On Saturday night, the Washington Huskies will invade Stanford territory to take on the Cardinal in Palo Alto. After a deflating loss against the Huskies last year at CenturyLink Field, Stanford will have a bitter taste in their mouth. Don’t think for one second that the Cardinal will let Washington walk into their own house and steam roll them just like the Huskies did last year.
Josh Nunes started at quarterback for Stanford last year and there is a reason he won’t be there again this time around. A much more skilled and smarter Kevin Hogan, who is the top ranked passer in the Pac-12, will face the Huskies. An already threatening offense, due to the power run game, just got even more dangerous with Hogan. He adds an element to the offense that Nunes did not: speed and mobility. He also is a far better passer than Nunes was so the Huskies can’t load eight men in the box against the Cardinal this year as they try to stop the run. If they choose to do so, Hogan will burn the Huskies over the top and will try and find elite targets in Devon Cajuste and Ty Montgomery.no comments
