Line: Stanford -7

Stanford has recorded two straight Pac-10 teams the last two weeks. Both wins were at Stanford and they have only come by a combined 12 points. Washington is coming off a pouncing at Arizona 44-14. This team has yet to record two straight wins or two straight loses.

Stats to consider:

Stanford Cardinals:

  • The Cardinals are 6-1 with a 3-1 Pac-10 record.
  • They are 2-1 on the road with the one loss coming at the hands of Oregon 52-31.
  • Points against per game: 24.3 (60th)
  • Points for per game: 42.6 (5th)
  • Passing yards a game: 250.4  (39th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 216 (15th)

Washington Huskies:

  • The Huskies are 3-4 on the season with a 2-2 Pac-10 record.
  • They are 2-2 at home.
  • Points against per game: 33.1 (102nd)
  • Points for per game: 24.9 (76th)
  • Passing yards a game: 232.4 (50th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 162.1 (50th)

What to watch for:

  • Look for Stanford’s high powered offense vs the poor Washington defense. Junior QB Andrew Luck is still in the Heisman hunt and has 1,728 yards 19 TDs and 5 Ints. Luck also has 253 rushing yards with another 2 TDs.
  • The Cardinal’s rushing game is lead by Sophomore RB Stephan Taylor who has 624 yards and 5 TDs. Taylor had 142 yards and 2 TDs last week in a win vs Washington State.
  • The game will come down to the health of Huskies QB Jake Locker. Locker has some sore ribs, but there is no doubt he will be playing. Locker has 1,614 yards 14 TDs and 4 Ints. Locker was the preseason favorite to be the #1 pick in the draft.
  • Chris Polk leads the Huskies ground game with 636 yards and 4 TDs.

The Huskies are no pushover making this a tough football pick. I still like how good this Stanford offense is. They did struggle handling Washington State last week, but that show how competitive the Pac-10 is. The game will ride on how well Jake Locker can play with his hurt ribs.
