The Sun Devils (6-2) have used seven different lineups in eight matches this season, with Juniors Kady Pooler and Rebecca Rankin seeing the most variety, playing in three different spots and compiling a combined 10-4 record.
The Wildcats (9-2) have faced Stanford 45 times and have won only once, on February 21, 1987. Last season, Arizona fell to Stanford in Palo Alto, 6-1.
