Through 3 Quarters

A victory for the Washington State Cougars would push them over .500, and after three quarters they have put themselves in a good position to make this happen. It's anybody's game, but Washington State is ahead of the Stanford Cardinal 27-22.

QB Jayden de Laura has led the way so far for Washington State, as he has passed for three TDs and 233 yards on 22 attempts. Stanford has been led by QB Tanner McKee, who so far has passed for one TD and 192 yards on 24 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.

What to Know

Get ready for a Pac-12 battle as the Washington State Cougars and the Stanford Cardinal will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Clarence D. Martin Stadium. Washington State will be strutting in after a victory while Stanford will be stumbling in from a loss.

The Cougars beat the Oregon State Beavers 31-24 last week. Washington State's QB Jayden de Laura did his thing and passed for three TDs and 399 yards on 46 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was de Laura's 55-yard TD bomb to WR Joey Hobert in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, Stanford ended up a good deal behind the Arizona State Sun Devils when they played last Friday, losing 28-10. QB Tanner McKee had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw three interceptions. That was the first 300+ yard effort for McKee this season.

This next matchup is expected to be close, with Washington State going off at just a 1-point favorite. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

The Cougars' win brought them up to 3-3 while the Cardinal's defeat pulled them down to an identical 3-3. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: Washington State is 190th worst in the nation in rushing touchdowns allowed, with nine on the season. Stanford has experienced some rushing struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 237th most rushing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 15 on the season. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
