STANFORD, Calif. — What seemed like Stanford’s coming out party this season — and it still might have been — ended with players feeling distraught and disappointed in the locker room.

Tyler Gaffney ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns, Anthony Wilkerson added 68 yards and another score, and No. 5 Stanford started strong and struggled late in a 42-28 victory over No. 23 Arizona State on Saturday night in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.

The defending conference champions controlled every facet of the game to turn the only matchup between ranked opponents this week into a lead of 29-0 at halftime and 39-7 through three quarters. The Cardinal (3-0, 1-0) scored twice in the air and three times on the ground, forced two interceptions, blocked two punts, tallied 10 tackles for loss and recorded three sacks.
