The Huskies have some experience when it comes to the nation's two best teams facing off. On Saturday, No. 2 UConn faces top-ranked Stanford; in three previous visits to Palo Alto, the Huskies are 0-3 but interestingly, are 3-0 against the Cardinal in games in which the teams were ranked first and second in the country.
