Junior quarterback Josh Nunes is playing “safe” football for Stanford. He can manage the game properly but he does have some issue with turning over the ball. This could be a big problem on the national stage against a Washington team eager to make an impact in the conference.
Washington was discarded against LSU earlier in the season so they will be easily overlooked by Stanford as the head into this game. Washington quarterback Keith Price completed 17-of-36 passes for 157 yards against the Tigers, and they have a much tougher defense than the Cardinal. The Cardinal have performed well in this series which is yet another reason to overlook this game, but don’t be surprised if the Huskies win this game.
The Huskies came into this game well-rested and are 5-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games following a bye week. The Huskies are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 games on field turf and 6-2 ATS in the last eight games overall.
The Cardinal is the better team, but everything in this game sets up for the road team to lay an egg and the Huskies pull off the upset.
