STANFORD, Calf.– The Stanford Cardinal (3-6, 1-6 Pac 12) suffers another conference loss, this time in blowout fashion to the Washington State Cougars (5-4, 2-4 Pac 12), 52-14.

The visiting Cougars wasted no time in pouncing on the Cardinal, as they scored 21 straight points within the first ten minutes of the game. Washington States scoring in the initial stanza was: A three yard rushing touchdown by freshman receiver, Leyton Smithson.

Sophomore quarterback Cameron Ward threw a seven yard touchdown to receiver Anderson Grover, and scored one himself on a 15-yard scramble to paydirt. Stanford did manage to score before the first quarter expired, when backup freshman quarterback Ashton Daniels rushed for a one-yard touchdown, 21-7 WSU

Washington State was not finished scoring, as they tacked on another 21 points on their opponent. Stanford’s three fumbles helped a great deal too in Washington State’s prolific scoring. Ashton Daniels fumbled, which was recovered by freshman safety Jaden Hicks for a 17-yard touchdown.

Cameron Ward tossed another touchdown for nine yards to sophomore Donovan Ollie. With less than a minute to go in the half, Cougars’ junior running back Nakia Watson exploded through the line for a 49-yard touchdown. 42-7 WSU

After the mid game break, Stanford scratched the scoreboard with another touchdown by Ashton Daniels, on a two yard rush. Washington State countered with a 22-yard field goal by sophomore kicker Sean Janikowski. After 45 minutes of play, 45-14 WSU.

The final period had the Cougars, backup freshman quarterback getting into the action. John Mateer hurled the pigskin 27 yards to fellow freshman Orion Peters for the final tally of the contest. Washington State surpassed the half-century mark, 52-14 over the hosting Stanford Cardinal.

Stanford will take their two-game losing streak to Salt Lake City and battle the Utah Utes Saturday, November 15, while Washington State hosts Arizona State on the same date.

Cardinal quarterback Tanner McKee threw for 236 yards and no TD’s, while his backup, Ashton Daniels rushed for two touchdowns.

Cal Bears head coach Justin Wilcox had worry on his mind all game long against the Washington State Cougars at Pullman on Sat Oct 1, 2022 (AP News photo)

On the Cal Bears podcast:

#1 Morris, like you questioned in your column on Saturday can the Cal Bears (3-2) win a game on the road?

#2 Cal is in last with a 3-2 record how concerned is head coach Justin Wilcox?

#3 To quote Wilcox after the game “We got nothing going in the run game,” coach Justin Wilcox admitted. “Pass protection wasn’t where it needed to be. 

#4 Cal quarterback Jack Plummer went 23-33 for 273 yards against the Washington State Cougars (4-1) but did not throw one touchdown and one interception. Coach Wilcox mentioned lack of pass protection was that more the case or Plummer just couldn’t get settled in to find targets?

The Buffaloes were trampled on by the Arizona Wildcats last Saturday 43-20. Is Colorado Cal’s best chance to pick up their first win of the season?
