What's at Stake Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the biggest game in the Pac-12 this week if not the entire season. On Friday night at 6:00 PM PDT, The University of Washington Huskies take on the Stanford University Cardinal (it's a color). Here's a short list of why this game is important:

  1. Both teams are undefeated this year, the Huskies are 4-0, the Cardinal 3-0. That will change for one of these teams.
  2. Both teams are in the top ten of the AP college poll, the Huskies at #10, the Cardinal at #7
  3. The teams are #1 (Cardinal) and #2 (Huskies) in the Pac-12 North. The winner of this game will be at #1. (Stanford is #1 because their conference record is 2-0 and the Huskies conference record is 1-0.)
  4. The overall series is tied at 41-41-4, so this game will break the tie.
  5. This is the Huskies' Pac-12 home opener. They don't want to lose in front of their home fans.
  6. The game will be aired nationally on ESPN. Since it's on a Friday, it will probably be watched by more college football fans than if it were on a Saturday while other games are being played.
And, of course, I'm rooting for the Huskies. Go Dawgs!

UPDATE: And, the winner of this game will probably move up in the AP poll, the loser will probably drop out of the top ten.
