Washington Special Teams Not Special in Loss
Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. 15 Washington 31-28 on Saturday night in a matchup of unbeaten Pac-12 North teams.
Montgomery returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a TD and caught a 34-yard pass for another score to put the Cardinal (5-0, 3-0) in control from the start and keep them there. Stanford led from wire-to-wire while winning its 13th straight game and 12th in a row at home, though Washington never went away.
Keith Price threw for 350 yards and two touchdowns and nearly led the Huskies (4-1, 1-1) back. But officials overturned Price's completed pass on fourth down in the final minutes to end Washington's rally.
Washington hosts Oregon next Saturday at 1:00 p.m. The Huskies are planning on wearing black uniforms and are calling for a "black out" by fans attending the game.
