Two-minute drill after the Huskies’ 20-13 loss to No. 16 Stanford:

Player of the game

Washington linebacker Shaq Thompson scored his fourth touchdown of the season (and third on defense) on a 32-yard fumble recovery and return late in the first half that helped the Huskies tie the score at 13-13. He forced another fumble that Washington recovered, accounted for seven tackles (five solo) and also played some strong safety.

Play of the game

Washington had one effective offensive possession all game, early in the second quarter when the Huskies drove 75 yards in seven plays. The drive ended with quarterback Cyler Miles lofting the ball to Jaydon Mickens in the end zone for a 25-yard touchdown pass. The score pulled UW to 10-6 behind with 9:59 left in the first half.

Turning point

Facing fourth-and-nine with about eight minutes to go in the game and the score tied at 13-13, the Huskies ran a fake punt but Thompson was stuffed on a run. Stanford took over at the Washington 47 with 7:37 to go and scored six plays later on a 5-yard run by quarterback Kevin Hogan.

By the numbers

179 — Total net yards by Washington, a season low. The Huskies’ season low last season was 212 in a 53-24 defeat at Arizona State on Oct. 19.
98 — Passing yards by the Huskies, their fewest since passing for 72 yards in the 2010 Holiday Bowl.
