Are they as good good enough to do it?

Stanford: QB K.J. Costello. That was the loudest Husky stadium has been since the Stanford game a year ago, and it was great. Love was outstanding in this game, avoiding tackles at the line of scrimmage and displaying shiftiness at the second level. I picked Stanford to win the Pac-12 North before the season. But that's the problem; I don't think the Stanford offense is capable of outscoring the Huskies, no matter how well the defense contains them. That could be tough against the Huskies, who have the best defense in the country in terms of yards allowed per game. Stanford can still get a berth to the Pac-12 Championship Game, but it will need some help to make that happen. Against the two best defensive fronts the Cardinal have faced this season (USC and Washington State), their offense has folded.

The thought of Washington repeating last year's run to the College Football Playoff wasn't all that outlandish entering Friday night's game at Stanford. Look for junior running back Bryce Love to play a focused and competitive game despite rehabbing from an ankle injury. He had four catches for 87 yards, including a 47-yard TD catch last week.

Love leads the Pac-12 in rushing and is second in the nation behind San Diego State's Rashaad Penny, but the more impressive element to Love's performance on Friday was that he was playing on "one leg", according to his coach David Shaw. Washington, now 8-2 overall and 5-2 in conference play, sits third in its own division with home games against Utah and WSU left on the schedule. Costello, despite his struggles last week against Washington State. Washington leads the nation in total defense (240.9 ypg) and is No. 2 in scoring defense (11.1 ppg), No. 3 in pass defense (149.8 ypg) and No. 6 in rush defense (91.1 ypg).

You need a multi-dimensional offense to beat Washington and its stingy defense, and Stanford doesn't have the playmakers even if Bryce Love is healthy. Stanford - CB Alijah Holder (knee) and OT Walker Little (undisclosed) are out.
