Huskies QB Jake Browning is having another strong season, despite the multiple injuries to his weapons downfield. He's completing about 68 percent of his throws and has a 16:5 TD-to-INT ratio. Under his leadership, Washington averages 6.4 yards per play this season.

Browning is projected to finish with 187 passing yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT.

Washington's defense has been its calling card all year. The Huskies are giving up just 11.1 points per game, allowing just 3.7 yards per play. They haven't allowed more than 23 points in a game all season, and gave up 13 in their sole loss this season.

The defense is projected to force 1 turnover Friday night. Stanford is projected to score 22-to-23 points.
