Saturday night the No.5 Stanford Cardinal got into a dogfight with the then No.15 Washington Huskies. This game had everything a football fan can ask for, good special teams, great offensive play, and great defense. After a surprising upset last year, the Huskies could not get the win on The Farm. Both teams played their hearts out but the Cardinal come out on top in this one 31-28.
The Washington Huskies had to leave this game with a scar or two. A catch here, a tackle there and they win this game. Huskies quarterback Keith Price made impressed on the nation stage as he threw for 350 yards completing 33 of 48 passes. The fifth year senior Price also threw for 2 touchdowns and an interception. Bishop Sankey will be playing on Sundays next year he had an outstanding game. Sankey carried the football 27 times for 125 yards and 2 touchdowns. Sankey also caught 5 passes for 21 yards. The Washington defense played lights out. They held the Stanford offense to a mere 100 yards passing, 279 total. Truthfully, if the Huskies could have done something about Stanford’s junior receiver Ty Montgomery there is no way they lose this game. It was really that close of a game. Washington had a 4th and 10 in Stanford territory in the last 2 minutes and appeared to complete a pass to Kevin Smith but upon review officials ruled the pass was incomplete.
”It’s unfortunate the game had to come down to a judgment call like that,” Washington Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian said. “That part was unfortunate because it was two good football teams battling and competing with one another and I wish the game would have got won on the field and not in the booth upstairs with some guy that didn’t get to feel the emotion in the hard-fought football game that game was.”
Stanford once again answered questions of their legitimacy around the nation on Saturday. In a game where the passing attack was lackluster, the Cardinal made a great effort to run the football. Kevin Hogan was not great this game by any stretch but he managed the game well enough to win. Hogan only passed for 100 yards completing 12 of 20 passes throwing a touchdown and an interception. Six different players carried the football for the Stanford Cardinal making the total team rushing yards 179. The story of the game was wide receiver Ty Montgomery. Montgomery ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown and had another long return in the third quarter to kill the Washington Huskies momentum. Montgomery gained more yards than his entire offense did by himself; he had 290 all-purpose yards and was the x-factor for the Stanford Cardinal in this game. The Cardinal defense gave up 489 total yards but made some big plays at the right time to win this game.
“We were in a fight and down to the last minute, obviously,” Montgomery said. “We showed that we can stand in there and we can finish a game and win in a fight if we have to.”
Leaving this game you cannot say Washington is all hype. Even in a loss, they were impressive against in my opinion a top 3 team in the country. It came down to Ty Montgomery on special teams and the Stanford rushing attack controlling the line of scrimmage. The Huskies dropped from 15 to 16 in the AP top 25 and Stanford stayed put at 5. All in all both teams showed that they were deserving of their top 25 rankings and let the world know that the Pac 12 north is one of the toughest divisions in college football.

The job of a football referee is to ensure order on the field and to assess penalties as they come about. They are taught to not make a call that can drastically change the outcome of a game unless they are one hundred percent sure of it.
