Arizona State @ Stanford
Current records: Arizona State 2-4; Stanford 2-4
What there is to know
The Arizona State Sun Devils should come into this game well rested after a week out. ASU and the Stanford Cardinal will square off in a Pac-12 battle at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at Stanford Stadium. Both teams are looking to build on the momentum of their previous victories.
The Sun Devils pulled off a solid win over the Washington Huskies two weeks ago, winning 45-38. ASU relied on the efforts of RB Xazavian Valladay, who rushed for a TD and 111 yards on 23 carries, and WR Elijhah Badger, who snatched two receiving touchdowns. Badger’s performance made up for a slower game against the USC Trojans three weeks ago.
Meanwhile, Stanford came out on top in a fight against Notre Dame Fighting Irish last week, slipping past 16-14. Stanford RB Casey Filkins did his thing and hit in a rushing touchdown.
Most of the team’s points came from the special teams, which contributed ten. K Joshua Karty scored three field goals, the longest 45 yards in the second quarter, which ultimately explained the difference in the contest.
ASU is expected to lose the next one by 3. They might be worth a shot against the spread though, as they are currently on a two-game winning streak against the ATS.
The Sun Devils had enough points to win and then some against the Cardinal when the two teams met in October last year, winning their game 28-10. The rematch might be a little tougher for ASU since the team won’t have home advantage. We’ll see if the location change makes a difference.
