Stanford has had about as bad a month as could be expected, losing three of four.
Getting demolished by Washington was one kind of dreadful but last week might have been worse as they were held to just five points at home.
Changes are coming this week for sure.
Arizona is also having a disappointing season though their standards are not as high as Stanford’s.
They have no conference wins and have been blown out three straight weeks. They were off last week though so perhaps they have regrouped. Maybe.
Stanford is at their wit’s end.
They scored just 5 points last week and that was with Christian McCaffrey in the lineup. McCaffrey is not having nearly the season he did a year ago but the bigger problem has been at quarterback.
They are finally turning to Keller Chryst, who almost everyone acknowledges is the most talented QB they have on the roster. I am not on the inside but everyone expected him to start from day one.
Let’s see what we have been missing.
Things would be even worse for the Cardinal were it not for the defense.
They are probably down a hair but giving up just 20ppg is pretty good. It is just shocking how bad the offense has been, scoring only 17ppg.
They should be able to win this one almost on defense alone, provided Chryst is ready for the moment.
The Wildcats are consistently above average but things have been messy this season.
Anu Solomon has been a no show due to health and poor play and without him they have not been able to get much going offensively.
Brandon Dawkins can run it but he is not much of a thrower so they have even been working in freshman Khalil Tate but he is not ready yet. Like Dawkins he can use his legs pretty well but beyond that it is a crapshoot.
While Stanford can lean on its defense no so for Arizona.
They are giving up 33ppg and in conference play that number is even higher.
There is not much to fear on that side the way that Scooby Wright was a player that needed to be accounted for in the past.
The only good thing Arizona has done this year is push Washington to overtime.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
I have been burned a few times by Stanford already so I have to admit I am getting gun shy. They normally roll over Arizona but there has been nothing normal about the season they are having so far.
Can thing turn a little?
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Stanford -5.5
For this one I am going to trust that Stanford defense and that the coaching staff know how to put Chryst in spots where he can succeed.
The offense has been so lame it is easy to forget just how good they can be with McCaffrey running all over the place.
