Welcome to Husky Haul’s inaugural game thread for the 2013 Husky football season. Here’s all the info you need for watching the game. Make sure to join the conversation below in the comments, which should update automatically.

No. 15 Washington Huskies vs. No. 5 Stanford Cardinal

Time/Location: 7:30 p.m. PDT/Stanford Stadium/Palo Alto, Calif.

TV: ESPN

Radio: 950 KJR

Stream: Watch ESPN

Predictions:

Evan Webeck: Stanford 31, Washington 28

It’s going to come down to whichever team has the ball last. In the end, the whole country will see that Washington is a program to be feared once again. The Huskies will get their revenge in Seattle next year.

Jesse Kennemer: Stanford 31, Washington 24

No one should be completely shocked by a Washington upset, but considering that the team’s only road game this year was a 34-24 win over Illinois, their closest contest of the year, I can’t take such a large leap of faith without feeling like a homer.

Paul Somerstein: Washington 34, Stanford 28

Dawgs win, baby. This program is years overdue for a big road win. Play their game and don’t let Stanford dictate the pace.

Erik Erickson: Stanford 24, Washington 21

The Cardinal are too powerful on offense and defensive side of the ball and wear down the Huskies to grind out a victory. Washington loses but shows the nation they are a contender for the Pac-12.

Jackson Safon: Stanford 28, Washington 24

Both teams are better than when they played each other last year, but Stanford’s dominance in the run game both on offense and defense will prove too tough for the Huskies to overcome. It will be a close one but Stanford’s strength combined with its home field advantage will put them over the top.

Eric Nelson: Washington 28, Stanford 27

A big game from Bishop Sankey will lead the way to some holes opening up in the passing game, and the Dawgs will make a clutch TD drive late in the game. The front-seven will play well enough and the secondary won’t allow any huge plays thru the air, holding just enough for a UW victory.

    Ok, that’s not how you involve Sankey

  • Erik Erickson

    We need some Granpa Sankey cameos

  • Evan Webeck

    KEVIN SMITH! STOP DROPPING PASSES!

    • Alicia de Artola

      Every time I look up he’s dropping one

      • Evan Webeck

        3 on the night

  • Evan Webeck

    Huskies get a huge gift with a dumb penalty from Stanford

  • Alicia de Artola

    The dumbest roughing the passer penalties always come on long third downs

  • Alicia de Artola

    GREAT throw right there. Impressive

  • Evan Webeck

    GRANDPA SANKEY!! HE DON’T GO DOWN

  • http://fansided.com/ Michael Castillo

    What a throw and what a run. Geez, that was a crazy drive.

    • Evan Webeck

      I’ll take it. Seriously need a stop and score at some point, though.

  • Evan Webeck

    Special teams are absolutely killing UW

    • Erik Erickson

      Why cant we find someone who can kick it in to the god damn endzone?

      • Evan Webeck

        Not sure why Van Winkle isn’t. He’s gotten touchbacks this season. It’s clearly a gameplan to kick it short, but it’s not working.

        • Erik Erickson

          If thats his gameplan then someone needs to question him. Kicking it into the endzone should be the play every time

          • Evan Webeck

            Totally agree. I’m guessing he’s doing his best to avoid Montgomery, but at this point, he may as well kick it out of bounds.

  • Alicia de Artola

    SMH, Washington just can’t enjoy the momentum can they?

    • http://fansided.com/ Michael Castillo

      This is just a weird game. Neither team can. Fake punt —> back to back sacks —-> Roughing the passer. It just keeps going back and forth.

  • Evan Webeck

    Looked like Price said something something “help me” on the sidelines. I’m no lip reader, though.

  • Evan Webeck

    I don’t know how much more of this I can take

    • http://fansided.com/ Michael Castillo

      You need to be 21. Mill Ave would be a great postgame treatment for this game.

      • Evan Webeck

        Dude. Senior year. Can’t wait haha

  • Evan Webeck

    Any score here ends the game, gotta think. A 3-and-out would give UW at least a little momentum

  • Evan Webeck

    3-and-out. Just like the doctor ordered. Now the offense needs to get to work. Anything works here.

  • Evan Webeck

    For as awful as Smith has played, he’s made some HUGE catches

  • Evan Webeck

    Keith Price has played like a man tonight. No matter the outcome, he’s been incredible

  • Evan Webeck

    Welp

  • http://fansided.com/ Michael Castillo

    Ugh. That was such a masterful drive.

  • Evan Webeck

    Well, I hope GameDay still comes to Seattle next weekend. If they know what they’re doing, they will. Most heated rivalry in the Northwest and two top-15 teams. Can’t imagine UW dropping much if any after tonight.

  • Evan Webeck

    Why didn’t the clock stop there? Chains were being reset and about six seconds ran off the clock.

  • Evan Webeck

    Oh boy. Kasen Williams!

  • Alicia de Artola

    This game deserves an exciting ending.

    • http://fansided.com/ Michael Castillo

      Yes please.

    • Evan Webeck

      Seems like it’s about to get one. UW still has three timeouts, too!

  • Alicia de Artola

    Go for the onside? Or take your chances with a kick off?

    • Evan Webeck

      Kick off. Still have 3 timeouts and have stopped Stanford recently. Have to kick off

      • Alicia de Artola

        Anywhere but montgomery

  • Alicia de Artola

    OOOH BOY! What an open field tackle.

  • Alicia de Artola

    (Pac-12 refs and their love affair with 4th and short holding penalties)

  • Evan Webeck

    I’m going to have to step away for a second a scream my mind out

  • Alicia de Artola

    Wow…….just wow. What a time to drop the ball.

  • Evan Webeck

    WHAT IS GOING ON?? I LOVE THIS GAME

  • Alicia de Artola

    Pac-12 refs have surprised me before, but nothing there to overturn for me.

  • Alicia de Artola

    Speechless. No idea what they saw.

  • Evan Webeck

    That’s the ballgame. Damn, didn’t think there was enough evidence.

  • Alicia de Artola

    Oh well, hard fought. Absolutely no shame in that loss for UW. Goodnight

  • Evan Webeck

    So yeah guys, I predicted this exact outcome. At least I have a bright side!
