Campus Conversation: Rivalries Old And New

Ivan Maisel, Adam Rittenberg & Chris Low discuss Stanford's win over ASU (2:10), weigh in on the importance of Michigan/Michigan State (14:49), reminisce about the glory days of Tennessee/Alabama (20:09) and more. Plus, Walk-Ons (29:08) & Extra Points (40:21).

ASU records third turnover (0:46)

Stanford is looking more like Stanford again, wearing down a young Arizona State defense with ball control. Cardinal doing it in an un-Stanford-like fashion, running more effectively outside the tackles. Cam Scarlett, who had rushed for a total of 48 yards vs. FBS opposition this season, has 54 yards and a TD tonight subbing for the (again) re-injured Bryce Love.

Mystified as to the empty seats at Sun Devil Stadium. Then I remembered that the Cardinals are playing a home game tonight. As if the Pac-12, with seven teams in NFL markets, didn't have enough issues.

Costello launches 28-yard TD (0:17)
Love limps to the sideline (0:38)

If you like defense and a running clock, then Stanford and Arizona State played a half for you. The extra five days of R&R did little to cure what ails the Cardinal's offense. Stanford held the ball for 19:58 and gained 183 yards, 73 of them in the final two minutes. A holding penalty took a Cardinal TD off the board. Arizona State needs to get its defense off the field in the second half. Holding onto the ball (literally) would help. The Cardinal's two field goals came after Sun Devil turnovers.

Stanford RB Bryce Love will play against Arizona State tonight, coach David Shaw announced. He was previously referred to as "questionable" due to an ankle injury.

Stanford quarterback K.J. Costello on the team's recent slow starts and what it will take to overcome them.


Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Stanford coach David Shaw learned Saturday morning that running back Bryce Love wouldn't play against Utah. Love was sore after some moderately strenuous workouts. Shaw expects Love back after the open week against Arizona State.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Stanford coach David Shaw on the inevitable calls for him to throw the ball more with the run game struggling. "Those people don't know me. Those people don't understand this program. Those people don't understand what it takes to get where we are. It's a proven philosophy."

A big night for Utah's starting backfield of quarterback Tyler Huntley (17 of 21 passing, 199 yards, 1 TD) and running back Zack Moss (160 rush yards, 2 TDs). The Utes are always good enough on defense and special teams, as they showed Saturday night at Stanford. But if the offense takes off, Utah will be a factor in the Pac-12 South.

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Utah delivers a dominant 40-21 win over No. 14 Stanford by controlling the line of scrimmage, causing havoc on defense and executing a balanced offensive attack. Kyle Whittingham's team really needed this after losing to the Washington schools and remains alive in the South division. Stanford enters the open week reeling after consecutive blowout losses.

Utah QB avoids sack then finds WR for TD (0:49)

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

A strong third quarter for K.J. Costello and Stanford, which outscored Utah 14-3 to cut the Utes' lead to 27-21. Costello is settling in and finding open targets in a vertical passing game, and junior Trevor Speights, getting the bulk of carries with Bryce Love out, is finding a bit of running room. It's important for the Stanford defense to hold Utah to field goals or nothing the rest of the way as the Utes begin the fourth quarter in Stanford territory.

Stanford WR is wide open in the end zone for TD (0:44)
