Stanford 10, Arizona 3
By Kevin Gemmell
TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona got its first points of the game on the second play of the second quarter with a 27-yard field goal from Jaime Salazar. Which means Stanford's defense has yet to give up any points in the first quarter all season.
Arizona quarterback Nick Foles completed two big passes as the quarter started to wind down. That seems to be the only way they'll move the ball. After one quarter, Arizona has -6 yards rushing.
Kudos to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton for his call on Stanford's fourth-and-1 in the first quarter. A misdirection pitch to Anthony Wilkerson that went for a 24-yard rushing touchdown. Perfect call on fourth down. The defensive end bit on the play and Wilkerson turned the corner untouched.
