As is often the case with these sorts of things, the final question of the Q&A I exchanged earlier this week with Arizona Desert Swarm's Kevin Zimmerman asked me to predict how tomorrow's game would play out and to provide a final score. The first part of my answer is embarrassingly incoherent, but my score prediction is quite clear: 45-17 Stanford.
A couple of commenters called me out -- one saying that Arizona will cover the 9.5-point spread -- and I don't blame them. Predicting a 28-point victory in Tucson is unconventional. Preposterous, even. I'll stick by it, though, for reasons I'll outline in more detail in tomorrow's Cardinal Cram Session.
In the meantime, what's your prediction for the game?
