Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.

The Husky defense and Peyton Henry kept Stanford in check on Saturday night, well enough for the offense to make a scintillating final drive for the winning touchdown. Maybe Stanford isn’t the same power they’ve been under David Shaw, but Chris Petersen never carved out an away win over the Tree. Wherever the season goes from here, there’s cause to consider this a special victory.

While the passing game continued to be inconsistent, the defense gave a strong performance. And if not for a questionable 4th down penalty, UW may well have held Stanford (the only team to beat Oregon this year), without a touchdown.

Go Dawgs!! Beat Oregon!
