Heisman candidate Bryce Love has carried the Cardinal offense with 1,456 yards and 12 touchdowns while averaging 9.6 yards a carry.
It was an impressive win for Stanford and put a serious dent in the Playoff hopes of every Pac-12 team. Love has 10 runs of at least 50 yards this season, including at least one in every game he has played. The defense has been solid, so I don't think Jake Browning & Co. will put points on the board almost as quickly or effectively as last season's game in Seattle, and I'm confident they'll give the offense a good chance to win.
Stanford has chose to stick with redshirt freshman QB, K.J.
The offense turned in big plays through the air and on the ground throughout the night, and only a missed field goal and late "goal line stand" from Oregon's defense kept the final margin from creeping into the 40s for a second consecutive year.
I hate to predict two Stanford losses in a row, but last week's game didn't give me any reason not to. He aggravated it again Friday against the Huskies, but it didn't seem to matter against the nation's top-ranked defense. Get the app and get the game.
The thought of Washington repeating last year's run to the College Football Playoff wasn't all that outlandish entering Friday night's game at Stanford.
Love hasn't completed a full practice in over a month due to an ankle injury. Cardinal S Justin Reid leads Pac-12 and ranks second nationally with five INTs. Expect him to be a force against junior quarterback Jake Browning and the Washington offense, which will be hard to beat as Browning has 75 career touchdown passes tying Washington's all time record.
Stanford will play California next Saturday at home, while Washington will host Utah in Seattle. They're allowing just 240.9 yards per game and 11.1 points. Stanford - CB Alijah Holder (knee) and OT Walker Little (undisclosed) are out.
Washington vs. Stanford news:I mean, it was sheer pandemonium in the stadium for at least 3 or 4 minutes after Pettis broke the record.
