COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Stanford is 4-0 ATS L4 in series. Wash is 0-4 ATS before playing Oregon. Last year: STANFORD (-20) over Washington, 65-21. Stanford has one of the best defensive lines in the nation, which has led to their 3-0 start and upset win over USC. The hangover should be no factor considering they are coming off a bye. It also helps to have a quality head coach in David Shaw, who should have his team prepared for a tough road game. But this roadie won’t be that tough against a team that was roughed up by LSU this year, 41-3, while beating San Diego State and Portland State. Stanford has the running game led by Stepfan Taylor and an emerging quarterback in Josh Nunes.
