Last Week


The Cardinal saw their hopes for a PAC-12 North division title disappear in a 41-38 loss to Washington State. Stanford’s offense was top shelf and moved the ball effectively in the first half. The second half was a different story, all they could muster was 10 points. On the defensive side of the ball, Stanford had few answers to the Air Raid.

  • QB K.J. Costello – 34/43, 323 yards, 4 TDs.
  • RB Bryce Love – 6 carries, 71 yards.
  • WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside – 10 catches, 111 yards, 2 TDs.
  • WR Kaden Smith – 9 catches, 112 yards, 1 TD.
  • CB Alijah Holder and LB Sean Barton – 10 tackles each.


In a backbreaking loss, Washington was on the wrong end of a 12-10 score at Cal, despite not allowing the Bears an offensive touchdown. The Huskies defense was stout allowing only 242 yards of offense to California, who could do no better than a pair of field goals. UW’s offense, however, was mired in a funk all day. At one point in the second half, senior quarterback Jake Browning was benched in favor of freshman Jake Haener. The younger QB threw a pick-six and the rest is history.

More from Washington Huskies Football

  • QB Jake Browning – 11/24, 148 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
  • RB Kamari Pleasant – 12 carries, 62 yards.
  • WR Ty Jones – 3 receptions, 50 yards, 1 TD.
  • LB Ben Burr-Kirven – 14 tackles, 1 sack, 2 tackles for loss, 1 pass defended.
  • DL Greg Gaines – 10 tackles, 1 sack, 2 tackles for loss.

This Week

Both teams took a knockout punch last time out. Whichever one can pick themselves off the canvas and shake off the cobwebs quickest will win. Something tells me that it will be Washington. While both teams are playing for the same thing, two individuals from UW have plenty on the line.

This is a money game for Jake Browning. He MUST show the NFL scouts something today about both his talent and character. If he has another game as he had against Colorado and Cal, he can kiss the draft goodbye. Today is also big for head coach Chris Petersen. He’s got to find a way to rally his troops and quiet the naysayers.

dark. Next. Our football predictions for November 3-4

10 points is a big spread for a team that has been struggling to score. I like UW in this one, covering will be close.
