Rule of Tree Staff Predictions: Stanford vs Washington State

Can the Cardinal cool off the Cougars?

I feel Stanford is good enough to beat this team but I don’t feel Shaw and Company are humble enough to change their ways to see what needs to be done. This has the makings of a game where Stanford is always a touchdown away but can’t make that clutch play. WSU 35 Stanford 30.

If Bryce Love is healthy, and ONLY if he’s healthy, I say Stanford uses time of possession in its favor and runs against a not so great defense in Washington State. It is the only way to beat Minshew and his receivers even though Adebo and the rest of the secondary can stop the ball in the air, Stanford will have to capitalize on every possession they get to get points on the board. I see a low scoring game, if that happens, 17-14 Stanford.

I had a dream this week that Stanford won 58-21. I don’t think my dream will come true. In fact, if anyone is going to win by that much, it will be the Cougars. I believe without Bryce Love the Cardinal never have a chance, and Wazzu wins 35-17. Meanwhile, with Love, I believe the Cardinal will win. The Cougar front seven isn’t great, and a healthy Love will explode for a big game, which will also open up the passing game and lead to a 38-35 win.
