Stanford honored its Olympic athletes during halftime of its football game against Washington State on Saturday.

At the 2016 Olympics, athletes from Stanford claimed 27 medals, more than athletes from any other U.S. university.

Katie Ledecky led Stanford with five Olympic medals in Rio. She is expected to make her collegiate swimming debut on Friday.

Fellow Stanford swimmers Maya DiRado and Simone Manuel each claimed four Olympic medals in Rio.

The Olympians posed for a photo with former Stanford golfer Tiger Woods. Woods did not compete in Rio, where golf returned the Olympics for the first time since 1904.
