Where is the UW vs Stanford write up?
Lets hear what happened.
check the week 5 thread.
Bruce Grumpy Jerk strikes again!!!!
Stanford 28 - Washington 24
In a matchup of two top 10 teams, Stanford headed up to Seattle to take on the Huskies.
After exchanging punts, Stanford struck first, scoring from 3 yards out by new feature back Big Daddy Wilkerson.
Using a nice mix of runs and passing, Washington was able to answer just after the second quarter began on a 17 yard run by HB Cooper. After coming up with a big 3rd down stop, however, Washington's punt returned tried to eek out a few extra yards and coughed the ball up. Stanford recovered and got tackled just inside the Washington 10. Wilkerson once again pounded the rock into the end zone from a yard out.
The rest of the possession in the half belonged to Washington. On several occasions Stanford looked like they would force them to punt, only to have Washington make a big play and keep the drive going. With 16 seconds left, Washington tied it up 14-14 going into the half.
With the second half just under way, Stanford safety Howell blitzed off the corner catching Husky QB Montana unaware. Howell drilled Montana, jarring the ball loose, and it was picked up by DE Mauro. He returned it 37 yards for a TD and a Stanford lead.
Washington would hold the ball for most of the rest of the quarter. After another 3 minute, dink and dunk drive, FB Gooden was able to punch the ball in. A three and out by Stanford gave Washington the ball again - they wouldn't give it up until just after the fourth quarter had started, kicking a field goal to go up 24-21.
With their backs against the walls, a well rested Stanford offense marched down field. The play of the game came inside 4 minutes left. On a big 3rd and 5 from the 30, QB Andrew Luck had no receivers open and was sacked for a 14 yard loss. Outside of their kickers range and likely unable to stop Washington before the game ran out, Stanford went for it.
Luck dropped back, saw WR Terrell open for a split second and rifled a bullseye in coverage to pickup the first down. Three big Wilkerson runs later and Stanford was up 28-24.
But there was still time on the clock. Washington calmly started moving the ball, a gassed Stanford unable to either get to Montana or keep his receivers from coming down with the ball.
However, Washington perhaps got a little greedy and went for the game on one play. All-World receiver Kearse was locked in man coverage down the sideline, but CB Bademosi was able to intercept it in the end zone.
A few runs and kneels later and the game was over.
gg helli. hopefully a few recruits were watching the game.
