Study Hall: Stanford 38, Arizona State 14

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Advanced stats from the 2013 Pac-12 Championship, a 38-14 Stanford win over Arizona State.

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

From Tuesday's Numerical:

In Stanford's first four drives, the Cardinal gained 270 yards in 21 plays, scored four touchdowns, and created a scenario almost exactly like the one from the first Stanford-ASU game this year.

On September 21, Stanford went up 39-7 before weathering a late ASU charge. This time around, the charge was less difficult to weather. A suddenly one-dimensional ASU offense couldn't sustain any momentum, and Stanford was able to tee off on quarterback Taylor Kelly, who finished 17-for-25 for just 173 yards with one score and five sacks (yards per pass attempt: 4.6). The Cardinal cruised to a 38-14 win and a second straight conference title.

Start smoking hot and dominate field position. That's a pretty good recipe for success.
