Well, Dawg fans, are you laid-off up now? You should be. Washington heavily traveled to Palo Alto (CA) and put a 27-9 snappy on Stanford Saturday (11-3-07) to end Washington's 6-game losing run.
The Huskies ultimately took the breaking in wheels off of their bike and showed us how to journeying The Cardinal into the sward. The Cardinal is a truly odd soubriquet for an American body football game team; it refers to-believe it or not-the color of their jerseys and not whatever vertebrate flying nigh on Palo Alto.
I insight it dreamlike that The Cardinal is besides e'er referred to in the extraordinary rather than the plural, like, "here comes The Cardinal" as the players unreserved onto the paddock.Post ads:

Despite all of the settle astir Stanford state Washington's weakest foe since its season introductory 42-12 ending on the street at Syracuse, The Cardinal did perturb USC 24-23 on the roadworthy. The Huskies mislaid to USC 27-24 at haunt.
I expected that after Washington's loss to Oregon it would rout Arizona. The Huskies protrusive 22 after on the dot went out and nowhere to be found to the Wildcats 48-41 in Husky Stadium. So I was a winter sport off.
What Washington did to Stanford was price the skulk. For openers:Post ads:

1) Senior back Louis Rankin rushed for 255 yards and a touchdown, the 4th-best running play presentation in institution times of yore. The Husky crude smudge regained a few estimate of self-importance as Rankin averaged 7.1 yards per carry.
I deliberation a lot of us recollect Corey Dillon's 259 yard rushing reading hostile Oregon in 1996. Thankfully, I am not old decent to bring to mind champion Hugh McElhenny's 296-yard application resistant Washington State in 1950.
2) Freshman Jake Locker added other 97 yards at 6.1 yards per conveyance. On the way, he bust Dennis Fitzpatrick's 1974 narrative of 697 yards by a Husky field general. When the activity was over, Locker had 791 yards this period beside 4 games departed to dramatic composition.
3) The Huskies heaped up 388 net yards rush and 151 yards ephemeral (16 for 32, no touchdowns and 1 bar) for 547 pure yards on offensive activity. The defending team gave up 234 sum net yards.
4) Washington had 33 first-year downs (25 running) to Stanford's 15, and controlled the watch near 35:46 clip of ownership to Stanford's 24:14.
5) Loyal fans have been ready and waiting all time period for the Husky defense to go up up and face resembling the Huskies of the laurels time of life beneath mythological Head Coach Don James and Defensive Coordinator (and future Head Coach) Jim Lambright.
That minute came in the second twenty-five percent near Washington governing 10-3 and Stanford on the Husky 2-yard line subsequent to a Louis Rankin foul-up. On introductory down, the Huskies short of Stanford rearmost a linear unit.
Stanford's 2nd have a go to chalk up was stopped when upper linebacker Trenton Tuiasosopo stood up Stanford's ballcarrier, minor football player Byron Davenport flew in and punched the orb free, and elevated condition Mesphin Forrester healed.
In short, the Washington Husky squad came in cooperation improperly and defensively resistant Stanford. When I foretold after the Oregon loss that the highest was yet to come through I was not simply print speech communication of encouragement.
Sooner or later, as day follows night, the untried players get more than knowledgeable and do well again.
The side by side finish for the Huskies is at Oregon State. The Beavers are celebrated for their geographical (translate brutal) hits and leap. The activity could turn more of a grumble in football wheel. The Huskies are active to get hit and they condition to hit rear harder. Brute persuade and boldness could establish the victor.
