Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Where can you find the ASU-Stanford game? What time is kickoff? What's the point spread? All that information and more listed below.

Kickoff: 4:00 P.M. MST/ 7 P.M. EST

Location: Stanford Stadium

Point Spread: Stanford (-6.5)

TV: Fox (Gus Johnson, Charles Davis)

Radio: 92.3 KTAR FM (Tim Healey, Jeff Van Raaphorst)/ 1330 AM The Blaze (Kerry Crowley)

Weather Forecast: 70 degrees with 59 percent humidity and 30 percent chance of rain.

Story lines to watch for Arizona State: Coach Todd Graham's team could break the twitter-verse by pulling off the upset over No. 5 Stanford. The Sun Devils haven't beaten any top ten opponents since 2002, going 0-18 since then. Taylor Kelly, Will Sutton and more want to prove themselves as legitimate Pac-12 contenders, and defeating Stanford would accomplish their goal.

Experts believe the game should be fairly close, yet few pick ASU to come out victorious. Todd Graham said the final outcome could come down to "one possession, or even 12 inches." In contests decided by seven or less under his tutelage, the Maroon and Gold are 2-1.

Story lines to watch for Stanford: David Shaw's team commands respect, but it hasn't been tested by any formidable opponents. In the early contests, Stanford appears more vulnerable than expected, therefore the AP poll moved the Cardinal down to fifth from fourth. The goal remains the same, as the squad from Northern California strives to win the national title and string together back-to-back Pac-12 championships.

Quarterback Kevin Hogan's running ability may be showcased, possessing impressive pocket presence to break away toward the outside of the blitz-oriented ASU defense. Stanford's Shayne Skov and Trent Murphy lead arguably the best defense in the country, and watching them against Taylor Kelly's high powered offense will be entertaining.

Fan question: What's your prediction, can ASU finally get over the hump?
