Jake Browning has looked impressive so far tonight, really looking to attack Stanford's depleted secondary. Huskies had two explosive pass plays in the first quarter -- a 35-yard completion to Dante Pettis and a 28-yard completion to John Ross.

Washington being extremely undisciplined here. Huskies had 35 penalty yards in the first quarter. Coming into this game they averaged 47 penalty yards per game.

Story of first quarter was Washington's sophomore QB Jake Browning. He completed 6 of 7 passes for 108 yard with a touchdown, his standard measure efficiency rating a stout 262.5 as the Huskies jumped to a 13-0 lead. Stanford is missing both starting corners, and clearly Chris Petersen saw an opportunity to attack in the pass game. Petersen won't be happy with four penalties for 50 yards, including a pair of personal fouls. Without penalties, Stanford had no offense in first quarter. The Huskies averaged 10.3 yards per play compared to 2.7 for Stanford.

It's all Washington early on

Myles Gaskin powers in from four yards out to give Washington a 13-0 first-quarter lead over Stanford.

Stanford athletic director Bernard Muir and LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer -- former Microsoft CEO -- chat on the sidelines before Stanford--Washington kickoff. Ballmer, despite his long Seattle history, is in Stanford gear because he went to business school there.

While Stanford being down two starting cornerbacks is a big pregame story for Washington QB Jake Browning, that angle also plays to Stanford QB Ryan Burns. This is only his second road start and the Huskies own the Pac-12's best defense. At least that was the preseason story. Burns and the Cardinal offense struggled most of the game at UCLA last week until making a clutch drive to take a late lead.

Stanford at Washington tonight on ESPN Radio. Stanford is w/out their top two CB's in Meeks and Holder but talking to DC Lance Anderson he said all they lose is a little size. Nothing more. Should be a good one.

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott and his wife Cybille pose with Harry the Husky, though of course the Scotts are neutral parties with Stanford in town. Scott went to Harvard by the way.

The Pac-12 has three live mascots (including Stanford...). Here's Washington's Dubs, giving a high five during a pregame event.

All around town in Baton Rouge, there are signs thanking former LSU coach Les Miles, who was fired Sunday after winning 114 games, two SEC championships and one national championship.

You'd be hard pressed to find a more unique tailgate scene in the Pac-12. Boaters find their way into Lake Washington and then the grilling and drinking begins.

The Huskies' mascot Dubs' best trick: He's asked whether he'd prefer to be a Washington State Cougar or a dead dog. Dubs howls and plays dead (and is then told by his handlers "Good boy!").


David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

The NCAA's new "interpretation" of the definition of a helmet's crown is, in effect, a midseason rules change, since the crown had been so vaguely defined before. Now, officials should call targeting on any helmet-to-helmet hit initiated from any area above the top of the facemask to the top of the helmet.

Washington fan Roger Anderson's RV celebrates the Huskies many Rose Bowl berths. You might notice that it's been a while since he added a leaf to his rose (2001). Thus the hope of taking a step toward that tonight against Stanford.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

Tonight's game may be a referendum on what kind of schedule to play in September. No. 7 Stanford has beaten three Power 5 teams -- Kansas State, USC and UCLA. No. 10 Washington has opened with Rutgers, Idaho, FCS Portland St., and Arizona. That foursome is a collective 3-8 against FBS opponents, 0-6 vs. Power 5 teams.
