Washington (4-1) vs. Stanford (2-3) Game Preview

Why Stanford Will Win

Now Davis Mills has settled in.

It stinks that starting quarterback KJ Costello hasn’t been healthy since taking a massive shot in the opener against Northwestern, but Mills has been able to fill in and keep the offense going. Last week against Oregon State, he hit 72% of his passes for 245 yards and three scores with no picks.

It might have been against Oregon State, but at least the new starter has looked and played the part. And now at home with the pressure off – Washington is supposed to roll – he can let it rip.

The Huskies aren’t a rock against the decent passing teams – allowing 200 yards or more three times – and Mills needs to be sharp from the start.

Stanford’s D has had its issues, but it’s been able to get into the backfield, and it hasn’t been bad against the run, allowing fewer than four yards per carry so far.

Control the time of possession – Stanford is tenth in the nation – get the D off the field, and slow the game down. Do all that, and the Cardinal can keep this close.

Why Washington Will Win

The Cardinal run defense has been solid, but the pass defense has been a big, big problem.

That run D has allowed two touchdowns or more in three of the last four games, and despite the good pass rush, the secondary is getting ripped apart. Opposing quarterbacks have hit 75% of their passes over the last four games with 11 touchdowns and no picks – and now it’s Jacob Eason’s turn to have a little fun.

The Georgia transfer isn’t getting enough national attention for being outstanding. He’s shown the ability to take over with a few big plays, and he’s shown the ability to play within the framework of the game and be a game manager.

He’s been accurate, there have only been two picks, and he has shown he can be a winner and leader of a Pac-12 championship-caliber team. Against Stanford’s secondary, he should be able to bomb away, and then allow the defense to take over from there.

“Go to the bank!” Today’s top pick of the day just released

What’s Going To Happen

Stanford’s defense will do just enough to keep this from going off the rails, but the Washington offense will be methodical and opportunistic on the way to a decent road win. It might not be the dangerous game it might have seemed like it would be before the season, but it’ll still be a good, business-like victory
