The Stanford Cardinal have had their ups and downs this season, but last week certainly was a down as they lost to Colorado by a score of 16-13. Their statistics were very similar to Colorado in that game and the only thing to really point to as to why they lost that game were the 8 penalties for 80 total yards.
The Washington State Cougars will be looking to avoid making it 3 losses in a row this Saturday as they welcome in the Stanford Cardinal into Martin Stadium. The Cougars are coming off a loss in which they had no success running the ball as they only managed 16 total yards rushing last week against the UCLA Golden Bears.
One of the main things this coaching staff will be working on this week is getting into more 3rd and manageable situations as they were only 3-10 on converting 3rd downs against the Buffaloes.
It may also be in this Stanford sides interest to concentrate more on their running game as their running game was good from an efficiency standpoint, but they only got 25 touches in that last game.
Senior runningback Cameron Scarlett has been solid this year with 5 TD’s and 762 rushing yards and he should get more touches in this game as long as the Cougars don’t jump out to an early lead. That would be a worse scenario than usual as this Stanford team’s starting QB K.J. Costello is listed as questionable for this contest.
Washington State Cougars
Based on Anthony Gordon’s stats I would trust him throwing the ball plenty, but 58 times might be a bit much which was his workload in the Cougars last game.
Obviously in the fourth quarter when you are trailing it makes sense to be throwing the ball a ton, but most of that game was really tight and even though they were not getting much going on the ground they probably would have been better suited to sticking with the run a bit more.
That lack of a running game had the Cougars in plenty of 3rd and long situations and that really showed with their final conversion rate of 3/12. That was very much a down spot for this highly explosive offense and I fully expect Anthony Gordon and his offense to get going again here and have a solid game in front of the home fans.

I am expecting the Cougars to be able to run the ball a bit better here and it should open at least a bit more for the passing attack than was available int heir last game. Overall the Cougars seem a lot better and with this Cardinal program struggling for consistency I have no problem laying the 10.5 with the home team.
