Tough loss to BYU.
What's the goal now, hoping for Rose Bowl still or Holiday/Alamo?

Game Notes
This is a very, very bad matchup for Stanford on paper. The Huskies boast one of the conference's best offenses, with star power at quarterback, running back, wideout and tight end. Quarterback Keith Price has 12 touchdowns to three interceptions at a 56% completion rate, and also has 300 yards rushing. Senior running back Chris Polk is one of the best backs in the country, and has 461 yards rushing and five scores while averaging 6.4 yards per carry. Stanford's rush defense has still been strong this year, but the 223-pound Polk and his 200-pound junior backup Jesse Callier (321 yards, 4 TDs, 5.2 YPC) will present a large challenge.

Washington also has a trio of star receivers in senior James Johnson, junior Kevin Smith, and sophomore Kasen Williams. Smith leads the team with 297 yards and six touchdowns. However, Washington's biggest pass-catching threat, both literally and figuratively, may be star tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins. The 6'7, 263-pound sophomore is a mismatch against any defense, but against Stanford's dreadful pass defense, he may prove to be a nightmare. Stanford reportedly plans to shake things up in their secondary this weekend, with Wayne Lyons moving to corner, Devon Carrington moving over to free safety, and true freshman Scott Mitchell starting at strong safety. Washington's offense will be a formidable first test for the new lineup.

Defensively, the Huskies are young, starting just one senior on defense. Up front, redshirt sophomore Josh Shirley and junior Hau'oli Jamora come off the edge, while defensive tackles Sione Potoa'e and Semisi Tokolahi anchor the run defense. Tokolahi and backups Lawrence Lagafuaina and Danny Shelton are enormous, weighing in at 336, 332, and 343 pounds, respectively. Washington's starting trio at linebacker will be tested heavily by Stanford's running game. Outside linebackers John Timu and Princeton Fuimaono are undersized but agile, while MIKE linebacker Thomas Tutogi is a bruiser at 243 pounds.

In the secondary, the Huskies dearly miss star corner Desmond Trufant, out for the season with a broken vertebrae. Without him Washington suffers a significant dropoff at corner, with Anthony Gobern moving to the #1 slot and redshirt freshman corner/safety James Sample moving into the starting lineup. The Huskies are much better at safety, as senior Nate Fellner and junior Sean Parker are the complete package of speed, tackling and awareness, forming one of the Pac-12's best safety tandems.

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

#15 Stanford @ #10 Washington
Husky Stadium
Seattle, WA
October 13, 2012

Purple Haze
Still no answers for Stanford as Huskies howl in Seattle

SEATTLE, WA - The lineup was different. But the results were the same.

Stanford's Rose Bowl hopes went up in smoke Saturday in Seattle, as the defense gave up four long touchdowns and lost another 4th quarter lead in a 35-24 loss to Washington.

Coach Brian Kudron shuffled his secondary, moving strong safety Devon Carrington to corner and shifting Wayne Lyons from free safety to strong while inserting touted freshman Scott Mitchell into the lineup. The result was Washington QB Keith Price completing 81% of his passes for 326 yards and four touchdowns, and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins catching three touchdowns on 165 yards receiving.

Stanford QB Brett Nottingham completed less than 50% of his passes for the third time in four games and was picked off three times.

The Cardinal certainly can't be accused of playing too conservatively, as it erased a 21-3 lead thanks in part to a fake field goal that went for a touchdown, and another that came on a playaction pass on 4th and 1.

Ultimately though, the defense had no answers for Washington's offense, despite a heroic 16-tackle, 5-sack effort by linebacker Shayne Skov. The run defense played valiantly, but even it couldn't withstand Huskie tailback Chris Polk, who gritted out 161 yards on 37 carries and sealed the game with a 46-yard touchdown with under two minutes remaining.

"We're clearly going through a good deal of adversity," Kudron said after the game. "We've got our backs against the wall now, and at this point it's more than just Xs and Os. Our pride is being called into question, and we're going to see what we're made of now. We're going home next weekend, and I'm confident our home crowd will give us the shot in the arm that we need."

Re: Stanford Cardinal (NCAA 12)

Cardinal lands a trio
Stanford goes national to boost 2013 class

PALO ALTO, CA - Despite the on-field struggles and the fact that the season is already a failure compared to the lofty preseason expectations, Stanford coach Brian Kudron hasn't lost his vigor when it comes to recruiting, and when he and the rest of the Stanford coaches returned to The Farm, those relentless efforts paid off.

The Cardinal's one-man class of Sacramento receiver Gary Harris grew to four today, with a trio of nationally recruited four-star defenders - one at each level of defense - all committing to Stanford.

Defensive end Travis Miller of Atlanta (GA) St. Pius X had offers from the Cardinal, Georgia Tech, Auburn and Nebraska, but had been down to Stanford and the hometown Yellow Jackets for a while now. Going back and forth between the two in recent weeks, Miller finally settled on bringing his talents out west. At 6'5, 261, the 9th-ranked defensive end in the country has ideal size to play in Stanford's 3-4 defense, either at outside linebacker, or at one of the DE spots after adding some weight.

Speaking of ideal size for the 3-4, Dallas (TX) Skyline middle linebacker Matt Turner is a truck, at 6'4, 245 pounds, making him the perfect size for one of the two inside linebacker positions in the 3-4, which requires larger than usual linebackers who are capable of shedding blocks. Turner is the 6th-ranked inside linebacker in the 2013 class, and Stanford was able to barely hold off an A+ visit to TCU two weeks ago to secure his pledge.

Finally, Olney (MD) Good Counsel cornerback AJ Grant, who had been favoring Stanford for a while over Iowa, South Carolina and others, finally made it official, going public with his commitment. Grant fits Stanford coach Brian Kudron's mold of a big, physical corner at 6'2, 196 pounds, making him an asset in run support. Grant's teammate, 4-star running back Garrett Cason, is visiting Stanford this weekend for the Washington State game, and rumors suggest that a decision should be coming shortly after he leaves. Boise State is considered the front runner, with Stanford in hot pursuit.

Additionally, the #1 defender on Stanford's board, 340-pound 4-star Chandler (AZ) Hamilton defensive tackle Andrew Edwards, has finalized his top 5 of Stanford, USC, Oklahoma, Texas and Nebraska, and says he has no timetable for a decision, and could possibly decide at any time.

Game Notes
Despire all the trouble they've been through in recent weeks, Stanford remains a heavy favorite over Washington State, as the Cougars are still scraping the bottom of the 16-team Pac-12. Simply put, something is irreparably broken if the Cardinal doesn't beat Wazzu with relative ease. The Cougars have a solid QB in Jeff Tuel, and a pair of great pass catchers in wideout Marquess Wilson and tight end Skylar Stormo, but besides that, this is a roster largely void of talent and depth. Tuel leads the Cougs in rushing with 302 yards and 3.9 yards a carry. After Stormo's 45 and Wilson's 43, no one on the roster has more than seven catches. After Wilson's 565 and Stormo's 447, wideout Bobby Ratliff is next on the team with 96 yards receiving. Wilson and Stormo have caught 11 of the 12 touchdowns thrown by WSU quarterbacks this season. No offensive line has proven able to slow down Stanford's pass rush this season, and the Cougars' line is probably the worst in the conference.
