The 16th ranked Stanford Cardinal came into Husky Stadium with their stingy veteran defense and never really gave the Huskies a change to get their offense going. However, the Huskies defense was also up to the task on Saturday forcing 3 turnovers of their own. The highlight was a fumble returned for a touchdown by Shaq Thompson, who is making this a habit lately. It was at tough fought game that really came down to a botched fake punt at mid field that Stanford was able to take down the field for the go-ahead score for a 20-13 victory. It was a perfect early fall day with the sun out which led to challenging shooting conditions but also some very hie light and effects.
