Washington's dominance in this game is reflected by just about every imaginable number, but third and fourth down are pretty telling. Stanford has converted just one of its seven third down plays and is 0 for 2 on fourth down. The Huskies are 4 for 7 on third down and haven't had to bother with fourth down. Oh and Washington has seven sacks compared to zero for Stanford. In fact, Stanford doesn't have a tackle for a loss.

No. 10 Washington, up 23-zip over No. 7 Stanford at the break, essentially ended the first half with its 6th sack of the game, capping probably the most impressive halves of football in Husky Stadium since… well… since they beat Miami in 2000. Washington outgained the Cardinal 225 yards to 83. Huskies QB Jake Browning dominated the first half with downfield throws, going 5-for-6 for 113 yards with a TD on throws of 10+ yards. This is Stanford's second-largest halftime deficit in the last 10 years. Now the question is can the Huskies close the deal and avoid the second-half letup? While Stanford isn't built for scoring a bunch of points quickly, but it certainly is capable of putting pressure on the Huskies.

NCAAF 

Chantel Jennings ESPN Staff Writer 

So impressed with the Huskies' defense tonight -- six first-half sacks. Since 2008 Stanford hasn't allowed more than five sacks in a single game (and the Cardinal have only done that three times- ASU 2013, UCLA 2012, UND 2008). Joe Mathis and Psalm Wooching have two apiece.

The Cardinals tied a National League record with Matt Holliday's seventh-inning home run, his 20th of the season. The Cardinals have six players with at least 20 home runs this season, tying them with the 1965 and 2003 Atlanta Braves for the NL record. Jedd Gyorko leads the team with 29 home runs, one more than Brandon Moss.

Matt Holliday, activated before the game to get just such a greeting, was met with a long standing ovation when he pinch hit for Carlos Martinez in the seventh inning Friday with the Cardinals leading 5-0 over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Holliday hit a home run to right field off Zach Phillips, his 20th of the season. That, of course, led to an even louder ovation. Holliday took a curtain call. Before the game, the Cardinals announced they will not be picking up Holliday's 2017 option, likely making him a free agent.
