After last season, Mike Stoops is no longer on the hot seat. The Arizona Wildcats actually played well with Stoops on the hot seat, but they're not off to a great 2011. Maybe the team needs their coach's back against the wall to play their best? In any event, they're probably in some trouble this Saturday against Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal.
Luck is playing for a Heisman Trophy and it appears that the Indianapolis Colts are in pole position to win his services in the NFL next season. Wait, what's that? Stanford's wins and losses matter, and they're playing for a BCS bowl? I didn't have the slightest clue.
Game date, time: 10:45 pm ET, Saturday, September 17th
Location: Arizona Stadium, Tuscon, Arizona
TV channel: ESPN
Spread: Stanford favored by 10
