Stanford stored tempo with No. 5 Washington’s high-octane offense and recorded a number of key defensive takeaways, but finally the Cardinal fell in need of pulling off the upset on Oct. 28. With 495 complete yards, the Cardinal offense outgained the Huskies whereas the protection held the Huskies offense to their second-fewest first-half yards this season. Sophomore quarterback Ashton Daniels matched Washington’s Heisman hopeful Michael Penix Jr. score-for-score and led Stanford to path by solely two factors with 6:46 to play. Nevertheless, Washington capitalized on a late failed fourth-down trick play to flee with the win, maintaining their CFP hopes alive in what could possibly be their last sport towards Stanford for a while.
