9th-Ranked Washington Travels to Stanford

Stanford Cardinal Football

Stanford Looks to Knock-off The Huskies

The fans at Stanford Stadium will see the 9th-ranked Washington Huskies and the Stanford Cardinal when they take their seats on Friday. Kick-off is set for 10:30 pm EST. Fox Sports 1 will televise the game.

Oddsmakers have the Huskies as a 7-point favorite. The total is at 49.

Washington’s defense is now statistically the best in the nation. Tonight will tell if it remains there. It probably depend on whether or not it can hem up Bryce Love.

The Stanford star has had at least one 50-yard run in each game he has played this year. He will be looking to continue that trend in Friday’s pivotal Pac-12 game.

Stanford in Must Win Situation for Pac-12 North Title

In their last action, Stanford was a 24-21 loser on the road against the Washington State Cougars. They failed to cover the -1-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (45) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

Washington holds a half-game lead over Washington State and Stanford in the Pac-12 North race.

Love has 11 runs of 50 or more yards this season. His 1,456 total rushing yards rank second nationally behind San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny, who has 1,602. Love also has a superb 9.6 average per carry.

Stanford will be starting redshirt freshman quarterback K.J. Costello for the second straight week. Costello struggled in snowy conditions against Washington State. He was 9-of-20 passing for 105 yards and one interception.

The Stanford defense allows an average of 21.3 points per game. They have been touched up for 42 points in a loss to USC and 34 in a victory over UCLA.

Washington Will Depend on Defense against Stanford

Washington was a 38-3 winner in their most recent outing at home against the Oregon Ducks. They covered the -14-point spread as favorites, while the total score (41) made winners of UNDER bettors. Washington ranks second nationally in scoring defense at 11.1 ppg.  The unit has allowed 10 or fewer points on five occasions.

Holding Love in check will be a large task for Washington. Washington’s D ranks sixth nationally in rushing defense at 91.1 yards per game. The unit also has a nation-best 240.9 total yards allowed per game.

Love is coming off a season-low 69 yards against Washington State. He had a 52-yard touchdown run but was otherwise held to 17 yards on 15 attempts. Love has been bothered by a injured ankle. He missed the Oregon State game two weeks ago.

The Washington defense allowed a 100-yard rusher for the first time all season when Oregon’s Royce Freeman rumbled for 122 yards.

Washington QB Jake Browning fared well against the Stanford defense last season by throwing three touchdown passes in a 44-6 rout of the Cardinal.

Browning doesn’t have a 300-yard game this season. He has passed for 1,907 yards and 16 touchdowns. Browning only has five interceptions. He is currently tied for the school record of 75 career touchdown passes with Keith Price.
