SEATTLE (AP) -- After knocking off Stanford for the first time in four seasons, the Washington Huskies are looking toward getting another monkey off their backs.

The No. 2 Oregon Ducks. Washington moved into the AP poll at No. 23 after a 17-13 win over the then-No. 8 Cardinal on Thursday night.

Washington's defense showed a tenacity that has been missing for the better part of the last decade in the win, holding Stanford's power rushing attack to just 65 yards a week after the Cardinal ran for 202 yards in a win over USC.

Next up is a trip to Autzen Stadium and an opponent that hasn't been kind to the Huskies. Oregon has won the last eight meetings between the two teams by an average of 25 points a game.
