People would have believed you for saying Washington would win. When it’s 44-6, however, that’s an ass-whooping and you all know it.
Christian McCaffrey did bupkis against Washington’s front seven, with just 49 rushing yards and no scores. His Heisman hopes are (probably) mortally wounded, and Stanford’s playoff hopes took a big hit. All around, just a terrible day for the Cardinal.
Not so for the Huskies, who justified their high ranking and solidified their stay in the top ten. They are currently by far the best team in the Pac-12, and winning the North looks like cake at this point.
