FOOTBALL POST-GAME NOTES
at Stanford 45, Arizona State 35 (Stanford, CA - Stanford Stadium)
October 22, 2005
Stanford extended its win streak to three games (at Washington State, at Arizona, Arizona State), the largest since the Cardinal captured the final four games of the regular season in 2001 (at Arizona, California, Notre Dame, at San Jose State).
Stanford's third straight Pac-10 win marked the first time the Cardinal has won three of more straight Pac-10 games since the 1999 squad started its Pac-10 slate with five consecutive victories (Washington State, at Arizona, UCLA, Oregon State, at USC).
Stanford defeated Arizona State for the third straight time that the teams have played at Stanford Stadium.
Stanford did not commit a turnover for the third straight contest, while Arizona State had one ... Stanford is a perfect 4-0 this season when the Cardinal has fewer turnovers than its opponent and 0-2 when they commit more turnovers than their opponent.
Stanford head coach Walt Harris earned his first victory at Stanford Stadium.
The 7.0 sacks by Stanford were the most since the Cardinal had 8.0 in a 21-14 win over UCLA at Stanford Stadium on November 1, 2003.
