Closing Week 4: Saturday Evening Open Thread

In the day's only matchup of ranked teams, it's an early-season Pac-12 showdown. Big Will Sutton and Arizona State travel to the world's largest collection of Taco Bell architecture to face off against the Stanford Cardinal.

Week 4 of the college football season has reached the evening and prime time stage. Quite possibly the headliner game of the entire day takes place in Palo Alto, where the No. 5 Stanford clashes with No. 23 Arizona State in the day's only matchup of ranked teams. Stanford has been untested in its first two games against San Jose State and Army, while Arizona State is 3-0 and flying high after last week's bizarre finish in a win over Wisconsin. (Pac-12 officiating, FTL!)

In other games of Pac-12 interest tonight, Oregon State goes to San Diego State in a matchup of FBS teams that have lost to FCS teams this year (thank Oski we're not in that group, amirite?!?), Utah renews its Holy War rivalry with BYU, Washington State hosts Idaho, and New Mexico State looks to keep it close at UCLA.
