About the Stanford Cardinals (3-0)

The final score was misleading at it took more than 59 minutes and 30 seconds for Stanford to find the end zone. But two touchdowns in the final 24 seconds gave them their ninth straight win over the Bruins to complete the regular-season Los Angeles. sweep (USC & UCLA). UCLA’s defense gave the Cardinal all it could handle, so credit Ryan Burns for looking like a vet on that final drive (5-8, 66 yards, TD). Going into this game the one thing to watch is that the Cardinals have beaten the Huskies three times in a row because they were physically superior, most notably at the line of scrimmage.  Has Washington caught up to Stanford at the line of scrimmage?

About the Washington Huskies (4-0)

Is Washington back? We’ve been waiting for three weeks to see what happens when a team actually punches back at the Huskies. Arizona definitely punched back and Washington found a way to win. However, Washington’s struggles against Arizona might support the popular “overrated” chant. The Huskies yielded far too many yards rushing, particularly to Wildcats quarterback Brandon Dawkins. The Huskies had four trips inside the Wildcats’ 30-yard line that yielded a total of zero points and it is drives like this that can give ammo to those who think the Huskies are not ready to take over the PAC12 North from Stanford.

Stanford vs Washington Prediction

The conference’s highest ranked teams at present and two teams that are in the hunt for a trip to the College Football Playoff, No. 7 Stanford and No. 10 Washington will play a Friday night game in Washington on ESPN. Stanford has dominated the series lately going 4-1 straight up against the Huskies in Washington.

This is the chance that Chris Petersen has been waiting for. He has a team that can make it to the college football playoffs if he can run the table. Remember all of those teams he had at Boise State and what they managed to do. He is one of the top “big game” coaches in football. Stanford has been a top team since Jim Harbaugh roamed the sidelines and have continued to dominate under David Shaw. Who will dominate Friday?

The Cardinals got a 22-13 victory over UCLA but two late touchdowns really made the score misleading. This years Stanford team has some real offensive problems despite having Christian McCaffrey returning for another Heisman Trophy run. UCLA was able to do something that most teams haven’t over the last decade and that was match up against the Stanford offensive line and get a stalemate. Stanford quarterback Ryan Burns did not impress me despite the late game heroics. The key number in this game is 3. As long as Washington is -3 or less my money is on the Huskies. If the line goes over 3 then I will take Washington on the money line.
