TV Schedule: Saturday, Oct. 3, 10:30 p.m. ET, PAC12

Stadium: Stanford Stadium

Line: Stanford (-14)

Only one team enters this game by being ranked in the top 25, but both squads are very much alive when it comes to winning the Pac-12. Both teams also have one loss, which means loss No. 2 will end any chance either team had at making the College Football Playoff.

Ever since Stanford‘s disappointing Week 1 loss to the Northwestern Wildcats, the Cardinal have gone 3-0, and have completely started up the momentum train. Arizona did the exact opposite: Won three in a row and then lost its last game.

With Scooby Wright III nowhere to be found (injuries are too cruel for school), the Wildcats take a huge hit.

Let’s make this very simple: If Anu Solomon is making the passes for Arizona, I am giving the Wildcats the edge. If not, it could be another tough week for the Rich Rods.

Here’s to hoping that — well, if you are a fan of the Wildcats — Solomon is back in action after encountering an injury last weekend. Either way, Stanford QB Kevin Hogan should provide some fireworks for Cardinal fans.

One-loss teams (aka Arizona and Stanford), it’s your time to shine.

PREDICTION: Wildcats 24, Cardinal 17
