STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford athletic director Ted Leland apologized Monday to Brigham Young and the university's fans for a halftime show by the Cardinal band that poked fun at polygamy with five dancers wearing wedding veils.
Stanford beat BYU 37-10 Saturday at Stanford Stadium.
Leland said he would meet with the band to discuss possible sanctions.
"The actions of the Stanford band in Saturday's game were inappropriate, and I wish to apologize to BYU, their team, fans and alumni," Leland said. "We are committed to being good hosts to our opponents who visit Stanford and anything that doesn't reflect this is regrettable."
