Stanford band barred from performing at Big Game versus Cal

The Stanford marching band will not travel to Berkeley for Saturday's 119th Big Game between the Cardinal and the California Golden Bears.

The band known for its antics and often controversial halftime shows had already been serving a ban from traveling to away games for past rules violations, according to NBC Bay Area.

The university stated on Tuesday the band had not resolved enough of those problems to merit lifting the ban.

The band has been banned since May 2015 for what the university called violations from complaints by band members for sexually explicit and offensive acts, hazing and violations of alcohol and controlled substances -- althoughit has been allowed to travel to the Cardinal's two most recent bowl games.

In an online statement, the band said it would provide five buses for students to travel to Saturday's game.
