The Husky drive started with a touchback, and picked up and initial first down with runs from Cyler Miles and Lavon Coleman. A Miles incompletion, a run for nothing, and a false start put the Dawgs way behind the sticks on 3rd down. Miles completed a pass to Kasen Williams to get to 4th and 1, but a Miles QB sneak was stuffed, and Stanford would take over.
Kevin Hogan immediately completed a pass to Francis Owusu for a first down. On third down, Hau'oli Kakaha forced a fumble on a sack to force Stanford into kicking their 3rd field goal of the game, this one from 46 yards, but Stanford pushed it wide right and the score stayed knotted at 13.
Shaq Thompson got back on the field at running back, and picked up a couple of yards on his first carry of the game. The second went for nothing and Miles scrambled on 3rd down before a Korey Durkee punt back to Stanford.
Marcus Peters intercepted a Hogan pass on the second play of Stanford's drive for his third pick on the season.
A quick pass to John Ross (his first touch on offense for the game) and a read-keep by Cyler Miles moved the Huskies into Stanford territory. Cyler Miles put a seed into Kendyl Taylor's chest, but he dropped it on third and 9. Cyler Miles dropped a quick kick inside the 15 yard line.
The Husky defensive tag team of Danny Shelton and Hau'oli Kikaha got into the Stanford pocket and disrupted things, drawing a penalty and forcing a three-and-out to get the ball back to the offense.
The Huskies went backward as Miles was sacked by an unblocked man, and the Huskies gave the ball right back to the Tree on three plays.
As the third quarter came to an end, Stanford completed a big pass to Eric Cotton across midfield on a communication and coverage mistake by the UW secondary.
