Stanford answers

This time Stanford didn't waste a big kickoff return.

Arizona was able to kick away from Chris Owusu, but Michael Thomas isn't bad either -- he exploded for 56 yards to the Wildcats 44.

Andrew Luck tied the game 7-7 on a 30-yard pass to Jim Dray.

What this means is the Cardinal won't have another bad start on the road, like they did last weekend at Oregon State. For a moment, Stanford was headed that way.

It also helps that the Cardinal just recovered an Arizona fumble.

Keep note for Arizona: The Wildcats' top two running backs, Nic Grigsby and Keola Antolin, got touches on that first possession. Both were questionable with injuries.

Grigsby and Antolin have the sort of speed that could stress the Stanford defense.
