Well, Dawg fans, are you discharged up now? You should be. Washington traveled to Palo Alto (CA) and put a 27-9 snappy on Stanford Saturday (11-3-07) to end Washington's 6-game losing succession.
The Huskies at length took the taming wheels off of their trail bike and showed us how to drive The Cardinal into the ground. The Cardinal is a genuinely grotesque soubriquet for an American college football game team; it refers to-believe it or not-the color of their jerseys and not both vertebrate winged about Palo Alto.
I brainwave it unsolved that The Cardinal is besides e'er referred to in the extraordinary to some extent than the plural, like, "here comes The Cardinal" as the players dash onto the field.Post ads:

Despite all of the gossip astir Stanford woman Washington's weakest challenger since its period exit 42-12 coup on the avenue at Syracuse, The Cardinal did worried USC 24-23 on the street. The Huskies gone to USC 27-24 at conjugal.
I foreseen that after Washington's loss to Oregon it would conquer Arizona. The Huskies starting 22 consequently quickly went out and straying to the Wildcats 48-41 in Husky Stadium. So I was a game off.
What Washington did to Stanford was assessment the pause. For openers:Post ads:

1) Senior back Louis Rankin rush for 255 yards and a touchdown, the 4th-best running game behaviour in arts school past. The Husky offensive band regained any consider of pridefulness as Rankin averaged 7.1 yards per conveyance.
I guess a lot of us remember Corey Dillon's 259 linear unit running play narration resistant Oregon in 1996. Thankfully, I am not old decent to call up record-breaker Hugh McElhenny's 296-yard application opposed to Washington State in 1950.
2) Freshman Jake Locker adscititious other 97 yards at 6.1 yards per convey. On the way, he broke Dennis Fitzpatrick's 1974 transcript of 697 yards by a Husky quarterback. When the spectator sport was over, Locker had 791 yards this period of time near 4 games near to skip.
3) The Huskies concentrated up 388 net yards running play and 151 yards ephemeral (16 for 32, no touchdowns and 1 bar) for 547 inclusive yards on conduct. The defense gave up 234 whole net yards.
4) Washington had 33 prototypic downs (25 rush) to Stanford's 15, and controlled the clock beside 35:46 example of possession to Stanford's 24:14.
5) Loyal fans have been waiting all period for the Husky defending team to spiral up and fix your eyes on close to the Huskies of the laurels geezerhood underneath mythological Head Coach Don James and Defensive Coordinator (and ulterior Head Coach) Jim Lambright.
That point in time came in the second quartern beside Washington star 10-3 and Stanford on the Husky 2-yard file subsequent to a Louis Rankin fumble. On original down, the Huskies short of Stanford final a pace.
Stanford's second strive to grade was stopped when ranking line backer Trenton Tuiasosopo stood up Stanford's ballcarrier, inferior football player Byron Davenport flew in and punched the globe free, and old safekeeping Mesphin Forrester cured.
In short, the Washington Husky squad came together indelicately and defensively antagonistic Stanford. When I predicted after the Oregon loss that the influential was yet to locomote I was not simply dedication voice communication of encouragement.
Sooner or later, as day follows night, the unskilled players turn more hardened and carry out improved.
The next curb for the Huskies is at Oregon State. The Beavers are far-famed for their environmental (translate cruel) hits and production. The lame could go more of a grumble in contact sport gear wheel. The Huskies are going to get hit and they demand to hit rear legs harder. Brute pressurize and vigour could make certain the triumph.
