The NCAA football 2013 live stream and televised schedule of games will finish up during the evening of Saturday, Dec. 7 with several conference championships to be decided. Among them will be the Pac-12, which has had its share of ups and downs this season, yet two teams will battle it out for the conference title. It will be No.7 Stanford vs. No. 11 Arizona State in a game for bragging rights ahead of BCS Bowl season. Will it be the Cardinal or Sun Devils reigning supreme? The latest televised and live streaming NCAA football game arrives Saturday courtesy of ESPN’s sports networks.
According to ESPN.com in a Dec. 6 report, Arizona State enters this game at 10-2 overall with an 8-1 record in the conference. The only loss they’ve suffered in the conference came during their visit to play Stanford back on Sept. 21. Now they’ll look to avenge that loss and prevent Stanford from winning another Pac-12 title. Sun Devils coach Todd Graham said of this matchup and what’s at stake on Saturday night:
"I can tell you this: Our guys are determined, and we need everyone in these seats. We need to be loud and proud and make it a great home-field advantage. Our guys want to win this and go to the Rose Bowl."
To their advantage, Arizona State gets home field advantage in this matchup, where they’ve been a perfect 7-0 this past season. Had the game been played at Stanford Stadium, the Sun Devils may have been in trouble, as the Cardinal are on a 16-game win streak at their home. Now with home field on their side, the Sun Devils will look to capture the conference championship, one weekend after routing Arizona 58-21 in their final game of the regular season.
Another factor which may be on the Sun Devils’ side is their scoring ability. They currently rank eighth in the nation with 43.3 points per game. Stanford ranks 12th overall in defense though, holding teams to just 19 points per contest, while putting up 32.8 points a game themselves. Back on Sept. 21 they ended up defeating then-No.23 Arizona State 42-28, although the Sun Devils ended up outscoring them 28-13 in the second half, to give a slight scare.
Odds makers had Arizona State as 3 point favorites since the line came out, with the Sun Devils now up to 3 1/2 at some books. The over/under for this game is set at a total of 56 1/2 points at various sports books. Weather is expected to be mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers. The temperature by kickoff time is expected to be in the low 50’s. Arizona State running back Maurice Grice is listed as “out” for Saturday’s game.
Saturday night's Pac-12 conference championship game has a scheduled start time of 7:45 p.m. EST. The game featuring Stanford vs. Arizona State will be televised in standard and hi-definition on ESPN for cable and satellite viewers. In addition, this game will be live streaming online thanks to ESPN’s broadband sports network, WatchESPN.
