STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - The feeling of disappointment and despair in the locker room after losing 17-13 at Washington last season is something that Stanford players will never forget.
What happened on the field is even more painful to recall.
The offense has undergone a major makeover under quarterback Kevin Hogan since that setback in Seattle, and players and coaches believe it will make all the difference when the fifth-ranked Cardinal (4-0, 2-0) host the No. 15 Huskies (4-0, 1-0) in a critical Pac-12 North showdown Saturday night.
Stanford has shifted from an offense reliant on short and intermediate passes to tight ends to one that goes deep to wide receivers who are continually creating separation. Hogan is 9-0 as a starter.
