Washington loses heartbreaker to Stanford in Palo Alto

Stanford, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Ty Montgomery returned the opening kickoff
99 yards for a score and added a touchdown grab, while Stanford’s defense
stood tall down the stretch, as the fifth-ranked Cardinal edged No. 15
Washington, 31-28, in a Pac-12 clash at Stanford Stadium.

Washington’s Keith Price put forth a valiant effort, throwing for 350 yards
and two touchdowns, including a 1-yard scoring strike to Jaydon Mickens that
brought the Huskies within three with 2:38 left in the contest.

Following a Stanford three-and-out, Price moved the Huskies into Stanford
territory and on 4th-and-10 from the 49-yard line, the Washington quarterback
evaded a number of defenders behind the line before firing a strike to Kevin
Smith, who appeared to make a diving grab along the right sideline for a first
down.

However, video review showed the ball slipped through Smith’s hands and hit
the ground, giving possession back to the Cardinal, who ran out the remainder
of the clock with a pair of kneel downs.

Stanford signal-caller Kevin Hogan completed 12-of-20 passes for 100 yards,
one touchdown and one interception, while adding 37 yards and a score on 10
carries for the Cardinal (5-0, 3-0 Pac-12), who extended their winning streak
to 13 games.

Price connected on 33-of-48 throws with an interception, while Bishop Sankey
carried the ball 27 times for 125 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskies
(4-1, 1-1), who were looking for their first 5-0 start since 1992.
