Stanford vs. Washington: Game time, TV schedule and more

The Washington Huskies will look to tame an undefeated Stanford team when the Cardinal visit Husky Stadium in a Pac-12 matchup on Thursday night.

Stanford (3-0) is hitting the road for the first time in 2012, and the Huskies will be on the national stage for the first time since they were demolished 41-3 by No. 3 LSU in a Week 2 game in Baton Rouge. The Huskies biggest challenge might be containing a potent Stanford rushing attack. When the two teams squared off last season, the Cardinal ran wild on the Huskies front seven, amassing 446 yards in a 65-21 blowout. Running back Stepfan Taylor used just 10 carries to gain 138 yards on the Huskies porous run defense in last year's game. The 5'11, 215 senior back is coming off a strong game in Week 3 against the No. 13 USC Trojans, in which he rushed for 153 yards and scored two touchdowns.

The Huskies (2-1) will likely lean on running back Bishop Sankey to spark the offense. The sophomore back has carried the ball 44 times for 185 yards and three touchdowns this season, and they'll hope to get him going early against a Cardinal run defense that is allowing 149.7 yards per game.

Stanford is currently a 6.5-point favorite, according to OddsShark.

Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. PT, and the game will be televised on ESPN. The radio broadcast will be carried on KJR 950 AM.
