Why Stanford Will Win

The Cardinal pass defense has been able to hold up just fine despite all the problems in a slew of other spots.

Arizona was able to move the ball through the air – and Stanford won.

Oregon State and Jake Luton were able to throw for 337 yards – and Stanford won.

The problem for the Cardinal is when passing games roll for big plays, not necessarily bulk yards. They’re 0-3 when allowing ten yards or more per pass, and Washington State is averaging 8.2 yards per throw and hasn’t thrown for more than ten yards per pop since the first two games and hasn’t been over eight yards per throw in the last five.

Stanford will let Anthony Gordon dink and dunk as long as it limits the yards after catch.

Washington State’s pass defense isn’t doing a whole lot, but the run defense has been worse. Stanford’s offense has been ultra-flaky, but the return of QB KJ Costello has cranked up the inconsistent passing game over the last two weeks. However …

Why Washington State Will Win

Stanford has way too hard a time scoring.

It was able to light up Arizona, and the running game has been able to averaged five-plus yards per carry over the last two games, but the team isn’t turning yards into points.

The Cardinal have only scored more than 20 points four times, and it’s been a battle just to get there a few touchdowns.

Wazzu might have a whole lot of problems defensively, and the run defense is about to get tested, but Gordon and the offense should be able to move the chains and put up the yards to make Stanford press.

Utah was able to stuff the Washington State offense, but that’s a potential Pac-12 champion that pulled it off. Cal was able to hold the Cougars to 20 points, but that’s an elite defense getting it done on the road.

At home, Wazzu’s offense is averaging was over 50 points per game. Stanford can’t keep up any sort of a pace. However …

What’s Going To Happen

This has to be Cameron Scarlett’s game. The Stanford running back has quietly have a strong year with five games with 90+ yards and with two games of 100+ yards in the last four.

The Cardinal will run well enough to control the clock and the game, KJ Costello will have another strong performance, and it’ll be a huge road win for a team that needs it to stay alive in the hunt for a bowl game.
