The Stanford Cardinal should win this game comfortably, but they've been shaky defensively through 3 games and this could be a look ahead spot with Arkansas on deck. The Eastern Washington Eagles haven't won a game, but they hung around with Ole Miss and Cincinnati. Eastern Washington is battle tested through 3 games and could do just enough to keep us within the number. Give me Eastern Washington and the free buckets.
