WHAT’S AT STAKE?
Washington comes in with the second-longest winning streak in the nation at 14 games after escaping with a 15-7 win over Arizona State last week. The Huskies will look for a more convincing win in the last game before the release of the first CFP rankings. Stanford looks to bounce back from a lopsided loss to UCLA.
Washington run game vs Stanford run defense. The Huskies were held to 13 yards on 13 carries last week — for their worst rushing performance since at least 1996. They will look to get back on track against a Cardinal defense that is allowing 150 yards rushing per game this season.
