Stanford Rolling At The Half, Leads WSU 24-7

The Washington State Cougars can’t stop the run again this week and Stanford is powering the ball up and down the field thus far in Palo Alto. Behind two fumbles — by James Montgomery and Logwone Mitz — and an interception, the Cougar offense hasn’t done itself any favors, giving Stanford a short field and stalling any potential drives in the first half. Stanford has taken advantage, utilizing a power running game and relying on Andrew Luck’s accurate arm when necessary to beat the Cougars into submission.

The Cougars made it close, bringing the score to 10-7 on a Jeff Tuel pass to Jared Karstetter, but it was all Cardinal after that. Stefan Taylor rushed for 86 yards and a touchdown in the first half, while Luck threw for 117 yards, one touchdown and an interception.

Stanford rushed for 152 yards as a team in the first half and show no sign of slowing down.
