Halftime update: Despite lopsided stats, Huskies and Stanford are tied 13-13

Stanford is outgaining Washington 237-90, has run 40 plays to just 23 for UW, and has 15 first-downs to the Huskies' seven. But thanks to a 32-yard fumble return for a touchdown by Shaq Thompson, the score is tied, 13-13, at halftime.

Washington's other touchdown was a perfectly-thrown 25-yard pass from Cyler Miles to Jaydon Mickens, but the extra point attempt failed due to a botched snap/hold.

Stanford's Remound Wright has 10 carries for 56 yards. Lavon Coleman leads Washington with seven carries for 47 yards. The Cardinal have twice settled for field goals, with their one touchdown coming when Ty Montgomery caught a pass from Kevin Hogan and bulled his way through three UW defenders for a 17-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Miles is 6-for-9 passing for 60 yards and a touchdown, and has been sacked once. Hogan is 13-for-19 for 125 yards and a touchdown, and has not been sacked.

Thompson's touchdown came after Wright appeared to be stopped on a 3rd-and-short run. But his knee never touched the ground, the officials didn't blow the whistle to end the play, and Thompson stripped him of the ball and took it 32 yards for a touchdown. It was a bizarre play and few on the field seemed to really know what was going on, but the score was upheld by a review and it allowed the Huskies to enter halftime tied with the Cardinal.
