Stanford is looking to avenge its straight-up loss to San Diego State as a 9-point favorite from a year ago. The Aztecs controlled the pace and held the Cardinal’s passing attack to just 80 yards and a completion percentage under 50%.
San Diego State lost star running back Rashaad Penny to the NFL, but replaces him with Juwan Washington, who had 1,200 yards at 6.6 yards per carry as a backup through his first two years.
Heisman favorite Bryce Love is back for Stanford. But the Cardinal’s defense comes with plenty of question marks.
They gave up 5.98 yards per play (90th among FBS teams), their worst mark in more than a decade. The front seven was porous, ranking 80th in yards per carry against.

The total opened at 51.5 at Pinnacle, rose half a point, and has since been bet down to 48.
