Maybe I'm coming off as a bit of a homer by choosing the Cougars to win for the 10th straight time this season.
Washington State rose as high as eighth in the AP Poll during a 6-0 start only to suffer a pair of losses at Cal and Arizona over the past two weeks. Their pass defense is giving up just 167.3 yards per game. Falk finished 34 for 48 with 337 yards, three touchdowns and one interception Saturday.
Meanwhile, Stanford comes to Pullman riding a five-game winning streak, including a narrow 15-14 victory over last-place Oregon State last week. He's rushed for 1,387 yards and 11 touchdowns in seven games this season. The Cardinal got one last possession, deep in their own territory, and it was snuffed out when WSU's Frankie Luvu made an interception. His availability provide a big boost to the Stanford offense as they travel for a tough road matchup with Washington State.
