The Stanford Cardinal look to win their sixth straight game and remain unbeaten at home. Kevin Hogan is completing 65.9 percent of his passes for 1,286 yards, 12 touchdowns and three interceptions. Hogan has two or more touchdown passes in five straight games. Michael Rector and Austin Hooper have combined for 460 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Devon Cajuste has 15 receptions. The Stanford Cardinal ground game is averaging 226.3 yards per contest, and Christian McCaffrey leads the way with 844 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Stanford is allowing 21.7 points and 357.3 yards per game. Blake Martinez leads the Cardinal with 70 tackles, Peter Kalambayi has 2.5 sacks and Ronnie Harris has nine pass deflections. Kevin Anderson and Noor Davis are questionable.
The Huskies are 17-42-2 ATS in their last 61 games in October and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Cardinal are 36-16 ATS in their last 52 home games and 44-21-1 ATS in their last 66 games overall. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
Stanford has found a groove since losing the season opener and that Cardinal defense should be able to keep Washington in check. This is just a bad game for the Huskies who are comning off a tough loss. I look for the Cardinal to beat up Washington in this game.
