This Saturday, there will be a college football matchup between two Pac-12 teams as the Washington Huskies travel to Stanford Stadium to take on the Stanford Cardinal. Washington enters this game with a 3-4 record after beating Arizona on the road by five points in its last game while Stanford enters this game with a 3-4 record after losing to Washington State on the road by three points in its last game. This game will be taking place at 10:30 P.M. EST.

 

Washington Looks To Get Back To .500

The Washington Huskies have been a disappointment this season as they have lost four of their first seven games. On the bright side, Washington enters this game on a bit of a high note after beating Arizona on the road by five points in its last game. In that game, Washington's defense was fantastic as it allowed just 16 points while forcing the opposition into committing two turnovers. Now, the Huskies will be looking to get back to .500 with another conference road game up next on Saturday. However, Washington has lost two of its first three road games this season as it has looked quite vulnerable in opposing stadiums.

 

Leading the Huskies offensively is freshman quarterback Dylan Morris who has looked mediocre this season as he has recorded 1,663 passing yards and ten passing touchdowns. However, he has also thrown eight interceptions as he has struggled with his ball security up to this point.

 

Following the victory against Arizona, Washington head coach Jimmy Lake discussed the health of defensive back Alex Cook.

"Still some tests, but that's the best possible news with him being able to come back with us."

 

Stanford Looks To Get Back On Track

The Stanford Cardinal have been playing some terrible football lately as they have lost three of their last four games including a three-point road loss against the Washington State Cougars in their last game. In that game, Stanford's defense struggled as it allowed 34 points while letting the opposition record 389 yards. However, that lackluster defensive performance was not surprising at all since the Cardinal are allowing 28.0 points per game. Now, Stanford will be looking to get back on track with a conference home game up next on Saturday. However, the Cardinal have a losing record in conference play up to this point as they have struggled against their rivals.

 

Leading the Cardinal offensively is sophomore quarterback Tanner McKee who has looked extremely comfortable this season as he has recorded 1,722 passing yards and 14 passing touchdowns. In addition, he has recorded three rushing touchdowns as he has been effective in numerous ways.

Following the loss to Washington State, Stanford head coach David Shaw praised his team's effort in the second half.

"Our guys showed great resilience in the second half. We played so well in the second half on defense, but we gave up explosive plays, and we gave up the opportunity to win the game."
