The 1976 Stanford Cardinals football team represented Stanford University in the 1976 college football season. They were led by head coach Jack Christiansen. After a disappointing season, Christiansen was fired before the last game of the season, the Big Game versus Cal; Christiansen coached that final game, which Stanford rallied to win in the final two minutes.[1]
