No mourning after today, just a morning in the aftermath of Washington’s 52-13 win over Portland State.
Not that there’s much time to celebrate with Stanford — which suddenly looks like its old self after a win over USC Saturday night — coming to town in 11 days.
The Cardinal has beaten UW 34-14, 41-0 and 65-21 the last three years, a combined score of 140-35 that figures to be etched into the collective mind of the Huskies as they prepare for their Pac-12 opener. UW is billing the game as a “black out,” hoping for a raucous crowd to greet the Cardinal in a game that looms pivotal to Washington’s season.
