Stanford, Arizona State Ready For Different Looks In Rematch For PAC-12 Championship

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:41:20 AM

There wasn’t any last-second play or shocking upset that set up this year’s PAC-12 Championship game. In fact, the title game match up has been set up for more than a week. The seventh-ranked Stanford Cardinal will clash with the No. 11 Arizona State Sun Devils in this year’s PAC-12 title game, an online sports betting rematch of a September game that the Cardinal had no problem coming out on top in as they won 42-28. Arizona State is projected to put up a much stronger fight this time around, but whether or not it’s not enough to knock off Stanford is another story entirely.

PAC-12 Championship Game

#7 Stanford Cardinal vs. #11 Arizona State Sun Devils

Saturday December 7, 2013 – 7:45 PM ET

Sun Devil Stadium, Tempe, Arizona

College Football Sports Betting Line: Arizona State – 3

The Sun Devils’ only loss inside the conference was that defeat at the hands of the Cardinal back in September, and they have been unstoppable at home with a seven-game win streak in the state of Arizona. Stanford won’t underestimate what this opponent can do, especially after the challenge they got from UCLA in last year’s title game.

College Football Betting Preview: Stanford

The Cardinal had blown away the Bruins in their regular season finale before matching up again in the PAC-12 Championship game, and the second game was much closer as Stanford scraped past them with a 27-24 win. Both teams will try and make adjustments after their initial meeting, and the Cardinal cannot afford to expect things to go down the same way with the stakes much higher now. Stanford has been rolling since a shocking loss to Utah thanks in big part to a defense that ranks 13th in the nation in points per game allowed with 19 against on average, although its offense has put up 90 over its last two. Kevin Hogan continued to struggle in the win over Notre Dame with two picks and must be more efficient, and the Cardinal will continue to rely on their workhorse running back Tyler Gaffney who added another 189 yards and a score against the Fighting Irish.

College Football Betting Preview: Arizona State

Arizona State conceded a 29-0 halftime deficit and trailed 39-7 heading in to the fourth quarter of its initial game against Stanford before Taylor Kelly put up three touchdowns in the final frame to close the gap to a 42-28 final. Kelly and the Sun Devils will try and build on that finish as the 25 th-ranked passing attack in the nation gets after the Cardinal defense from the outset, with a much more aggressive attack. Arizona State has put up 30 or more points in three-straight games heading in to this rematch, and Kelly can certainly move the ball both through the air and on the ground. Senior running back Marion Grice will miss Saturday’s game, so Kelly will need to be relied on even more.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

It certainly won’t be easy for Stanford on the road in a tough environment, especially considering the way that Arizona State has played at home. However, the Cardinal dominated this online betting match up the first time around and at the very least they should be able to keep this rematch close with a shot at back-to-back PAC-12 championships this time around.
