Will having two weeks off rejuvenate a banged up Stanford team that hasn’t won since beating Oregon at the beginning of the month and has just that won win since beating Vanderbilt on September 18th.

Neither team does everything quite right, and they both have massive flaws to expose, but Washington’s lack of a consistent offense will shine through in the fourth quarter.
