Stanford has lost seven straight games to Notre Dame, putting a little extra significance on this week's game.
"We lost a game, we didn't lose our integrity," Harbaugh said. "We didn't lose our confidence as a football team. We didn't lose who we are as a team. Tough loss, no question about that -- Big Game, Cal, you prepare all year round for that kind of football game. They played better than us. We have to man up and move on."
