Halftime: Stanford 16, Arizona 10

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Stanford leads Arizona 16-10 at the half.

  • Best player: It was linebacker Shayne Skov until he was hurt in the second quarter. Kicker Jordan Williamson has been fantastic, converting field goals of 20, 33 and a career-long 45. He's also had more depth on his kickoffs.

  • Best call: Without a doubt, the fourth-and-1 call at the Arizona 24-yard line. A misdirection pitch that forced the defensive end to bite on the initial pitch. Anthony Wilkerson took the flip on the backside and then scampered 24 yards for the score.

  • What Stanford needs to do: Stay balanced. The Cardinal are running the ball well. The loss of Skov -- who was carted off from the sidelines -- is a big one. They can't let that emotionally deflate them. Same with tight end Coby Fleener on offense, who hasn't returned since taking a big shot in the first quarter. His return for the second half is unknown. He has been walking the sidelines, but without his helmet.

  • What Arizona needs to do: Fortunately for them, Andrew Luck isn't playing a great game. Running the ball doesn't appear to be an option, which was predictable. Nick Foles is proving to be as accurate a quarterback as expected. Their best chance is to stay in the air. There is great risk being a pass-only team. But with that comes great reward.
