Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. 15 Washington 31-28 on Saturday night in a matchup of unbeaten Pac-12 North teams.
Montgomery returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a TD and caught a 34-yard pass for another score to put the Cardinal (5-0, 3-0) in control from the start and keep them there. Stanford led from wire-to-wire while winning its 13th straight game and 12th in a row at home, though Washington never went away.
Keith Price threw for 350 yards and two touchdowns and nearly led the Huskies (4-1, 1-1) back. But officials overturned Price's completed pass on fourth down in the final minutes to end Washington's rally.
Price completed 33 of 48 passes with one interception, and Bishop Sankey ran for 125 yards and two scores in an impressive - though, at times, mistake-filled - performance against the defending Pac-12 and Rose Bowl champions.
In the end, Washington came up at least one bounce short.
