No. 13 Stanford (1-0) rode the shoulders of an explosive offensive playmaker, who posted 200-plus yards and entered his name into the early-season Heisman discussion, en route to win over SDSU (0-1) on Friday night.

This Friday, Stanford football (6-1, 5-2) hosts No. 9 Washington Huskies (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12) in Stanford Stadium. The Cardinal need a win in order to keep their hopes of winning the Pac-12 North alive. Washington needs a win so it has a shot at the College Football Playoffs.

Cardinal coaches and players addressed the added degree of difficulty and what they must do to adjust to the weather after practice.
