Saturday’s Stanford at Arizona State NCAA Football Analysis:The Pac-12 championship game match up has been decided for a week but Arizona State secured home field advantage with a rout of rival Arizona 58-21 last weekend.  Number eleven Arizona State’s only league loss came at number seven Stanford in September.  This time around Arizona State avoids having to play on the road and have a great chance to win this game.  Stanford’s 42-28 win against Arizona State in the Pac-12 opener for both teams was completely one sided, leading 29-0 at half time.  The Sun Devils are going for their first Rose Bowl berth since 1997 and Stanford, which beat Wisconsin for its first Rose Bowl victory in 41 years last season.  Arizona State will likely be without leading scorer and rusher Marion Grice who injured his leg two weeks ago.  The senior running back watched the win over Arizona on crutches and is not expected to be ready for this game.  Stanford, on the other hand, is healthier getting defensive end Josh Mauro who missed last weeks game.  The bigger challenge for Stanford to overcome might be beating the same opponent twice in the same season.  The key to this game is going to be the stout Stanford defense against the Arizona State offense that ranks 8th in points scored.  Arizona State has improved in all areas offensively since their first meeting and they should have an easier time moving the ball the second time around.  Arizona State also improved as a rushing defense throughout the season, after being gashed by Wisconsin early in the season they have played much better.  They will need to prove it again against Stanford who averages over 200 rushing yards per game with Tyler Gaffney, the strongest running back in the conference.  Arizona State will have to throw the ball more without Grice and that will get them into trouble against the Stanford defense.  They’re defense will be the reason they head back to the Rose Bowl again this season.
Stanford at Arizona State NCAA Football Picks: Stanford +3 and over 55.5
Stanford at Arizona State Game Prediction: 31-26 Stanford
What to expect in this week 15 NCAA Football match up: The Stanford defense will step up again, as they have done against Oregon and Arizona State already this season.  They relish the big games spot light and will expose the Arizona State offense without its best player.  Offensively, Stanford will get to play their tempo of slow, run heavy, play action pass offense that will move the ball at will against a very suspsect Arizona State secondary.
