1-0) and Army (1-1) at West Point on Saturday has a historical significance for the Cardinal and personal importance to Shaw.

In 1928, head coach and New York native Glenn ``Pop'' Warner took Stanford east of the Mississippi for the first time in a 26-0 loss against Army in front of some 86,000 fans at the old Yankee Stadium.

Shaw, whose father served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, also said about ``10 to 12'' of his current players - a roster with roots in 30 different states - have a family connection to the service academies.
