Arizona State (2-0) is nationally ranked at No. 23 after outlasting the Wisconsin Badgers last week in front of 66,155 fans. The "Men in Black" survived a final drive snafu and began their tough four-game stretch with a win.
Now comes the really hard part.
The Sun Devils travel to "The Farm" in Palo Alto to take on the defending Pac-12 and Rose Bowl champion No. 5 Stanford Cardinal (2-0). The Cardinal, along with the Sun Devils, had an odd Week 1 bye and return home to take on the upstart Devils.
The teams haven't met since 2010 and Stanford has won the past two contests, however Arizona State leads the all-time series 16-11. "The Farm" seems to be kryptonite for the Devils as they have only won once in Palo Alto since 2000 and are 6-7 all time.
