Herbstreit’s Pick: Oregon (W)

No. 6 Washington 27, Stanford 17

The Huskies (5-0, 2-0) were just too much for the Cardinal (2-3, 0-3) to overcome in this one, staying two possessions ahead of Stanford in every stretch of the game. After jumping out to a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter behind two Jacob Eason touchdowns, Stanford’s first touchdown came by way of an interception returned for six points but quickly saw the scoring gap jump back to two possessions before halftime. Stanford didn’t score a touchdown again until the fourth quarter when they rushed home a touchdown with just 1:59 left.

Passing Stats:
Eason: 17-29, 212 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
K.J. Costello: 12-25, 142 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT

Salvon Ahmed: 22 carries, 118 yards, 0 TD
Cameron Scarlett: 15 carries, 84 yards, 0 TD

Defensive Stats:
Brandon Wellington: 10 total tackles, 9 solo, 4 TFL, 2 sacks
Casey Toohill: 7 total tackles, 5 solo, 1 TFL

Herbstreit’s Pick: Washington (W)

Notre Dame 31, No. 21 Arizona State 21

The storybook beginning to his season is now behind him and Jayden Daniels got a dose of blue-blood football as the Fighting Irish (2-4) stymied the Sun Devils (4-1, 2-0) in the second half. Daniels did throw for two scores but one was late in the game with it well out of reach as he struggled to find a rhythm and the defense couldn’t contain Ian Book. It’s back to the drawing board and back to conference play now.

Passing Stats:
Daniels: 16-32, 183 yards, 2 TD, 2 INT
Book: 22-32, 246 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT

Rushing Stats:
Eno Benjamin: 18 carries, 135 yards, 1 TD
Jafar Armstrong: 12 carries, 50 yards, 0 TD

Receiving Stats:
Kyle Williams: 5 receptions, 72 yards, 2 TD, 39 YAC
Lawrence Keys III: 8 receptions, 105 yards, 0 TD, 25 YAC (Finke: 3 TD)

Defensive Stats:
Khaylan Kearse-Thomas: 10 total tackles, 5 solo, 2 TFL, 1 sack
Julian Okwara: 8 total tackles, 5 solo, 1 TFL

Herbstreit’s Pick: Arizona State (L)

No. 18 Washington State 35, Cal 21

A week after scoring just seven points, the Cougars (5-1, 2-1) got back to it against a pretty well-rounded Cal (2-3, 0-2) secondary that looked nothing like it against Washington State. Anthony Gordon torched the Bears defensive backs for four touchdowns and 403 yards passing, increasing his national-leading passing yardage totals. This Cougar team can score on anyone, just as long as there’s not rain in the forecast.

Passing Stats:
Gordon: 27-49, 403 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT
Chase Garbers: 16-38, 232 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT

Rushing Stats:
Max Borghi: 3 carries, 15 yards, 0 TD
Marcel Dancy: 21 carries, 94 yards, 0 TD

Receiving Stats:
Dezmon Patmon: 11 receptions, 152 yards, 1 TD, 46 YAC
Kekoa Crawford: 7 receptions, 120 yards, 2 TD, 80 YAC

Defensive Stats:
Josh Woods: 9 total tackles, 8 solo, 1 FF, 2 PBU
Evan Weaver: 5 total tackles, 5 solo, 1 TFL

Herbstreit’s Pick: Washington State (W)

Herbstreit’s overall picks after Week 6: 37-10
Week 1: 8-2
Week 2: 7-2
Week 3: 8-3
Week 4: 6-1
Week 5: 5-0
