Washington Upset by Bryce Love, Stanford; Huskies' Playoff Hopes Take Major Hit

Washington Upset by Bryce Love, Stanford; Huskies' Playoff Hopes Take Major Hit

Love was outstanding in this game, avoiding tackles at the line of scrimmage and displaying shiftiness at the second level.

"He played on one leg and played a phenomenal game".

Are they as good good enough to do it?

THROW IT UP: Stanford will try to be at least a bit more balanced on offense behind sophomore QB K.J. Costello, and he has some big, big targets to throw to.

The Huskies are now 5-2 in the conference and need to beat out Utah and No. 19 Washington State, while Stanford would need to lose to California next week in order for Washington to win the Pac-12 North. Washington's defense is one of the best in the nation, but they've rarely been tested so far this year.

I hate to predict two Stanford losses in a row, but last week's game didn't give me any reason not to.

No. 9 Washington visits Stanford in the only Top 25 college football game on the Friday schedule. But that's the problem; I don't think the Stanford offense is capable of outscoring the Huskies, no matter how well the defense contains them. The Huskies haven't allowed a run longer than 30 yards this year or a pass of at least 40 yards. Stanford can still get a berth to the Pac-12 Championship Game, but it will need some help to make that happen.

The 2017 Pac-12 football season is entering its final month and the races to lock up berths at Levi's® Stadium on Friday, Dec. 1. USC (8-2, 6-1) leads the Pac-12 South.

Stanford will play California next Saturday at home, while Washington will host Utah in Seattle. Costello, despite his struggles last week against Washington State. Other tough matchups include junior punter Jake Bailey against Washington's Dante Pettis, who last week set the NCAA record for punt returns for touchdowns with nine total.

Washington's offense put on a clinic in its first two drives, relying mainly on its running game to march down the field for scoring drives of 81 and 89 yards to take leads of 7-0 in the first quarter and 14-7 early in the second. Stanford - CB Alijah Holder (knee) and OT Walker Little (undisclosed) are out.
