Then-UW quarterback Jake Locker is sacked during last year's 41-0 loss to Stanford at Husky Stadium. The Huskies are hoping for a better outcome Saturday when they play the Cardinal. But Stanford QB Andrew Luck has been unbeatable so far this season.

The Washington Huskies take on Stanford in California this Saturday. They're hoping for a much better showing than last season's embarrassing 41-0 loss at Husky Stadium.

Standing in their way is the best quarterback since John Elway, according to KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel.

Andrew Luck has led the Cardinal to nothing but wins so far this season. Art says it's the biggest game for the Huskies in years.

Find out more about what he has to say tomorrow morning at 5:35 and 7:35 on 88.5 KPLU. Check back here for a blog of our commentary.
