Former Folsom High School quarterback Jake Browning led the Huskies in the win, going 15 for 21 and throwing 210 yards and 3 touchdowns. The team, led by Myles Gaskin’s 100 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns, also out ran Stanford’s star back Christian McCaffrey 214 yards to 49 yards.

The Huskies look to remain undefeated when they take on the Oregon Ducks (2-3) October 8 in Eugene, Or. The Ducks lost Saturday to Washington State, 51-33.

The Rankings:

The Atlantic Coast Conference matched the Southeastern Conference for the most teams ranked in The Associated Press college football poll with six after a weekend where 10 Top-25 teams lost.

It’s the first time since 2006 that the ACC has six ranked teams.

Alabama remained No. 1 and had 53 first-place votes and Ohio State held on to No. 2. Clemson, from the ACC, moved up two spots to No. 3 after a dramatic victory against Louisville, which slipped four spots to No. 7.

Michigan remained No. 4, and No. 5 Washington moved up five spots after a dominant victory against Stanford. The last time the Huskies were ranked this high was 2000, when they won the Rose Bowl and finished No. 3 in the nation.

No. 10 Miami gives the ACC three in the top 10 to also match the SEC.
