The Stanford Cardinal (3-2), who rank No. 25 in the most recent AP Poll, will look to bounce back after a devastating, last-second defeat to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. With just 1:01 remaining in the fourth quarter, Stanford’s stout defense, which is allowing just 8.6 points per game, allowed a 24-yard touchdown pass to give the Fighting Irish the win. Stanford’s top playmakers, quarterback Kevin Hogan and wide receiver Ty Montgomery, were completely shut down. Hogan completed just 50 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions. Montgomery was limited to just four catches for 12 yards. Expect things to change when Stanford faces a Washington State defense that allowed 527 passing yards and five passing touchdowns last week to the California Bears. Since this game will be played on Friday night, ticket prices have been reduced on the secondary market.
According to TiqIQ, the average price for Washington State vs. Stanford football tickets is currently just $18 on the secondary market while the get-in price for the game is $2. The season average ticket price for a Stanford home game is $50.37, which indicates low demand for this match-up.
Alike Stanford, the Washington State Cougars (2-4) are also coming off a last second defeat. Washington State dropped a close 60-59 decision to California. Quarterback Connor Halliday threw for an astounding 734 yards and six touchdowns in the loss. Wide receiver Vince Mayle led the way with 263 yards while wide receiver River Cracraft scored three touchdowns. Washington State will face arguably its toughest test against Stanford’s stout defense.
While secondary market ticket prices are cheaper for this match-up, fans will see whether Stanford can beat Washington State for the second year in a row. Last year, Stanford beat Washington State, 55-17. Hogan threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns. Halliday left early with an injury. Fans will enjoy watching Stanford’s defense matchup against Washington State’s offense.
