It's a huge boost for the Cardinal, as Love is essentially the entire offense. The top four passers in Pac 12 history have all played since 2009.
Stanford: RB Bryce Love sat out last week's squeaker victory over Oregon State with an ankle injury, but remains the nation's leading rusher with 1,387 yards this season.
Odds Shark lists the Cougars as a 2.5-point favorite at home, with the over/under set at 55.5.
Washington State: QB Luke Falk was pulled last weekend against Arizona after the offense sputtered, but he remains the heart of the Air Raid offense and will start. Sophomore quarterback Khalil Tate was dynamic on the ground and throwing the ball, accounting for a total of 433 yards. Backup Tyler Hilinski threw for more than 500 yards last weekend, but his four interceptions helped Arizona win. The last was returned 66 yards for a touchdown by freshman linebacker Colin Schooler. Get the app and get the game. CQ4 After the Sun Devils (4-4, 3-2 Pac-12) held down Washington and Utah, they were beaten up all over the field in a 48-17 loss. Other than a 52-yard TD run in the first half, he was shut down by the Cougars' swarming defense.
Colorado's offense got back on track in a 44-28 win against California.
Stanford's passing game has been non-existent.
