Welcome to ESPN’s College Gameday, Live from Palo Alto, California; the site of this week’s game of the week between the Washington Huskies and the Stanford Cardinal. I’m Chris Fowler and I’ll be joined by Herbie and the Coach to discuss this week’s News around the world of college football as well as preview this week’s great slate of action on the gridiron. We start here in Palo Alto where Gameday is this week. Let’s welcome Erin Andrews with the latest on the Game of the Week between the Huskies and the Cardinal. “This is our first look at the Stanford Cardinal this season. The Cardinal have been slipping by each and every week so far this season, and the Huskies are no pushover. Probable first-overall pick Andrew Luck has been hot and cold all year, and has been overshadowed by the play of backfield-mate Stephan Taylor. But, having more than one playmaker should be a luxury rather than a curse for Luck and the Cardinal. The Washington Huskies have quickly rebuilt into a Pac-12 contender under the leadership of Steve Sarkisian. Replacing Jake Locker is a difficult task, but with the talented Chris Polk in the backfield, Washington has looked strong thus far. But, we’ll just have to wait until tonight to see whether Polk will be enough for the Huskies to pull off the upset.” Players to WatchFor Washington: RB Chris Polk For Stanford: QB Andrew Luck Thanks Erin; Now it’s time to take a look at this season’s Heisman race.
