No. 5 Stanford outlasts No. 15 Washington 31-28

STANFORD — Ty Montgomery had several drops and one of his worst games in a loss at Washington last season. A year later, he turned in a breakout performance that saved Stanford.

Montgomery finished with 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and the fifth-ranked Cardinal held on to beat No. 15 Washington 31-28 on Saturday night in a matchup of unbeaten Pac-12 North teams.

"I would say Ty was the difference in the ballgame," Stanford coach David Shaw.

The Huskies outgained Stanford 489-284 in total yards but had no answer for the Cardinal's rejuvenated junior wide receiver any time he touched the ball.

Montgomery returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a TD and caught a 34-yard pass for another score to put the Cardinal (5-0, 3-0) in control from the start and keep them there. He caught three passes for 56 yards, ran 30 yards on two carries and racked up 204 yards returning kicks.
