Twelve hours later, I'm still not sure where to begin with this game, so I guess I'll start at the top. The Cardinal arrived in Tempe, Arizona, on Saturday looking to build on the offensive success they enjoyed last week against Washington State, and all signs pointed towards another Stanford win. After all, the Cardinal beat ASU twice last year and hadn't dropped a game to the Sun Devils since 2008. Even though the struggles of the Stanford offense have been well documented, there was nothing frightening about the Arizona State defense through their first five games. Surely the Cardinal would use this win in the desert to build on their momentum and head into the back half of the schedule with a strong head of steam. That was the expectation, but instead the exact opposite happened.
