The Stanford Cardinal host the Arizona Wildcats in Palo Alto, Calif., looking to get back on the winning track after being dropped by Washington last week.
Stanford (3-1) struggled to move the ball against the Huskies, producing just 235 total yards. Quarterback Josh Nunes went 18-for-37 and threw an interception for the now No. 18 Cardinal, while running back Stepfan Taylor only rushed for 75 yards on 21 carries.
The good news? With a hefty offensive line and pounding run game, the Cardinal will have the advantage in the run game against the small but speedy 3-3-5 Arizona defense.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats will have the challenge of recovering from a painful 38-35 loss to the Oregon State Beavers.
The depth-challenged Wildcats (3-2) are reeling. They could be without starting center Kyle Quinn and "bandit" safety Jared Tevis, both of whcih injured their ankles against the Beavers. Quarterback Matt Scott will look to rebound from two turnover-plagued losses. But he'll have help from a rising star in running back Ka'Deem Carey, who is quietly averaging more than 100 yards rushing per game.
Game time, TV channel: 3 p.m. ET, FOX
Point spread: Stanford opened as a 12-point favorite
