Last Season

Washington lost at Stanford 30-22 in 2017. Bryce Love rushed 30 times for 166 yards and three scores. The Huskies started fast with touchdown runs by Myles Gaskin on the first two drives but stalled after that. UW used an up-tempo offense to drive 88 and 89 yards for touchdowns on their first two drives before getting stopped on a fourth-and-1 from the Stanford 19 on the third possession. Washington had only two first downs on the next five drives.

Over 88 all-time meetings, Washington and Stanford are even at 42-42-4. After winning eight straight vs. Stanford from 1959 to 1966, the Huskies lost 10 in a row from 1967 to 1976. Since that 1976 loss, Washington has gone 23-12 against the Cardinal. 

Why Bet on Stanford?

The Cardinal lost for the third time in four games last Saturday, blowing a 14-point lead in a 41-38 loss to Washington State. Down 38-31, K.J. Costello kept Stanford within striking distance, throwing a 25-yard touchdown pass to JJ Arcega-Whiteside to even the game at 38-38 with 1:25 remaining. Costello finished with 323 passing yards and four touchdowns, becoming the first Cardinal quarterback to record multiple four-touchdown games in a season since Andrew Luck in 2011.

Costello ranks among the Top 20 nationally in completion percentage (19th), passing efficiency (20th), passing touchdowns (18th), passing yards (16th), passing yards per game (17th) and yards per attempt (20th). He leads the Pac-12 in efficiency (155.9) and is second in the conference in passing yards (2,165) and yards per attempt (8.52).

Arcega-Whiteside continued his torrid play, hauling in a career-high 10 receptions for 111 yards and two touchdowns. Arcega-Whiteside, who moved into 17th place in school history with 1,792 career receiving yards, is the first Cardinal player with 11 touchdown catches in a season since 1980.

Stanford’s three losses this season have come against the AP’s No. 3, No. 10 and No. 16th-ranked teams in the nation (Notre Dame, Utah and Washington State). Those three teams have a combined record of 21-3 (.875) this season—and one of those losses was head-to-head (Washington State over Utah). Stanford is 5-0 this season when forcing at least one turnover, and 0-3 when not forcing a turnover. 

Why Bet on Washington?

The Huskies were preseason Pac-12 favorites but lost for the second time in three games last week, 12-10 at Cal. The Huskies (6-3, 4-2) entered the day with a half-game lead over Washington State and Stanford but fell to second place despite not allowing an offensive touchdown.

Washington starting quarterback Jake Browning threw his 90th career touchdown pass in the first quarter but was benched late in the third after the Huskies went three-and-out on their second drive of the second half. After the Huskies scored a touchdown on their opening drive, they managed just 107 yards on the next five drives combined — without scoring — before Chris Petersen went to Jake Haener, a redshirt freshman. Cal’s Evan Weaver intercepted Haener on his second pass attempt and returned it for a touchdown, which proved to be the game’s winning score. Browning returned after two series. He completed 11 of 21 passes for 148 yards.

Stanford at California should be a close one.

A four-year starter who finished sixth in Heisman Trophy voting in 2016, Browning has not come close to matching that season’s performance — when the Huskies advanced to the College Football Playoff — in either of the past two seasons. Under the direction of first-year offensive coordinator Bush Hamdan this year, Browning has completed 64.1 percent of his passes with 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Browning will start here.

Since 1990, UW has rushed for 200 yards in a game 115 times. The Huskies’ record stands at 98-16-1 (.856) in those contests. Since 1995, UW is 73-13-1 (.845) when rushing for 200 yards.

UW enters Stanford week ranked No. 8 in scoring defense (15.2), No. 12 in total defense (301.2), No. 13 in passing yards allowed (171.7), and No. 18 in third-down conversions (.467). UW’s defense has allowed just five scrimmage plays of 30 or more yards and just one of 40 or more – leading the nation in both categories.
