Stanford has developed a habit in recent seasons of mid-season funks followed by strong finishes. This appears to be the case again as the Cardinal are looking to bounce back from double-digit losses to Notre Dame and Utah. The injury loss of Bryce Love was huge as the Cardinal failed to have success in the passing game. Even so, they are 6-2 off a bye under coach David Shaw and have covered two straight. The Sun Devils are notoriously dangerous as a home underdog in prime time games, but this is a difficult matchup for them.

Notre Dame already has cleared some major hurdles on a difficult schedule to position itself for a potential playoff bid. The Irish could be in a letdown spot Saturday as they take on Pittsburgh before heading into a bye week. They survived major tests in prime-time showcase games against Stanford and Virginia Tech, winning both by blowout. But the Panthers have historically given Notre Dame a tough time. Their Swiss-cheese defense is a major concern and this one could get out of hand. But their offense has come along well and that should be enough to clip this number.
