Recap


Washington 17, No. 9 Stanford 13
: Kasen Williams broke loose for a 35-yard touchdown reception late in the fourth quarter as the Huskies shocked the visiting Cardinal.

Bishop Sankey rushed for a career-high 144 yards and a touchdown for Washington (3-1, 2-0 Pac-12), which ended a four-game losing streak to Stanford (3-1, 1-1).

The Huskies, who outgained the Cardinal 313-217, trailed 6-3 at halftime and appeared to be on their way to a hard-luck loss after quarterback Keith Price was intercepted by Trent Murphy, who returned it 40 yards for a touchdown to give Stanford a 13-3 advantage.

But Sankey gashed the Cardinal defense for a career-long 61-yard scoring run on Washington’s next possession as time expired in the third quarter and, after an exchange of punts, Williams’ catch-and-run gave the Huskies a 17-13 lead with 4:53 remaining. Washington then intercepted Josh Nunes on Stanford’s final possession to preserve the victory.

Stepfan Taylor, the conference’s second-leading rusher, was held to 75 yards on the ground for the Cardinal.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Prior to Williams’ touchdown reception, Washington had not scored in the fourth quarter this season. Ironically, Stanford had yet to allow a fourth-quarter score. … The Cardinal had won their last three road openers and conference road openers. … Stanford entered this contest allowing just 41.7 rushing yards, but surrendered 177 to the Huskies.
