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

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.
