Stanford Cardinal at Washington State Cougars (+9.5, 47.5)
The Cardinal will be without star safety Ed Reynolds for the first half, a result of a hit to the helmet last week. Stanford enters the game winners of 11 straight, the second-longest streak in the nation. Stanford G David Yankey will miss the game because of an unspecified "family situation".
The Cougars, ranked 10th in the nation in total defense, have won three straight for the first time since 2006 and are allowing 12 points per contest. Leach's offense still remains formidable as quarterback Connor Halliday has already thrown for more than 300 yards three times.
LINE: Stanford has remained steady at -9.5. Total moved from 48 to 47.5.
WEATHER: Temperatures in mid 50s, 100 percent chance of rain, winds SSW 11 mph.
