SEATTLE – The North multiplication has a bully, though it’s not Stanford.

The Pac-12 has a playoff contender, though it’s not a Cardinal.

The fortifying discussion champion was overwhelmed, outpace and entirely bludgeoned by 10th-ranked Washington on Friday night in roiling Husky Stadium.

The 44-6 detriment was Stanford’s misfortune in 9 years, given a 38-point better during Arizona State in 2007 – a initial deteriorate of a Jim Harbaugh era.

“We did not arise to a challenge, and that starts with me,” Stanford manager David Shaw said. “We didn’t do adequate to get a guys ready.”

It was a kind of kick down Stanford has administered so mostly during a run as Pac-12 heavyweight. But instead of determining a lines of scrimmage, a Cardinal was dominated adult front. Instead of powerful opponents during a indicate of contact, it was driven back.

The Cardinal trailed by dual touchdowns early and 23-0 during halftime. It authorised 8 sacks, averaged one yard per rush – one – and was out-gained 424 yards to 213.

“We’ve had this diversion circled given springtime,” Washington defensive lineman Joe Mathis said. “They kick us so bad final year. We wanted them so bad.”

Stanford (3-1, 2-1) got churned physically and was not pointy mentally, committing 11 penalties and appearing rattled by a competition and a atmosphere.

It took a timeout to prepared for a fourth-and-two, afterwards unfit a play.

It lined adult for a punt, afterwards was called for check of diversion and bootleg arrangement penalties.

False starts? Check.

Roughing a passer? Check.

“We knew it would be difficult,” reserve Dallas Lloyd said. “And it was tough on us.”

Heisman Trophy claimant Christian McCaffrey amassed 223 all-purpose yards, though a infancy came on kickoff returns. His longest play from struggle was only 14 yards.

(McCaffrey was not accessible for interviews following a game.)

“I’m not astounded by a outcome given a approach we played,” receiver Michael Rector said. “There were a lot of things sharpened us in a foot. We attempted to get into a stroke early and unsuccessful to do that.”

This figured to be Stanford’s toughest assignment of a early deteriorate – and maybe a whole season.

The second of back-to-back highway games — on a brief week, no reduction – a Cardinal ventured into a lament of Husky Stadium to face a top-10 competition with speed and power.

And a Cardinal had to do it but starting cornerbacks Quenton Meeks and Alijah Holder, who were out with injuries.

The impact of their deficiency was felt early, as UW struck downfield on a opening possession:

Quarterback Jake Browning, who did not play final year in Stanford’s 17-point victory, strike receiver Dante Pettis for 35 yards down a right sideline to set adult UW’s initial touchdown.

Browning found John Ross for 28 yards on a second possession as a Huskies grabbed a 13-0 lead.

“We indispensable to get off a margin on third down,” reserve Zach Hoffpauir said. “They ran a plays were we prepared for. We only didn’t execute.”

Stanford’s impressed invulnerability got no assistance from a offense. The Huskies pounced on McCaffrey, smothered a Stanford receivers downfield and bull-rushed their approach into a pocket.

The Cardinal, that typically controls a diversion by determining a ball, converted only dual of a 12 third-down opportunities.

“Third and long, with a sound and that pass rush — it’s unequivocally tough,” Shaw said.

Trailing 23-0 in a third quarter, a Cardinal had one possibility to get behind into a game: Score a touchdown on a opening possession.

The invulnerability did a part, holding on 3 downs. But a indirect punt deflected off a behind of Stanford’s Ben Edwards, and a Huskies grabbed a lax ball. Four plays last, tailback Myles Gaskin dashed into a finish section to give UW a 30-0 lead.

“I will be in a minority,” Shaw said. ‘But it’s a fourth game, and we’re 3-1. We’ll get pounded like we’re 0-12 already …

“We’re not going to give adult on ourselves. Others might. That’s excellent … We’re not going to get too low. We’ll blur into a credentials on a inhabitant scene, that is excellent by me.”
