--Washington State's first scoring drive, which ended with a Loren Langley field goal, was the ninth of the season under one minute...the series marks the 38th drive under a minute in the past three seasons (2002-2004).
--Cougar running back Allen Thompson had runs of 22 and 21 yards on the same drive in the second quarter...the longest run of his career prior to Saturday came as a freshman in 2001 against Arizona.
--Washington State donned gray/silver pants for the first time since the 1999 season finale at Hawaii.
--The loss to Stanford snapped WSU's seven game winning streak in nights games...WSU defeated Idaho, Boise State, Arizona and Montana State in 2001, Arizona in 2002 and New Mexico and Idaho earlier this season...last loss prior to tonight was at Oregon State in 2000.
--The Cougars lost their second straight games for the first time since a four-game skid in 2000.
--WSU is now 1-5 against Stanford in homecoming games.
--Trent Edwards' 67-yard touchdown pass to Evan Moore in the third quarter was the first time Washington State has given up a scoring throw of over 50 yards since USC's Matt Leinart connected with Steve Smith for a 55-yard strike Nov. 1 of last season.
--Hamza Abdullah's interception of a Trent Edwards pass in the third quarter was the first of his career...the senior co-captain took it away inside the Cardinal five-yard line and fell forward to the three.
--Washington State wide receiver Jason Hill hauled in five passes for 115 yards and a touchdown Saturday against Stanford...Hill now has nine touchdowns this season, just two off the Washington State single season record held by Kevin McKenzie (1997), Chris Jackson (1997), and Devard Darling (2002).
--Washington State's 180 rushing yards against Stanford was the most against a Pac-10 team since putting up 220 against UCLA in 2002.
