Stanford vs. Washington 2012 blog reaction: Josh Nunes, Ty Montgomery disappoint in loss

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Stanford's offense struggled against Washington in a 17-13 loss Thursday night.

The Stanford Cardinal were upset by the Washington Huskies, 17-13, Thursday night. The Huskies, powered by a stout defensive performance, overcame a 10-point deficit and scored the game-winning touchdown off a 35-yard catch-and-run from wide receiver Kasen Williams.

With the loss, No. 8 Stanford fell to 3-1 and will likely stumble down multiple spots in both polls when they're released Sunday. Washington, meanwhile, improved to 3-1 and has a shot a cracking the top-25 this week.

Scott Allen, a writer at SB Nation's Stanford blog Rule of Tree, broke down last night's loss, and for Cardinal fans, the analysis isn't pretty. Stanford's offense struggled and was the biggest reason for the loss, Allen wrote:

"[Quarterback] Josh Nunes looked as if he was throwing a K-ball for much of the game, completing 18-of-37 passes for 170 yards and an interception ... [wide receiver] Ty Montgomery played like the offensive equivalent of Carlos Rogers, but the Redskins-version of Carlos Rogers -- the Carlos Rogers who had hooves for hands. Drops really, really hurt the Cardinal tonight."
