Pac 12 Top 10 action kicks off what is an exciting slate here in Week 5 of the College Football season.
#6 Stanford heads into #9 Washington with a lot on the line here as both teams vie not only for a Pac 12 title, but also a spot in the BCS Playoff.
#6 Stanford Cardinal
The schedule has been tough for the #6 team in the nation, but they’ve lived up to every task thus far.
Stanford has wins over Kansas State, USC, and UCLA under their belts with their latest win covering the -3 closing spread in dramatic fashion.
Stanford found the back of the end zone with just 24 seconds to go to take the lead 16-13. On the final play of the game the Cardinal hit QB Julian Rosen and forced a fumble that was ran back for 42 yards to secure a win and the cover.
The focus now shifts to Washington, which proves to be a crucial game in the Pac 12 North standings.
RB Christian McCaffrey is obviously going to be the main focus here as the Cardinal run the offense through the Heisman candidate. McCaffrey has rushed for over 100 yards in all 3 contests, with the latest being a 138 yard performance.
Expect Washington to stack the box here and really force QB Ryan Burns to beat them. Burns has 402 yards passing this season and has made every big play he’s been asked too.
That includes the 8 yard TD pass to grab the lead last week.
#9 Washington Huskies
The Washington Huskies had little competition through their first 3 games, but got a real test against the Arizona Wildcats last week.
It took them until overtime, but it was the Huskies who prevailed 35-28 to move to 4-0 and 1-0 in Pac 12 play.
Washington has been excellent on both sides of the ball as they have had no problem scoring and stopping the opposition. The Huskies are averaging 45.8 points per game while conceding just 14.5.
They’ve been an extremely balanced offense as they average 250 pass yards per game while rushing for 196.
QB Jake Browning has really been the spark plug to this offense. Browning has compiled 904 yards through the air while tossing 14 touchdowns to just 2 interceptions.
The key here will be to watch the defensive front for the Huskies. Washington has allowed 145.5 rush yards per game and will obviously see the best RB they’ve seen up until this point.
Look for the Huskies to really try to get a push and slow McCaffrey down as they know he’ll get plenty of touches.
