Suffering a devastating performance that led to a dominant win by Washington this weekend, let’s try to look ahead and see how the rest of our future opponents fared this week.
Washington State 33, Oregon 10
The now 6-0 Cougars showed why they are the 11th best team in the country, going to Eugene and defeating Oregon at home. Washington State’s Luke Falk threw 3 TD’s and added another 282 yards to his already dominant year. Although Oregon’s was able to sack Falk 4 times, the offense just couldn’t keep pace with the Cougars.
Arizona 45, Colorado 42
It seems pretty clear who will take the reigns as Arizona’s starting QB from this point on. Backup QB, Khalil Tate set the FBS rushing record by a QB with a ridiculous 327 yards and 4 TD’s on 14 carries. Not only was he unstoppable on the run, but he managed 11 of 12 for 142 yards and 1 TD passing. While Colorado managed to play a respectable game themselves, dominating the time of possession and posting 551 yards of total offense, they had no answer for Tate’s run game.
Oregon State 10, USC 38
A game that seemingly went as expected. USC’s Sam Darnold threw 29 completions for 316 yards and 3 TD’s, whereas Oregon State’s Darell Garretson managed 197 yards but with no TD’s.
Stanford 23, Utah 20
Now on a 3-game win streak, the Cardinal’s defeat the 20th ranked Utes and move into the 23rd spot with a 4-2 record. In a game led offensively by Bryce Love and his 152 yards and 1 TD on 20 carries, Stanford managed to squeak by Utah. On a positive note, Stanford’s defense allowed 382 yards of total offense against them, including giving up 6-fourth down conversions.
