The Big Meet one of the last track and field traditions

Only two sports are older than track and field at Stanford, and one of them, football, was not played for more than a decade in the early 1900s. Therefore, only baseball, which began in 1892, has a longer continuous tradition at Stanford.
Which brings us to the 123rd Big Meet, on Saturday (field events at 2 p.m., running events at 3:15 p.m.) at Cobb Track and Angell Field.
