Which of the Pac-12 matchups this weekend are you most looking forward to and why?
Josh Schlichter, Pacific Takes: Stanford vs. Washington. We'll get to see if Washington is for real this weekend as the Huskies prepare to take on the two best teams in the conference (if not the nation) in consecutive weeks.
Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Washington at Stanford. It was one of the most tense games of 2012, I think it is a great matchup of speed vs strength and Stanford has to be out for revenge after the Huskies prevented them from running the table in the Pac-12. Also, the Huskies look like they might be able to step up to the level of Stanford and Oregon this year, and this will be their chance to prove that they can do it.
Adam Butler, Pac Hoops: Washington's visit to Stanford. Firstly, I'm dying to go tailgate at this one so I very well might. My buddy is a surgical resident (I have smart effing friends) and they host a tailgate. I'll wear neutral colors.
Secondly, this could be a helluva ball game. The Cardinal have only lost once falling in Seattle last year (that ND game was stupid and forced us all to watch that National title game) and likely have revenge on the mind. I like revenge. It makes for good SPORTS.
Trevor Wong, Conquest Chronicles: Stanford vs. Washington. Remember last year when Washington upset No. 8 Stanford, 17-13? Fast forward a year: Keith Price has been particularly impressive through four games (1044 passing yards, 10 total touchdowns), along with Bishop Sankey, who ranks first in the nation in rushing yards per game (151.8). The Huskies defense ranks fourth in scoring defense and ninth in passing defense. The Cardinal, meanwhile, have been led by Kevin Hogan, who ranks 11th in passing efficiency, with 832 passing yards and 10 touchdowns.
