Using Stanford as a barometer as they both played @ The Farm and within two weeks of each other:
Washington gained 30 1st downs against Stanford's defense (UCLA 16)
Washington gained 489 yards total offense (UCLA gained 266)
Washington allowed 279 against Stanford (UCLA allowed 419)
Washington held Stanford to 100 passing yards (UCLA allowed 227)
Time of Possession against Stanford...Wash 28:21 UCLA 22:49
Someone brought up that this could be a revenge game for UCLA with the 2010 loss @ Washington. Most of the relevant players and coaches on this UCLA squad were nowhere around in 2010 so I don't even consider this a revenge game.
Statistically in EVERY category and comparative game I looked at Washington is the better team on paper than UCLA. But that's why they play the game on the field.
And on the field tonight I'm going with Washington +3 tonight Gents
