Pac-12 Week 11 picks: Washington is conference's last playoff hope

Pac-12 Week 11 picks: Washington is conference's last playoff hope

The defense has been solid, so I don't think Jake Browning & Co. will put points on the board almost as quickly or effectively as last season's game in Seattle, and I'm confident they'll give the offense a good chance to win. No one in college football over the past 20 years has had such a streak, according to Stanford research.

But he gutted it out against a Huskies defense that came into the game ranked first in the nation in yards allowed and second in scoring defense. Stanford's defense will puff out its chest at home, but so will the Huskies' on the road.

Not only does Stanford need the win to have a shot at reaching the Pac-12 championship, Shaw needs two wins - this week against Washington and next week against Cal - to tie Pop Warner (POP WARNER!) for the most wins in program history.

"Jake gets lost in the shuffle sometimes because he's not the 6-4, 220-pound pro-prototype quarterback", Stanford coach David Shaw said (via the San Francisco Chronicle).

While it has been a joy to watch this league eat itself from within, the conference now sits on the outside of the College Football Playoff, as No. 9 Washington is the lone team with only one loss. Not only did Stanford keep their conference title hopes alive, but it's running back will remain very much a part of the Heisman Trophy discussion after rushing for 166 yards on 30 carries and three touchdowns. Love has TDs in 10 straight games, one shy of Toby Gerhart's school record. The Cardinal are 1-1 with him as quarterback, losing to Washington State and beating Arizona State. But he now faces perhaps the best defense at stopping big plays. Give me a break.
