HOUSTON – Andrew Epstein made two diving saves and Corey Baird and Sam Werner scored Stanford's final shootout goals to give the Cardinal their second straight College Cup title Sunday, 5-4 over Wake Forest after the teams played 110 scoreless minutes.
Stanford didn't allow a goal in the tournament, becoming the first team since Wisconsin in 1995 to accomplish the feat and win the national championship.
The game was the sixth national championship to go to penalty kicks, and the first since Virginia beat UCLA in 2014.
Stanford finished 15-3-5 after beginning the season 0-3-1.
Stanford beat Wake Forest 2-1 in overtime in the quarterfinals last season on the way to its first national championship.
