Football Round Table: Wearily heading to Washington

The Stanford Cardinal football team (5-3, 3-2 Pac-12) has fallen out of the AP College Football Top 25 once again, after yet another heart-wrenching loss to Washington State. The good news? The Cougars look like the best team in the Pac-12 and might be heading to the Rose Bowl. The team suffered a ‘quality loss.’ The bad news? Any loss is still a loss. The Cardinal are now effectively eliminated from winning the Pac-12, and to make matters worse, they take on the Washington Huskies on the road this weekend. The Huskies aren’t looking too hot either though, getting upset by Cal just last weekend. What was once billed in the preseason as a marquee matchup is now just a Saturday evening game between two unranked teams. The Stanford Daily’s Andrew Tan, Shan Reddy, and Gregory Block take a look at Stanford’s offensive identity, the defensive game plan against Jake Browning, and the outlook for the rest of the Cardinal’s season.

Stanford football upset by unranked Utah

No. 14 Stanford (4-2, 2-1 Pac-12) suffered its second straight loss Saturday night, this time falling 40-21 to unranked Utah (3-2, 1-2 Pac-12) in Stanford Stadium. It was the first home loss for the Cardinal in nearly two years. Utah took advantage of four Stanford turnovers, turning them into 17 points, including an 100 yard pick six from defensive back Jaylon Johnson off an errant throw from junior quarterback KJ Costello. Running back Zack Moss keyed the efficient Utes offense with 160 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
