Luck first led the team on a quick touchdown drive before the half to up the Card's lead to 17-7. Then, in the third quarter, after Stanford's defense forced a turnover on downs, Luck found a streaking Coby Fleener on a 60-yard touchdown pass to up Stanford's lead to 24-7.
The rout was on.
On the Blue Devils' next possession, Stanford forced and recovered a Jamison Crowder fumble.
A few plays later, Jeremy Stewart found a gaping hole up the middle and rushed 30 yards untouched for another Card score.
