Shane’s Free pick

Points are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Washington wants to slow down the pace. At times their defense has been solid, and they are going to be here. Stanford only scored 63 points in the last game, and they are going to struggle to score again here. Look for a lower scoring game and the under is going to cash.
