Cameron Scarlett had the best day of his career yet last week.  Scarlett rushed for a career-high 157 yards and a touchdown, quarterback Davis Mills had another impressive game in place of injured starter K.J. Costello before apparently getting hurt himself, and Stanford pulled off its biggest win of the season, stunning No. 15 Washington 23-13 on Saturday night.

The Cardinal (3-3, 2-2 Pac-12) extended their home winning streak to six games, dating to 2007, against the Huskies with a plodding, methodical offense that kept Washington quarterback Jacob Eason on the sidelines for long chunks of the game.

"It's very satisfying but by no means are we satisfied," Scarlett said. "It felt good to get the win. We had so many guys go down and get hurt. But it feels good. We needed that and we're going to build on it."

The Cardinal (3-3, 2-2 Pac-12) extended their home winning streak to six games,.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, ESPN. LINE: Stanford -8

ABOUT UCLA (1-5, 1-2 Pac-12): Sophomore Austin Burton was 27-of-41 for 236 yards and a touchdown in the victory against Oregon State and could make his second career start in place of Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who has been out with a leg injury. Running back Demetric Felton had 166 scrimmage yards against the Beavers, but the Bruins' defense allowed Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton to throw for a career-high five touchdowns passes and run for another. UCLA ranks near the bottom of the country in passing yards allowed (340.7 per game), total defense (503.3 yards allowed per game) and points allowed per game (37.7).

ABOUT STANFORD (3-3, 2-2): The Cardinal are set to start three true freshmen on its offensive line in front of sophomore Jack West, who is expected to make his first career start with Davis Mills and K.J. Costello sidelined because of injuries. Scarlett rushed a career-high 33 times for 151 yards and a touchdown in the win over Washington and has 702 all-purpose yards to lead the Cardinal, which is averaging nearly 35 minutes in time of possession, fourth-best in the country. The defense is led by cornerback Paulson Adebo, who ranks in the top 10 nationally in passes defended, pass breakups and passes defended per game.
