The Stanford Cardinal hope to get back to their winning ways after their upset loss to the Washington Huskies. Stanford takes on Arizona this week.

The 3-1 Stanford Cardinal try to recover from a devastating road loss to the Washington Huskies when they head back home to face the 3-2 Arizona Wildcats. Stanford had trouble moving the football this past Thursday night against a surprisingly stout Washington defensive front, and Josh Nunes could not make the Huskies pay for going all-out to stop the run.

Now Stanford faces Arizona, a team that is coming off of two losses to two of the best teams in the Pac-12, in Oregon and Oregon State. Arizona is a bit of an enigmatic squad to figure out. They have a good offense that can move the football but isn't quite strong enough to put points on the board. Their defense has shown sparks of what they could be, and has been opportunistic in forcing turnovers. However, the Wildcats have surrendered over 40 points in each contest, including a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter to the Beavers.

The Stanford defense will probably be well-equipped to handle the Arizona offense, but can the Stanford offense perform well enough to keep up?
