Preview Central: ASU at Stanford

Arizona native Trent Murphy

All of The Bootleg's Stanford-Arizona State coverage is in one spot. The Cardinal's first true, physical test of the 2013 season here, and there's no better way to prepare for kick-off than a perusal through this page.

Stanford kicks off against Arizona State at 4 p.m. PDT on FOX tonight. Stanford Stadium is sold out, keeping the Cardinal on pace to sell out their entire home schedule for the first known time in school history. For the first time this year, the Cardinal is dealing with a slew of significant injury issues, though fullback Ryan Hewitt is expected to play. There is, however, a clear-cut formula in hand to beat the Sun Devils.
