Stanford survived a final-round run by Washington to pull out a two-shot victory Wednesday at The Prestige at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif.
The Huskies carded the round of the day, a 14-under 270, but the Cardinal did enough with a 2-under 282 to finish at 21 under and open the spring with a victory.
Patrick Rodgers took medalist honors for Stanford, shooting a closing even-par 71 to end up at 9-under 204, one shot better than Max Rottluff of Arizona State. Washington's Gerrit Chambers was third at 7 under.
The Cardinal also got top 10s from Cameron Wilson (T-4) and Jim Liu (T-7), who was competing as an individual.
UCLA was third at 11 under while LSU (6 under) was fourth. USC finished a disappointing ninth out of 12 teams.
