After opening the season with a painful loss against Northwestern, Stanford has gone back to their winning ways and are back to old habits with a 6-1 SU and ATS record in their past seven. The Cardinals will try to continue their dominance when they host the high-powered Arizona Wildcats Saturday.
- The OVER is 5-0 in Arizona’s past five games.
- Stanford is 22-3 SU in their past 25 games at home.
- Despite starting last week, Stanford QB Kevin Hogan’s status is uncertain due to an ankle injury.
With quarterback Kevin Hogan nursing an injured ankle, Stanford has been leaning on running back Christian McCaffery. The sophomore rusher has averaged 5.1 yards per carry and 20.1 yards receiving on the season.
The legend of Anu Soloman continues to grow in Arizona as the quarterback has thrown for 11 touchdowns and no interceptions so far this season. However, the sophomore signal caller left last week’s loss to UCLA in the second quarter after suffering an injury.
