KICKOFF: 9 a.m. at Michie Stadium (capacity: 38,000)

TV: CBS Sports Network (Comcast channel 418 in the Bay Area)

RADIO: 1050-AM

SERIES HISTORY: Tied 5-5. ... The schools haven't met since Army's 17-13 victory at Stanford Stadium in 1979.

STORYLINES: For fifth-ranked Stanford, this is the last chance to correct early-season glitches before embarking upon nine consecutive weeks of conference play. ... Look for the Cardinal to use as many as three quarterbacks: first-teamer Kevin Hogan, who is 6-0 as a starter; second-stringer Evan Crower, who will play in a blowout (and might get a series or two regardless of the score); and third-stringer Dallas Lloyd, whose mobility has value in the spread option. ... Army coach Rich Ellerson spent eight years at Cal Poly before moving to West Point in 2009.

INJURY UPDATE: Stanford FB Ryan Hewitt (bruised knee) is questionable.

MATCHUP TO WATCH: Stanford's offensive line vs. Army's defensive line. The Cardinal averages 305 pounds per man while Army's five-man front averages 235 pounds per player. ... The Black Knights will attempt to offset their size disadvantage with quickness, a difficult task over the course of four quarters that will be even tougher when Stanford uses its Jumbo formation with additional linemen. The Cardinal should wear down Army as the game unfolds. ... In case it's relevant: Stanford's single-game record for rushing yards is 446, set two years ago against Washington.

STATS THAT MATTER: Stanford held San Jose State to 35 yards rushing. Army, which uses the triple option, averages 329 yards per game on the ground. ... The Cardinal is 3-3 in games played in the eastern time zone since 2008. ... Stanford is 10-10 all-time against the service academies.
