Stanford @ No. 22 Arizona State
Current Records: Stanford 3-2; Arizona State 4-1
What to Know
After a two-game homestand, the Stanford Cardinal will be on the road. Stanford and the Arizona State Sun Devils will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 10:30 p.m. ET Friday at Sun Devil Stadium, Frank Kush Field. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.
It may have taken double overtime to finish the job, but the Cardinal ultimately got the result they were hoping for last week with a 31-24 victory over the Oregon Ducks. The team accrued 17 points in the first half and coasted on those for the win. Stanford QB Tanner McKee was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 230 yards on 36 attempts.
Meanwhile, ASU strolled past the UCLA Bruins with points to spare last week, taking the game 42-23. ASU QB Jayden Daniels did work as he passed for two TDs and 286 yards on 18 attempts in addition to picking up 45 yards on the ground. Daniels’ 65-yard touchdown toss to WR Ricky Pearsall in the second quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
The Cardinal are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Stanford is now 3-2 while ASU sits at 4-1. A pair of defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Stanford is stumbling into the matchup with the 234th most rushing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 12 on the season. The Sun Devils have had an even harder time: they are 145th worst in the nation in rushing touchdowns allowed, with six on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
