TEMPE, Ariz. -- From the Sun Devil Stadium press box:
WR Michael Jones is in -- his first reception went for 9 yards and a first down.
Sun Devils can't be too happy that a 15-play drive only yields a field goal, but a drive that kills 7:15 off the clock can't be easy on the Stanford D in this heat.
The Cardinal offense needs a few first downs to let the D rest -- which it promptly does. QB Tavita Pritchard looks sharp -- completely different than he did vs. Oregon State. Wow! Nice drive to answer.
Pritchard is 5-for-5 for 68 yards on a nine-play 80-yard TD drive to take a 7-3 lead.
Bam. ASU bounces back with a 46-yard completion, Carpenter to Chris McGaha. But the Cardinal pressure is getting through the Sun Devil OL. He's getting hit after almost every pass, though only one sack so far.
It's second-and-goal on the 4 (after a loss of 2) as the quarter ends.
Stanford is winning in the trenches so far, thwarting the ASU running game and getting after Carpenter.
