Welcome Back, Husky Football – Washington Takes Off the Training Wheels and Thumps Stanford 27-9

All things considered, Dawg fans, would you say you are started up at this point? You ought to be. Washington made a trip to Palo Alto (CA) and put a 27-9 whipping on Stanford Saturday (11-3-07) to end Washington’s 6-game losing streak.

The Huskies at long last progressed toward the next level of their bike and told us the best way to ride The Cardinal into the turf. The Cardinal is a truly odd moniker for an American school football crew; it alludes to-in all honesty the shade of their shirts and not some bird zooming around Palo Alto.

I think that it is odd that The Cardinal is likewise consistently alluded to in the solitary rather than the plural, as, “here comes The Cardinal” as the players surge onto the field.

Regardless of all of the discussion about Stanford being Washington’s most vulnerable rival since its season opening 42-12 triumph out and about at Syracuse, The Cardinal surprise USC 24-23 out and about. The Huskies lost to USC 27-24 at home.

I anticipated that later Washington’s misfortune to Oregon it would beat Arizona. The Huskies beginning 22 then, at that point, instantly went out and lost to the Wildcats 48-41 in Husky Stadium. So I was a game off.

I think a ton of us recollect Corey Dillon’s 259 yard hurrying execution against Oregon in 1996. Fortunately, I am not mature enough to recall record-holder Hugh McElhenny’s 296-yard exertion against Washington State in 1950.

2) Freshman Jake Locker added one more 97 yards at 6.1 yards per convey. On the way, he broke Dennis Fitzpatrick’s 1974 record of 697 yards by a Husky quarterback. At the point when the game was finished, Locker had 791 yards this season with 4 games left to play.

3) The Huskies stacked up 388 net yards hurrying and 151 yards passing (16 for 32, no scores and 1 interference) for 547 absolute yards on offense. The safeguard surrendered 234 all out net yards.

5) Loyal fans have been standing by the entire season for the Husky protection to ascend and seem as though the Huskies of the greatness years under amazing Head Coach Don James and Defensive Coordinator (and later Head Coach) Jim Lambright.

That second came in the second quarter with Washington driving 10-3 and Stanford on the Husky 2-yard line following a Louis Rankin bobble. On first down, the Huskies pushed Stanford back a yard.

Stanford’s second endeavor to score was halted when senior linebacker Trenton Tuiasosopo stood up Stanford’s ballcarrier, junior cornerback Byron Davenport flew in and punched the ball free, and senior security Mesphin Forrester recuperated.
