What we learned from Stanford's 27-20 win over Notre Dame:
The desert awaits: Shortly after Stanford's victory went final, Arizona State put a bow on its regular season with a 58-21 win against Arizona in the Territorial Cup. The Sun Devils' win secured home-field advantage for the Pac-12 Championship game on Saturday. It'll be a rematch from a Sept. 21 game at Stanford Stadium which the Cardinal won 42-28.
Fan support unrivaled: Stanford Stadium sold out for the seventh time this year, which marked the first time in history that the Cardinal played before sold-out crowds in every home contest. It didn't happen with Jim Harbaugh, it didn't happen with Andrew Luck, but Stanford has turned a corner in terms of the support it is being given by the community.
Cajuste getting heathy: Stanford lost an important facet of its offense when Devon Cajuste went down with a knee injury against UCLA on Oct. 19. He caught seven passes for 109 yards in that game and had just one catch for 19 yards over the next four. Against Notre Dame, Cajuste showed he is rounding back into form with three catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. If the 6-foot-4, 232-pound receiver can remain on the field, it'll be a big boost for the Cardinal.
